Scalloped skirt and floral garland with Lily fabric from Penny Rose

The first thing I thought of when I saw this fabric was pink lemonade. It’s just so happy and bright. It was almost exactly 6 years ago that I first published this skirt tutorial.…

Currently in progress

 This is the mock up I made of the skirt tutorial I am in the process of writing.  Hopefully it will be done this evening. (to be posted on another blog- I’ll let you know as soon as it’s up) I kept feeling that I needed to make a nativity set of figurines.  The baby Jesus comes out of the manger (my 2 year old loves this feature) and they sit on blocks that read “Silent Night”.  I’m pretty happy…

Fresh from the Farm skirt

 When I set out to create a skirt, or pillow, or whatever for that matter- I usually have a picture in my head of what I want it to look like, but usually no pattern or other practical experience on how to make it to pull from.  So, basically it’s a crap-shoot whether or not something will turn out the way I want it to.  I know many of you find yourselves in the same boat.  So, here’s my question…

A New Skirt

This darling daughter of mine has been so patient with me. She let me experiment with her clothes, and even wears some of the ones I make for her in public! She was in dire need of some new skirts, and the one thing I have is fabric- so we went about making this one. I really like how it turned out. I used a pattern I bough at Joann’s when they were $.99 one time, but there are tutorials…
