Summer is ending and if you live anywhere like Phoenix, LA or Palm Springs you know your hot days are about to really hit! It’s never too late to make one of these skirts to wear in the fall.

Things You Will Need:

  • Satin 1-2 Yards
  • Tulle 8-10 Yards
  • Thread
  • Sewing Machine
  • Elastic Belt
  • Dye

First figure out your waist size, add 2 inches then divide it by 6.28. This will give you the radius for your waist.

Let’s start by cutting the tulle.  Take 1.5×1.5 yards of tulle and fold it in half. Next, take a pin and place it at the top middle of the fold. Attached a string that is the same length as your waists radius and use it as a guide to cut a half circle.

Keeping the tulle folded in half, add 20in to the end of the sting and repeat. Unfolded, you should have a circle cutout of tulle with a smaller circle in the middle (your waist size).

For the satin or silk, repeat the same steps as above using 1 square yard of fabric instead. Adjust the length of the skirt by 5 or 10 inches depending on preference.

Sew a basting or straight stitch along the waist to keep tulle from sliding and moving around.

For the waist band use a thick elastic belt and sew the ends together. Pin inside out the inner layer, tulle and elastic belt in the waist. There will be extra room with fabric so even it out around the elastic belt.

Then once ready to sew pull and stretch elastic out with the skirt. this will bunch the tulle at elastic. once you finish the waist turn it inside right and you have a tulle skirt.

Greeting Cards

A fun way to use and reuse your watercolor scraps is to make your own custom greeting cards. Simply cut out different shapes. Hot glue for a solid hold and quicker dry. I used different size hole punchers, cut out different shapes like hearts or abstract triangles and squares. Super easy and fun! this can take anywhere from 30 minutes to hours depending on how many cards you make! Your friends and family will love them because its the thought that counts right? -Angela

Kyanite is a powerful stone that is known for aligning all of the Chakras. Unlike other stones, Kyanite doesn’t absorb any negative energy, which means that it never needs to be cleansed. Instead, Kyanite rapidly transfers energy through vibrations. Kyanite is also useful for communication skills, as it can create pathways of energy that help send information telepathically. It also restores energy balance.

Blue apatite:Apatite is a stone known for helping those who wear it achieve their goals. It first clears away confusion, apathy or negativity. Then, it stimulates the intellect to expand knowledge and truth, which may be used for personal growth or for the collective good. It is a Stone of Manifestation.
