You may or may not have noticed that we are going "Scottish" around here. I'm not even sure why. I just woke up one day in Scotland, I guess.
So, I've been finding plaids and designing hats to fill the "need" of being Scottish. Emily's hat was from a recycled skirt, a pair of jeans. How much did they cost? Well, I am not sure. You see, I was at this fill a bag for $1.00 sale, and I shoved all of the things I could fit into three bags. In the end, one of the bags was free. So, I am guessing $.10?? The material I used for this hat was also from the bag:
I even make our house-guests wear my homemade hats. Really, it's getting out of control around here... (Yes, the material for Bear's hat was from that same bag sale)
Emily's hat is also from the scraps from the sale. The hat I'm wearing is from my Mom. She says that I bought it for her. (I have no recollection of this) I made the scarf thingy, and the sweater? found in the lost and found at Gwinn High School back when my Dad was teaching (12? years ago)..
Jacket from garage sale from a few years ago ($2.00?), skirt from aforementioned bag sale, scarf: ditto, and the white shirt? ($1.00, thrift store)
Who needs to travel when you can dress up and pretend?
And yes, I have been doing "the Highland fling" for those of you who were wondering...
