Recently made skirts - and a few other things.

 kimono dress


 kimono jacket made for a baby shower gift

 shirt and stuffed bunny for a birthday gift


  my hot mats were in SAD shape.  Embarassingly sad.  So I whipped out a new one...


...and liked it so well I made a few more!  Anyone need some?  I could probably part with one or two!!

new skirt for me:)
skirt for a friend.  Made on the bias.  Looks so cute on her!

Barcelona skirt - made for a lady I met on my shopping excursion to Columbus!

Another skirt for the lady from Columbus.

Ready to go in the box and head to Columbus!  She should get them tomorrow.  I'm nervous.  What if they don't fit??!!!  I measured and remeasured.  And compaired and recompaired with the skirt she sent me to go by.  Oh well, if they DON'T fit guess I'll get to make another trip to Columbus!!

Dresses made for Little Sister and Middle Sister
From an Oliver and S pattern.  Best patterns ever.
