|Big Sis and PG|
The only thing that might trump it is TWO little girls in coordinating skirts. When we were invited to spend a weekend with some friends celebrating PG's 2nd birthday, I knew I wanted to put together something that would be simple, homemade, and cute. Oh, and quick. I had three days.
Enter this pattern. Pretty sure I found it on Pinterest.
I picked up fabric remnants on clearance at Hobby Lobby (on a recent day trip there with my friend the Southern Craft Queen) and cut them into strips ranging from 3 1/2 inches to 6 1/2 inches. For one skirt, I pieced together four strips to make a block approximately 16"x44". I cut this in half to end up with two pieces 16"x22". This is just slightly smaller than the average size of a fat quarter, and what I started with for the beginning of the pattern.
I followed the pattern, omitting the ribbon trim. I just didn't feel like I needed it, given the pieced fabrics.
The skirts are essentially the same size, but I inverted the fabrics to make them look different. PG (on the right) has a green strip above the striped, but you don't see it because of her shirt.
There are a few more details of PG's P-themed Party (pretzels! pool! pizza! pineapple! puzzles! paint!) here. See if you can spot me rockin' my new short haircut ...
