I love it that is really clever and looks great. I wish I could sew. I am getting into thrift in a big way. I have just blogged about how I have adapted a 'Charity Shop find' I am very proud of it.

Wow, this is fantastic! I love the finished article... maybe one day I'll be brave enough to have a go at this! Was it just a matter of measuring, sewing a seam and cutting?
