But I can show off the second sewing project started yesterday. I went garage shopping. Right around the corner of my kitchen. Just two steps away. And found a pair of jeans. Almost still perfect for Chiara just too short and the best part they were even FREE. Of course. It was my own garage.
After digging in some old BURDA kids sewing magazine a few days ago I sew a few pages about recycling old clothes. So we took the jeans, cut it off, about knee lenght and opened up the seams between the legs to convert it in a skirt. We added some colorful batik fabric in the front and the back plus a little belt and voila. Chiara is all happy with her new scrappy jeans skirt which she insist on wearing to school tomorrow. The skirt is not perfect, but she is happy.
P.S. I am gald I got to sew but it's even better that Chiara is all happy about the skirt and I am still smiling about it now and remmebering that I made a Bella a dress out of this batic fabric when Chiara was just born.
This little sneak came running into the picture all the time and just had a blast in the hallway being goofy and silly. But that is not really anything new.
