woo! an ikea skirt

thanks to erika, who spotted this wonderful hack, you can now not only live ikea, you can wear ikea too. ironically, this is from melissa of fehrtrade, who was absolutely hates ikea yet was dragged into what she calls the 9th circle of hell.

on her blog, melissa wrote, “across the warehouse-wasteland expanse of the store, a bold red print called out to me. but on further inspection, the print belonged to just some pillowcases. how disappointing! or, what if i could somehow turn those pillowcases into something wonderful?

it took an evening, but out of two pillowcases and a bit of bias binding, this skirt emerged (and because the pillowcases each had a zipper, i’ve got an extra now!)

very nice. i’m tempted to make one myself too. link.
