Skirt Frenzy

Thursday, December 11, 2008

I didn't make the vinyl tile. Our former bishops wife made that for us, I didn't make the manger either. Technically my dad did. But without me telling him what I want, it would have never been made. We are trying to see if we can fill the manger with soft, warm straw by doing kind acts so that baby Jesus will have a nice bed on Christmas Day.

Same with this one. I didn't make the nativity, or the star. I did buy them! I have looked high and low for a manger for my new pieces. No such luck, so I made my dad build me a stand for them. I think I like it better than a manger.

Lady in Red

I think these simple twirl skirts are becoming a fast favorite of mine. It was red day at preschool and she had nothing to wear...shocking because RED is my FAVORITE color!

At 8:00 the night before, I realized this little fact and remembered seeing some "Minnie Mouse" fabric at Hancock several weeks earlier. I ran to the store and grabbed it. At 40% off it was a steal! It was even better with my 20% off coupon! Then on the way home I ran into Wal-Mart to grab a white t-shirt. I had the ribbon at home already. 45 minutes later, we had a red outfit for under $5.00.

Simple Twirl Dress

I saw an outfit like this in a posh little girl's clothing store and the price tag on the skirt was outrageous at almost $40. So I took a yard of fabric, sewed four straight lines and threaded some elastic through. The only difference that I can see is that the polka dots on the other skirt were bigger.

By-the-way...my fabric cost me $2. I had the elastic already, but if I had bought that, it would have been maybe $1.

Pacifier Clips

I loved that when I was in the store the other day I saw these heart mitten clips on clearance. Gotta love clearance. Normal mitten/suspender clips are never this fun. I cut off the elastic that was attached and sewed up my own little something. Tack a little velcro on the end and you have a versatile binky clip.
