These are my new gypsy pants and hip scarf. Note the fancy bells! The scarf can be used anywhere. It's really pretty as a wrap-around. I was actually going to use that material as a skirt but it's thin and itchy. I have some left which has no use so far.
Andy's Alzheimer-ridden grandma kept asking me what I was sewing to which I would reply "it's a hip scarf!" and she would respond "that's a lot of material for a head scarf!" "No no...a HIP SCARF!" then she would say "Well it's still a lot of material!"...of course my smart mouth replies "I have a lot of hips!" She's lucky she didn't agree to that. Otherwise I would hold her Metamucil for ransom and hide all her freaking washcloths that she leaves all over my bathroom.
I found great fabric at Hancock's yesterday for $8.95 a yard...formerly $12.95. I didn't add right and ended up spending $45 on it. Sigh.
