I am on a very crafty roll these days! Getting my creative juices going with some dark chocolate usually : P
I decided since I worked out 4 days this week – and I had a toddler wake me up a little earlier than normal – I was going to skip my elliptical session for the day and sew instead. I made the halter dress from the previous post and this super cute toddler skirt.
Here is the sweater I used. I actually really liked this sweater, but it ended up with some very small stains.
First I cut off the arms – I’m going to turn those into leggings for Aidalyn soon.
Then I measured the length of the skirt I wanted from one of Aidalyn’s skirts she wears right now. I added a few inches to the top to have room for the elastic casing.
Here is the elastic I used. I think it is one inch wide.
This is after I have made the elastic casing and pulled through the elastic. I’m about to sew the ends of the elastic together and sew the casing closed.
To cover the stains, I picked out of few pieces of material to applique onto the skirt.
