And a Cherry on top!

Usually I post only stamping things here but I am learning to sew and wanted to show off my project. Pity my poor sewing teacher. I am taking classes once a month from Trish (check out her Two Peas blog and Etsy store) and I am probably the least knowledgeable of anyone in the class. Trish is extremely talented and soooo patient! This month we made a cute little swing skirt and an applique t-shirt. I was not able to finish my skirt and applique in class but I got it done over the weekend and I'm so happy with it! The pattern is the Girly Skirt by Pink Fig. I added a Pure Poppy button from PaperTrey Ink and some SU! ric-rac to my cupcake for fun. Sorry, I can't remember who made the fabrics but if you want to know I can check and see if I have a piece left with the manufacturer's name on it.

I made a 3t size (I know it looks huge in the photo) and it is a bit long for my little girl so she may even be able to wear it next Spring. I bought some yummy new fabric that is a bit more Fall-looking and I plan to make another skirt soon before I forget all the tips of putting it together.

Have a good one and thanks for stopping by!

Well I'm envious of ANYONE who can sew! Loving your T-shirt and skirt and love the fact that you can combine your PTI stash with your new skill ;D

Woohoo! I'm sewing now, too. So far i've made some little taggie crinkle squares and a dress for my newborn niece. I want to try applique next.. How was it to learn?

You are an excellent seamstress Kim! And I love the additions you did to the shirt. Super cute!

...and your fabrics are from Heather Baileys Pop Garden line.

Did you carry your new purse today? I think the four pockets were the perfect "mistake"! :>)
