So cute! Now I'm inspired to tackle a sewing project for baby girl. I've been putting it off as I still get nervous reading patterns, etc. Love that fabric :)


You are a clever girl! When I was growing up I didn't know what it was to have store bought clothing. My Mom made everything! I am convinced the sewing gene skips a generation. I am so clumsy at it. I love to do other handcrafts, but sewing just eludes me. So I am a great admirer of sewers!
Have a happy 4th!

This is darling! It's making me want to go look at patterns to make myself some summer skirts! LOVE the fabric!


Wow! I have tried to sew a few things but I think I'd better stick to scrapbooking. Sewing is totally not my forte. YOU ARE MY HERO! The skirt is very cute but I am in love with that dress!

I'm size 7/8 if you feel like whipping one up!


Great idea re-using a bedspread. Is that bias tape at the bottom of the skirt?? Happy Fourth!
