A Mini Post

Getting back into the sewing room for me post Christmas has been a bit challenging.  However, this week my husband was out of town for business for a couple of nights, and I finally think I might be back.  Maybe.  We'll see.  I whipped out this Little Mini Skirt for Grace while he was gone.

If you have a little girl, this pattern is very reasonably priced and comes together rather quickly and easily.  And the author of the pattern is in Paris which just makes me like the pattern that much more.  I mean Paris is the couture capital of the world, right?  Handmade is their expertise.

I've got two more skirts cooking up in my sewing room.  With any luck Grace will have two  new additions to here wardrobe by the end of the weekend.

I bought a copy of this book and it arrived in the mail yesterday.  Grace wants a Bear Carrier, and George wants a Penguin Backpack.

I'm also working on a project and simple tutorial for the 100 Acts of Kindness Project.  If you have young kids, or just want to spread kindness, you should jump on over to Toddler Approved.  It will blow your mind!

As you can see, I have plenty to keep  me busy this weekend and beyond.

Now I just need to go get started.  More realistically I should go and clean up a mess, get a kid dressed, or feed someone so I can work on my list of things to sew once the house is quiet again tonight.

I hope to have lots to share next week.  Have a good weekend! Tootles for now!

How did I miss this?! I love the zebra with the red. What an outstanding combination. Can't wait to see the next two. This skirt is really so great!

What sweet zebra fabric! I want one too! Totally cute! Luke has been asking me to make a backpack for him. I'll have to check out that book.

Did you know I found the same sweater on our Target clearance for $4?! I was super excited when that happened. I've been meaning to share the excitement with you for a while :)

Did you know you are the only one I know who scores the most amazing deals on the Target clearance racks?!? I was just there tonight, and I'm also so annoyed with how little there is!

I'm sew glad you found the same black cardigan. It's been a nice staple to Grace's wardrobe.
