one dollar


so, what will a dollar get you? well, it will take you from the duvet cover above to this...

in ikea last week, all of the as-is linens were just two bucks. this duvet cover had a couple of spots on it. but never fear, i only used half of the cover and didn't have to worry with the spots. i used the pattern for the kimono-style bathrobe from the book in stitches by amy butler. this is for my sister-in-law and i think she will enjoy it. i had put this project off for a while, mostly because i was intimidated by it. but it was actually quite easy and fun to make. here is a side shot...

not too bad for a dollar, huh?

wow. so that's the robe! very impressive. although at first i thought it was a shirt and was having a hard time picturing you wearing this to the grocery store. i'm sure your sister-in-law will be very happy.

I wish I was your sister-in-law! She is going to love that. And I would totally wear it as a shirt. :)
