Sneak Peek progress for my Impossibility Challenge

Yes, I actually started on my huge project that you can read about here! I thought I would go with the sewing first as I thought that might take the longest. So I eyed the vanity and decided what fabric I had in my stash that looked similar to my inspiration vanity......

And I came up with this.........
 So that's what I used for the top ruffle, I choose unbleached muslin for the main skirt. After adding a lining to the muslin I sewed velcro onto the inside of the skirt and stapled the other part of the velcro to the vanity table. Here's a pic sewing the velcro on......
Then I used my gathering foot on my sewing machine to ruffle the floral fabric then sewed it to the main skirt.

Here is just a sneak peek of what it looks like velcroed to the vanity.....

I also started painting an old trifold mirror I've had forever to go on top of the vanity.....

Still not completely done with the vanity skirt but I'm getting closer. I need to kick things in to high gear if I'm going to finish everything by the end of the month, whew!
