I made this "skirt" out of leftover pieces of screen (from a screen door.) What a pain in the neck (not to mention the hands-especially the fingers!)

Pattern or design used: My own design - Jackie, from Bliss Farm Antiques

shabbychick writes: You did a fantastic job on the skirt - and endured the pain too - congrats! I've done projects (using wire, broken china, etc...) that have wore out my hands - but the end results are worth it (just not something I'd do every day!!).

Your end result is very clever and so cool!

Thanks for sharing,

Give your hands a good soaking. Nice work.
