This is a post about the Cutest. Fabric. Ever.
A Thumbelina border print with flowers, birds, mushrooms, and ladybugs. If there was a hedgehog or a fox hiding in there, this print would probably burst into flames from the cuteness.
So of course, I had to make it into a skirt for Phoebe.
I bought a yard and cut it in half parallel to the selvedge (so it was 36" wide x 21" tall), sewed it in a circle, and added some elastic. Something super simple that lets the fabric do all the talking. There was still a bit of excess fabric from the half piece that I used, so I whipped up a cute little purse to match.
And what makes this fabric even more amazing and awesome???!!!.....
......you've still got the other half of your fabric left to make into a matching skirt and purse for your daughter's bff! More times that not, sewing your own clothes doesn't save money, but in this case - I got two skirts and two matching purses out of only one yard of fabric. A high quality, Japanese cotton-linen blend, nonetheless.
Can it get any better? Well heck yes, it can! It's currently on sale in Brenda's shop! I'm just trying to refrain from making one for myself....
