Skirts

My friend Jodi has this great blog where she posts tutorials on how to make some really cute crafts. I usually look at the crafts and think that they are really cute but way to advanced for me to attempt. The other day though she posted a tutorial for these super cute skirts and as I was reading through the tutorial I decided they would be easy enough for me to make. So this Tuesday my friend Lillian and I decided to give the skirts a try and I think that they turned out really cute. My sewing skills are super lacking so the skirts are far from perfect but I learned a lot and I am going to try to improve my skills and make another set of skirts for my girls to wear on the 4th of July (I already bought the fabric and it is really cute!) So if any of you have daughters, nieces, grand daughters, little sisters, etc. and want to make them a really cute easy skirt I would recommend this tutorial (the tutorial is for a skirt for a child around the age of 5 but I modified the directions to fit a 1-2 year old so if you want my measurements for a 1-2 year old just ask!).

This picture of Ella cracks me up!

I think these are so cute and I checked it out and think that I can do it too! Can you send me the measurements for a one year old and two year old? Thanks!

Completely adorable. If I had motivation to make one (aka a daughter), I would so do it. Good job Kerstin!

You have a talent, Kirsten! Those are adorable and I bet your little girls will very much appreciate having a mom who can sew modest outfits that are really cute! Keep at it, you're doing a great job :)
