Some Sewing!

I have been able to get quite a few sewing projects done in these past couple of weeks.  This little skirt was for a very special little girls first birthday!  My own pattern and I just love how it turned out!
Amy Butler Fabric

Underskirt with ruffle. Grosgrain Ribbon finished edge.

My favorite little feature.... Adjustable waist!!!  I like the look of flat front skirts so much better than when they are all elastic.  This gives it a little more give size-wise!
 I also don't care if I see another ruffle for awhile!  That probably won't last very long!  I made a blanket for our family to use for family photos here soon.  We are going to take them in an orchard and I needed something for the kids to sit on.  It is made out of Chambray which goes with just about everything! I made it big enough so that I can use it for future shoots also.
I will use it this way for families.

And this way for just the kids.

Now I just need the weather to cooperate so that I can get our photos taken!!!

I like both projects, Kyla! The skirt is adorable & I love the flower ruffle embellishments for the blanket!
