Back to school time

Well it's that time of year again.
And we had the big back pack dillemma.
Usually have to buy a couple a year because
the zippers break.
So I decided to make messenger bags.
Didn't have a pattern.
I was unsure of the size they should be.
But at least the size of a back pack.
So this is the results!

We also had a birthday this past week.
Ethany turned 8.
Chocolate cupcakes with green icing
and sparklers.

And Yet Another Skort

Are you tired of seeing skorts yet?
Rebecca, my 8 yr old granddaughter was over yesterday.
She liked the print fabric and wanted a top made out of it.
I asked if she wanted a matching skort.
Well yes, of course!!

The shorts underneath

The back elastic.

Are we having fun yet?

Another Skort

Sewing for school time.
Here is another skort made of chambray cotton from my stash
The ruffle and shorts underneath are a poly/cotton
from my stash.
I am trying very hard to use only stash fabric.
Earlier this week I was in the fabric store and saw
the cutest lady bug prints.
I am sorry to say it is still in the store!!

And I made a top to match.
