Tina + Me = A Winning Combination

My friend Tina posted a picture of a skirt she had made for her daughter Maryn a little while ago. Of course, I don't know how to sew (I've sewn a few things, but not in many years and I've never sewn anything you can wear--successfully sewn anything you can wear that is.). So, I had to tell Tina that I was in love with the skirt she had made and told her I wish she lived closer, so she could help me to sew such a cute skirt for my own daughter.


Tina, being the amazing friend that she is, emailed me and told me if I'd pick out some fabric and mail it to her, she'd send me back a completed skirt.


How could I pass up such an offer?


The hardest part for me was picking out the material. The first fabric that caught my eye was red and it was so cute. I tried and tried to get a winning combination going on, but it was not happening. Once I switched to blue combos it all came together. Then, I was really on a roll, so I picked out enough fabric for another skirt as well. Doesn't that show you what a good friend Tina is?

Anyway, here they are! SOOOO CUTE!

They look so great on her- much better than the lame pics on my site! (I still can't believe she has a 20 inch waist!)

Very cute. . . I'm think you might be inspiring me with a project Audrey. Sorry we missed you and I hope that Owen feels better soon! Something really nasty is going around and I hope we don't get it!

Jason: "Holy Cow, she is looking identical to Audrey."

She's always had such strong features of you and Derek, but I don't know... I'm starting to lean toward Jason now.

Love the skirts! Wish I could sew better (or had a good friend who could sew one for me...) I love the fabrics you picked out!
