Valentine’s Skirt

Penny and I are in a fight. Remember that from when you were kids? How you and your best friend would be “in a fight” so you’d go find a new “best friend” until you suddenly were bff’s with your old best friend again? Well, that’s what it’s like for Penny and me right now. We’re in a fight – but don’t worry, I have a feeling that we’ll make up pretty soon. (And by that, I mean I figured out how to fix her so she’s exactly what I want her to be – which is what being a bff is all about when you’re 5. So, obviously I’m a five-year-old this week.)

Anyway, while I was fighting with Penny, I saw this post about a cute toddler skirt. I loved the fabrics, so while I was at my local quilt shop I picked up a charm pack of L’Amour by Moda and made a skirt for my Bear. (She’s not quite two, so she hasn’t quite learned yet that she needs to strike a pose that accentuates the skirt when mama’s using her as a model!)

So cute, and perfect for Valentine’s Day.  I have plenty of fabric left to make one for her little sister, so I think I’ll take some pictures along the way with that one and post a tutorial!
