From cushions to funky skirts

Well, not been on here for so long, but I've decided I need to get on the case again, and report my day to day finds, inspirations and creations! 
I won't mention any names but crap towns are particularly good for great charity shops- one of my favourites is in the south of the country and I get extremely excited about doing the rounds when I go for a visit! I've got this old skirt- that I live in-we all have our favourites don't we! And thought rather than search high and low for something similar- why not make some?! Silly really, when I makes soft furnishings, upholster and do all sorts of other crafts, why I've not tried before.
So, I went on a mooch today for all sorts of fabrics, whether it be old clothes, tea towels,table cloths etc and this is what I came up with, all for under a tenner! I particularly love the banana fabric, and very excited to try and re-make this tatty old skirt in an array of bright colours and patterns tonight, watch this space!
