Kira has decided that she really loves skulls!!
(I need to post the pictures of skulls she keeps drawing!)
I gave in - I've had a long standing "no skulls" rule because I thought they were too creepy for my baby, but how can you deny skulls on pink fabric!?!?
Kira had some plans for the material that involved making pillows.
I convinced her today to make a skirt with the fabric after we looked at the skirt tutorials on Hickety Pickety and Venus de Hilo
We decided to use all of the fabric and make it into a patchwork style skirt!
This was an easy enough project that Kira could do most of the sewing on.
Her new sewing machine from her grand-rat works great and is easy for her to use.
We had to add an extra panel of fabric because I miss calculated and it was going to be WAY small!
Thankfully we had enough extra fabric!!
I used the Hickety Pickety idea of the "no hem" skirt and loved how it turned out. It added some length too and gave it a more polished look without me having to make a straight hem!!
We finished it in a few hours and she had a skirt right after lunch!
She LOVES it and wants to wear it on the first day of school!!!
This is Kira's favorite skull from all the fabric!!
