{this moment} a handmade skirt


















I know its hard because her face is so cute, but did you notice the skirt?  I made it today!  I bought the fabric when I was pregnant for Sarah but never did anything with it.  This morning, she found it in my box, spread it on the floor, and curled up on it.  She has a weakness for pretty things.  It was obvious that she loved it, so I asked her if she wanted me to make her a skirt with it.


She yells when she gets excited.

I used a piece of old homemade lace that my cousin Elisha gave me to trim the hem.

The fabric is thick, soft flannel.  Just right for these winter days.

I sewed away on the skirt while Seth and Sarah played at my feet and touched my sewing machine/pin cushion/scissors/seam ripper too many times.

I yell when I get excited, too.

Happy Friday!
