We all have our favorite blogs that we have to check on regularly, and one of my top faves is CrafterHours.
Adrianna & Susan always have practical, but entirely inspirational projects & ideas.
When I saw an awesome tutorial at CrafterHours for this fun skirt, I had to give it a try for Miss D.
Sometimes I get a little gung-ho when I'm crafting...
And when that happens, I make mistakes.
Take this perfectly lovely pair of pajama pants;
I was cutting out a pattern piece and accidentally went right through the pattern to my darling, oh-so-Sandra-Lee-inspired pajama pants!!!
Yep, big hole through the thigh:(
Not as bad as the time my cousin was using a drill and placed a screw into his thigh,
but nevertheless, a tragic loss....
So I re-invented the precious pjs into the Valentine MilkMaid skirt!
I ripped a couple of seams and "Wallah!" a couple of yards of fabric:)
I knew that I wanted to use the existing hem--- saves time in the end!
So I matched-up the seams and pinned them before starting to cut.
Yep, ric-rac+hearts=totally irresistable!
Plus my tiny toddler girl loves the deep pockets to hold her many treasures:)
I am totally NOT missing those cozy pajama pants anymore!
So go ahead and give the darling Milk Maid Skirt a try!
