Lame to Awesome (why I LOVE my embroidery machine)

My new laundry sorter from WalMart



I was a little concerned how my machine would handle the thick canvas fabric with plastic coating, but it worked perfectly.  I just turned them inside out and hooped them.  No seam ripping/resewing required.

Madras Skirt - more photos

I found a couple more photos of my madras skirt on my other camera.  I think these came out a little better. 

I had a pair of madras shorts from J Crew quite a few years ago that I wore a lot.  They were pretty short and seemed to get tighter through the years :-)  so I got rid of them a year or two ago.  I think this skirt is a good mommy alternative, but now thinking about those shorts, I kind of want to get more fabric to try and make a pair.

I'm not sure what my next project will be.  I still have one more skirt to do for the Sawyer Brook sew along, but I may take a break and make some things for my nieces.
