So my kid has these three adorable onesies for summer:
Problem is that I’m not really a just a onesie kindof a mom. It’s cool for sleeping in but I don’t want to take her out and about without pants on. Not ok with that. Because, really, pants always beats no pants. May as well start that rule now along with the “You will eat what we eat when we eat it I’m not a short order cook and this isn’t grandma’s house” rule. So I thought that with my newfound sewing abilities it would be fun to try to make her a little skirt to go with them. I pulled out one of her skirts to use as a “pattern” and noticed that it was about the same size as a fat quarter…
And the wheels started turning.
Would it be possible to make 2 skirts out of nothing but 3 fat quarters? And could I make those skirts match all of these little onsies?
Yes. Yes I can.
It was a pretty simple process. Cut, sew, elastic, done.
I will model this onesie without even putting it on. I am that fierce.
And they turned out completely adorable.
I like wearing skirts. They are fun to play with.
The best part is that I used up every scrap of fabric that I bought. That’s new for me. I usually walk in to the fabric store, get all giddy with the possibilities, spend an hour lamenting fabric choice, and then walk out with about a million more yards than I need.
Whatever, Mommy. That's how you build a fabric stash.
I will absolutely be making more of these!
I'm ALLDONE with this modeling gig.
Oh and in other news I figured out the “Networked Blogs” thing. So if you want to follow Life in Cleveland via Facebook there’s a link on the sidebar.
