Three Tiered Skirts

Way back in 2010, my cousin, Laura gave me a huge sewing bug after she made some adorable skirts for her girls. I had to follow suit, and soon found myself knee deep in fabric and multiple patterns. lol

sewing-making-memories-with-kids-these-are-your-days-skirts-eternal-reflections-photography-bI decided to start small/basic with this Three Tiered skirt pattern which I LOVED! And so did Brooklyn, PLUS they were really easy to make.

And the best part? The skirts live on with my other cousins’ young girls.


My heart swoons

The Polka Dot Chair

I WANT TO MAKE THIS!!! Another blog found from aimless internet wandering 🙂 As we all know I’m on a bit of a skirt sewing kick – and now that the weather is turning (much to my dismay – I’m so not ready to say goodbye to the summer sunshine) I know I’ll be spending a whole lot more time at my sewing machine! This has promptly been added to my list – a fantastic tutorial from The Polka Dot Chair!

In addition, I want to make this completely adorable matching skirt for a doll :

I absolutely love both skirts (though personally prefer the fabric on the doll version) and can’t wait to try them out.

Swimsuit Cover Up

A friend of mind sent me the link to this fantastic blog with some adorable sewing projects. This swim cover looked like the perfect project and boy was it ever! So easy to follow and so adorable – my daughter LOVES it! I also have since helped a friend make SEVEN of them for her daughters and nieces and they turned out sooo cute. It’s an awesome and easy way to feel like you can make something great!

So check it out (and show her some love) and see what other patterns you can find. I have plans to make a few of the sundresses and am finding it difficult not to buy all the fabric at once. There is value in timing – but this fall and winter you can bet what my days will be spent doing.
