A Birthday Skirt



I made this skirt for my little neighbor's birthday this weekend. I love the fabrics together, both are old bed sheets. :) I wanted it to look like a twirly skirt on top of a twirly skirt, and I really like the way it turned out. My girls liked it too so it looks like I will be making more soon, I guess it's a good thing that it sewed up fast!


Do you see that there? Those plants in my flower garden? It's squash! Somehow in all of the planting this Spring these little guys ended up here. When we were weeding it a few weeks back I told the kids to just leave them be. If they want to grow there we will let them. :)


My most favorite part about giving this skirt away was the wrapping! I rolled it up like a bouquet of flowers, stuck the end into an old cardboard tube, and wrapped it with tissue.


The girls had a very interesting *conversation* in the car, on the way over to the party, about who was going to carry it in....Maddie won. What's that? You didn't know that conversations could be won? Haha. Oh yes you did. :) xo, Sam
