On Fridays, Miss ME doesn’t have any afternoon therapy.
This past Friday, after school, we had a girls day.
Off to Friendly’s we went, then onto Joann’s and finally Barnes & Noble.
In Joann’s Miss ME found a tutu in the discount bin and wearing the fabulous tutu and a Jim Dandy crown from Friendly’s, she put on a show for me on the stage at Barnes & Noble.
By Saturday, the tutu was looking a little ragged….lots of love during that 24 hours 🙂
So, I searched Youtube and found The Crafty Gemini’s tutorial for a Simple Girl’s Skirt.
I had left over fabric from my cousin’s Book Pillow.
This is a very easy tutorial to follow and made the cutest skirt!
One thing I did was to incorporate the first steps of the magic pillow case tutorial.
I did this to make a color band hem and allow me not to have to sew a hem.
Miss ME tried it on, did a few twirls, then declared “I hate skirts” and took it off.
(insert my major eye roll here)
Three year olds.
While making this skirt, I realized I need a pin cushion.
I found a Youtube tutorial named How to sew a pincushion in under 5 minutes.
Now, it is supposed to be a flat pin cushion.
I somehow sewed it weird and made this:
I think this will work better for me!
I have decided to challenge my knitting skills also.
I am joining the Joji Mystery Wrap KAL (by Joji Locatelli).
Described as “a lot of garter and simple lace”, I hope I can do it!
I am only using stash yarn so I may be using #2 weight instead of #1 weight (better for me).
This starts May 12th!
Have a good week!
