easter 2011

I made two dresses for easter. Since it was a last-minute rush idea that I had on thursday, I had to work with what I had on hand.    


can you see that someone was thrilled with her dress?

litle girl's denim (jeans)skirt - free tutorials

I have a thing for denim skirts. I dont wear them anymore, but i love looking at different styles.  Now that summer is here and  ponnu has outgrown  her winter jeans, we need some skirts..  So, as usual, i prowled the net for some inspiration.

I had seen lots of denim jeans-to skirt conversions, but they all had this triangle-in-the-middle design like this  that i did not like.
Now suddenly, i have options! (click on the picture to take you to the tutorial..)

all of these require me to cut up the jeans. i'm happy about that...  i felt so bad to hang on to my  old jeans that i'll never fit into anymore (sniff) Now they have a purpose! (and my hubs will be happy if I free up the shelf space!)

Now to choose which one... i will have to ask the diva herself..

Like some people adore Anthropologie, I have a top ten of sites that make me want to copy everything on the site. #5 is Chasing fireflies .see if you like something there:

I cannot think of ever paying that much for clothes that will be outgrow in six months, so i will have to recreate them. however, my kids have too many clothes as is. wonder how will i ever resist making these..
