I went a little overboard with the skirts, but I had a blast doing it. Here are four little skirts for four little cousins. There's going to be a lot of "Oh my gosh, those are sooo cuuute!!!" going on. The fact that they're pink is enough to bring on the "sooo cuuuute" comments. Of course, I get to play the, "I love you more than all your other Aunts, because I seeeew for you, and they don't". I'll say this with raised eyebrows while casting side glances at my sisters' jealous looks. Hee Hee Hee. Being an Aunt is such fun.
Sewing is a lot of fun. As I said before, it was surprisingly easy to sew these simple skirts. They could be frilled up quite a bit by making the ruffle a contrasting color, adding ribbon or rickrack, or even a tulle under ruffle peeking out would be really cute. The whole pattern was only two pieces cut out twice (a square and a long rectangle), straight seams, and the ruffle.
Now I would like to pass along the award I received recently from Egghead. I would like to send it along to Sugar Creek Farm. I really appreciate her sharing their real farm life (while I'm still in pretend stage). They do a lot of things I admire: raise crops, kids, cattle, poultry, sell at the farmer's market and numerous other things. All the while keeping a really positive attitude while dealing with the challenges of farming and figuring out how to get all the ends to meet up eventually. Thanks Sugar Creek Farm for your fun inspirational web site.
