i havenít decided which. Smiley
 let me start by saying i have never made clothes. ever. not even in grade 7 home ec when i was supposed to.

so in preparation for a personal swap i decided to bust out a little girl version of something i will try to make full sized later. unfortunately i donít have a little girl to measure or model.  Wink



but i do have my botís stuffed rabbit.
now imagine a  3 year old twirling on a nice summery day

here it is without the rabbit... i think it will be huge on the wee one i made it for.  her momma makes tiny kids. but sheíll grow.



and i learned some stuff along the way... like take more time when pinning and wait for the promised tutorial before barging away...

so... insane... or awesome?

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

Awesome, definitely! These patchwork skirts are a pain to make - even on a small scale.

Awesome!
I thought it was part of the rabbit at first. I know my little niece would love it. The colours go together just right. You've also given me a superb idea for her next present though: she'd love a teddy with a bright, twirlable patchwork skirt.
