Mikayla just loved her twirly skirt. She asked if she could wear it all the time. So in love with it myself, i said no - I'd have to make a play skirt for playtime. This material was picked out by this fairy princess at JoAnn Fabrics. She just loves butterflies, and found the perfect match of materials! She's got her mother's eye for it!
A good site I found: The Kings Daughters
This is a fun valance I put together for our school room. The material has little school supplies on it like scissors, crayons, glue, and rulers. I embellished with some buttons. I've made curtains before, but it's my favorite one so far! Now I have to paint the room to match! Agh! It will drive me nuts soon enough.
This is merely to prove that I really did make these things, not buy it. But for those who know me already, you know I can't just follow a pattern - I add, I modify, I adjust with ease! I "Melissa-fy it!"
So while I am sewing, I am also painting our closet and bathroom, preparing Mikayla's 6th Birthday party (yes - purple butterfly party), planning our school year (luckily I got Seton's curriculum to start from) , delivering the homeschool group's yearbooks, and a list of about 40 other things! I am one busy momma this month!
