Sewing and thrifting

Made a vest for Layla's Birthday from this skirt I bought at Goodwill. I blanket stitched the edges. Hope she likes it.This accessory holder came from Goodwill for $1.99. It came in handy for my buttons. Wasn't sure what I was going to use it for until today.
Got these today at a couple thrift stores. The pattern came from my Mom. I made the skeleton outfit for my son when he was 10. Got the black material at Goodwill and thought I would make this for Jakob.

Brenda, what a sweet little vest! I'm sure she's going to love it.

What will you use for the white part of the skeleton costume? Is it just white fabric that is sewn on?

I love your button holder! What an excellent idea. Mine are in glass canisters. I have to dump them every time I need to find the perfect button.
