New in my Etsy shop



i have not had so much fun making something in a long time.
i have seen little bubble skirts around, but wasn't exactly sure how to make one.
so i went to work...




i got it right on the first try!
i was worried that it would be hard...but it was SO EASY to make!
i took a lot of time to take good photo's for the step-by-step tutorial that comes with the pattern.
beginning sewers you can make this skirt!

i giggled with excitement when it was finished!
(yes i made that headband with my rosette headband tutorial that is for sale in my etsy shop)



lucy has worn this skirt 2 days in a row i will have to admit :o)
it is reversible, so she likes to take her time deciding which side she will wear.



here is one side...



here is the other...



it has the perfect amount of bubble to it!
i can hardly stand it!




the pattern is in my etsy shop today.
thank you everyone for your kind words and support.
they keep me pressing forward on this crazy blog!

for all you sewers and even you beginners i want to give away 2 free patterns!

leave a comment letting me know you are all over it :o)
i'll choose 2 winners randomly next week.
*winners email me your email address and i will email the pattern and step-by-step tutorial.



more fun things to come next week!
see you then!
