I know. Another skirt.
It’s so easy!
But seriously, whenever Lucy’s invited to a friend’s birthday party I spend the week stewing over what to buy them as a gift. And then I have that “duh” moment when I pull a yard of fabric from my stash, start cutting and sewing….and 20 minutes later, the gift is done.
Especially when it’s made from good quality cotton.
And this pretty print reminded me of tulips….which Casey brought home on Valentine’s day.
Everybody loves flowers too!
(Thank you Casey).
If you’re making a skirt as a gift and you’re not sure on their waist-size, look online at a standard child’s sizing chart, or simply ask their mom to measure their waist. And lately, I’ve been making my girls’ skirts 3 times their waist (rather than 2 times)….just to get it nice and full. There are so many options. So if you want to mix it up a bit, here are some other skirt tutorials for you:
And don’t forget you can watch the simple skirt video here:
Then let your kids create the wrapping paper, and your gift is ready to go.
I love watching these two together. Lucy is so patient with Clara, letting her play and tag along with whatever she’s doing. She’s such a good sister.
