I don't remember how long it's been since

I have done any sewing.  It seems forever.  

I bought a pattern (pdf format)from Thread Riding Hood  to make a child's skirt out of two fat quarters of material.  Both N's are into wearing dresses and skirts at the moment so I thought I would make a skirt each for them.




The pattern is so easy to follow and she gives you step by step instructions.  I did not use fat quarters as I had other material available.  Can't wait to give them to the girls.


As I liked this pattern so much I think I will have a look through her other patterns here and see what they have.

Cute patterns. I sew from time to time, I think the last thing besides a few repairs was the towel apron I made.

Nicely done!

I can manage to sew a button if needed, but that's about it.

They are so cute....take a pic of the girls in them when you give them to them. Also, have you seen how they take just a simple t-shirt or tank top and make it into a dress? Like the one I did here? I think you can find videos on you tube...I just cut the tank top off, and cut fabric to length and gathered it...am betting the hem is did the same way you did that skirt.
