Halloween Skirts

Madison was begging, in an Oliver Twist kind of fashion, for "More Skirts, Please?"   In an effort to give the girl what she wants and to ensure my dear singer that it is my only true love, I made these skirts yesterday. 

To begin with they looked something like this...

A little snip, a little tuck, a little hummm, hummm, hummm (and hopefully no kA-chUnck) of the sewing machine...Then they turned into this...

I actually wasn't going to make these til the weekend, but I sat straight up in bed, right about 5:30am, wide awake.  What is a girl to do, but get up and sew!!!  Besides, then they could be worn when we went BOWLING!!!

And what do you do with them when you are tired of wearing them as skirts?
You use them as mops :0)


Oh, and one more thing I got done...(sorry too lazy to take the ribbon off and take it out of the bag for my after-thought photo)
