I managed a couple of projects in the last two months.

Wardrobe Refashion: Sarong to Elastic Skirt
I simply cut to desired length, sewed up one side, then sewed a casing for elastic.

Decor Project: Curtains for my bookcase
I bought a cafe rod from Dollar General for under $5. I was already using the fabric by having it sit under heavy items on top. So I sewed a simple and slightly uneven casing for the rod to slip through.

Although not a project, I also bought some new computer fans (2 blue lighted, 1 not) off of tigerdirect.comfor about $6 each.
