more sewing projects :: a sweet skirt!

i finally buckled down and made my first wearable! it's a skirt for my wee one made from an old sheet. working with a sheet is great because there's a built-in hem! sweet! less work for me, the newbie sewer. i did manage to sew a little pocket on there, which she uses for a little stone. in and out, in and out it goes.

it is full of imperfections, but it FITS. so, major score there. next time, i might try to make it a little flouncier. we'll see. i have a list of projects......curtains, dish towels, picnic blanket. i tend to get idea-crazy. biting off more than i can chew!

but i have to admit---it's super fun seeing her in something i MADE!
