Sew Night With Kass - Twirly Girly Skirt

It's been a while since I showed you some of what Kassidy and I have been up to on our "Wednesday Sew Night" - so here is just one of the projects that we have made and I promise to show you even more later!
Here is Kassidy stitching away happily...
and pinning away happily...

And then it's time for me to add the trim...



The cutest little pink pom-pom trim we found at JoAnns. Just in case you want to know- the trim came first, and then we picked fabric to go with the trim from Material Girls. It's kinda like finding a dress to go with the earrings, don't ya think?


And the final project - the cutest little twirly skirt to go with the trim, both in the perfect pink.





Here is the pattern that we used. It was really simple, fast and cute - those are the three requirements that we have for any project to be on our list of things to do for our Sew Night together.
For sure we will be making more of these and I will show them to you then.


I wanted to show you the pins that Kassidy uses. They are extra long with a bigger head which makes them easier for her to handle, and besides they're adorable and come in cute pearly-bright colors.
My friend Linda no blog gave me a few of them in a pincushion that she gave me a while back, and when Kass saw them she made me call Linda right away to see where she got them.
They came from JoAnns so of course we had to go get several packages. They really are cute and useful and look very happy in the pincushions that are in my studio!


And here's my curly girly (thats what her Dad calls her) in her twirly skirt...do you like it?

Lovely skirt.
It is so nice to have a little one that enjoys sewing early on. IT will pay off for her a trillion ways!

I see a future designer in the making. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
She will have such wonderful memories of the two of you planning, designing, and sewing together. And the skirt is as cute as can be.

Very cute picture of Kassidy wearing her skirt. I love it! She looks great in pink and the pom poms make the skirt extra twirly looking.

She did such a wonderful job! Definitely a life-long sewer. It brings back so many memories...I started sewing my own clothes when I was 10 and my Mom signed me up for a sewing class from Singer's at the mall...Kassidy is so much luckier to have you for her teacher!

I think the skirt is just plain adorable, and I love the pom-poms on the bottom. My mother taught me how to sew when I was 12 and now that she is gone, I wish I had taken the time through the years to thank her for teaching me. I still sew today not so much for myself, but I do quilt.

What a cute project! I bet Kass was in seventh heaven creating something she could wear and will get a ton of compliments on!
