School's starting Wednesday so I've been sewing the girls new school skirts. It's difficult to find modest uniform skirts that go below the knee...so my girls love to tell me what type of skirt they like and let me design it. I have this wonderful book "Sew What! Skirts" by Francesca Denhartog & Carole Anne Camp. It gives good and simple directions on how to create your own patterns for skirts using your specific measurements. I use some old Christmas wrapping paper to make the patterns. Then I write the girls name and date on their pattern and save it.
How to make a serviceable but old book bag fun and new for the new year....Seleste's plan is to add a cute patch and wrap the back straps in zebra print duct tape...you go Seleste!
