Something Special Saturday

Yesterday, I promised pictures of Superkid's new Twirly Skirt.

It really is twirly!

Superkid picked out the fabric herself.  Darling cherries and sprinkles!  

The hem was extra easy, I just used ribbon as if it were bias tape, folding it around the hem and sewing.  Aren't those great colors in that fabric?  So perfect for a girly-girl.
While I was standing in line at the fabric store, waiting for someone to cut my fabric, Superkid was exploring. She found the ice cream applique and begged for it to go on her skirt.  I though it would look better on the matching tee I found at Target, and Superkid went along with that.  She has great taste, don't you think?

Yummy!  I found the leggings at Target, too.  Love the ruffle detail.  Superkid loves the whole outfit!  I'm so glad I took the time to make it for her.  She loved telling her kindergarten friends that her mommy made her outfit.

As far as time went.....I think I made the whole thing in less than two hours!  That's my kind of project.

If you missed out on my other quickie projects, go here.  

These are some of the sites I've been visiting for sewing inspiration and instructions.

Sew, Mama, Sew!  Lots of tutorials on this one.
a pretty cool life  Cheryl's great pictures have convinced me that I need to try gathering and ruffling, next.
Stitch Market  Still loving this site.  

Have a great weekend!
