4th of July skirts









































Don't laugh too hard! I made this on a whim Saturday night out of some material I have had sitting around for five years, which were supposed to be curtains for Hailoo's (now 6 year old) nursery! That is more the purpose of this blog than anything is to make myself do new things and use up my stuff!!

I got a skirt that fit both my girls and stretched and measured and hoped it would fit! They were in bed by now, so no way of knowing! I basically sewed a pencil skirt, by putting the two patterned sides together and sewing down the sides. Then I hemed it and made an enclosure for the elastic. I had the flowers sitting around from something else and hot glued them (is that allowed?!) Then added ribbon. The girls were so excited when they woke up. Now I just have to figure out how to make them flare!

Disclaimer: Hailoo was being a grump because we couldn't find a matching shirt for Brooke so they could be twins. Guess the skirts weren't enough?!
Also, Brookie has more lovin' on her legs so the pencil skirt will probably be a one timer and turned into a baby bed or something!

haha, that is so funny! Not the skirt (I think the skirt is adorable), but Hailey! She reminds me so much of Bella. Bella would've had the grumps if I didn't have twinner shirts, too.

And I LOVE hot glue! Totally allowed! :)
