OK - I am really a terrible seamstress, I get super excited about sewing something and stuff rarely turns out how I envision it, but I had this box full of vintage sheets and pillow cases, the sewing machine has been sitting out on the table for 2 weeks (from when I fixed my sons shirt) I finally said "f*ck it, im gonna sew something". So for my baby girl (OK she's 5, not a baby anymore), I made her this one

Very simple, even I knew I could handle this, just cut the closed end of the pillow case off as long as she wanted it, sewed a seem at the top, ran elasctic, sewed shut (of course I had to buy her a new shirt to go with it)
For her sister I made this one:

(I made a matching hair scarf too, just didnt get a pic) same thing, just fitted the elastic a different size

Then for me I made this one:

ignore my fattiness, I think my inner hippie is starting to come out (plan on wearing it to see the String Cheese Incident next month)
and then I whiped up this one:

I even did so good and sewed some rick-rack around the bottom edge.

I think you and your girls all look gorgeous and you did a great job on the skirts! I'm having some serious feelings of jealousy toward your lunchbox collection as well!
