Tia Dalma has a petticoat.

October 28, 2008

Aha! Just when you thought I would procrastinate and spend the whole of Thursday night sewing like a woman possessed, I went and made my petticoat.

One quick trip to Value Village later, I started with a lovely, $3.99 ruffled bed skirt with a kind of odd pinkish hue.

I sewed a nice, big, layered tiered skirt and went on to tea stain it. But, 4 tea bags and scalding hot bath water just wasn’t doing the trick.  So I added some ingredients from the kitchen.

Hey this looks better,

But after I wrung it out and hung it to dry, my rather sickly sweet, salty petticoat still wasn’t dirty looking enough. So it was on to plan B. We took it out to the pond, and then dragged it along the gravel path. It still needed more ick, so into the flower bed for some good old stompin.

Ahh, that’s better.
