Finding New Ways to Raise Funds

Since we are selling items to raise funds for Katya's adoption, Charity and I are always looking for inspiration and we found some earlier in the week when we read what is one of our top favorite blogs--Pleasant View Schoolhouse

Anna shared how she had made a upcycled skirt for her daughter, Daisy, from a T-shirt, and I instantly felt my cogs begin to churn A trip to our local thrift store when I was already in town yielded me 3 possible T-s. Charity felt a bit dubious when I handed her the "utilitarian green designed to hide sweat and dirt stains" as she put it! She thought I might have chosen a nicer color.

But, faithful daughter that she is, she set to work obediently, using the gifts God has blessed her with-- and this is what that drab, dark, ugly green T turned into.

Pretty, huh?

I think Charity did an out-standing job on it--and by the time she was done, she'd totally transformed that dull  T into a soft, feminine skirt that is so soft and comfy that it's a delight to feel and see! It sold quickly after I posted it on Facebook, and so it's not available for sale now. Stay tuned though--there are more skirts in the works! And as always, proceeds go to HELP BRING KATYA HOME! ;-)

It's really pretty, and it's very hard to believe it was once a dull t-shirt! So happy that it sold quickly - it should, being as pretty as it is!
