I made her a skirt…

During K’s last real crib nap on Saturday (yeah, the big girl bed and big girl naps do NOT go hand-in-hand so far…) I mustered up the courage to use my sewing machine again.
MONTHS ago I pinned an easy skirt idea and bought the supplies and everything. But I had a few problems with my brand new machine can you say user error? and was a little hesitant to try again.
But thankfully the stars and seams aligned (!) and I channeled just a bit of the sewing abilities of her and her (I do admire them so!) and I was able to make a skirt for K in just a couple of hours (with interruptions from a couple of certain boys wanting snacks, etc.)
I may even be brave enough to make another one (or three).
I mean after all, it’s perfect for scooter-ing and dancing in the yard… :)
