I brought out my all time favorite pattern again to make a summer dress for my youngest daughter. This time I chose a turqoise fabric with butterflies and birds on it and red for the circle skirt underneath. Red and turqoise is my favorite color combo's.

I think of myself as someone who is not a supertalent at sewing or crocheting or anything else related to crafting, but I can sew a pretty skirt for my girls or crochet a nice baby blanket for a friend who has just delivered, if the pattern isn't too complicated.

I have two larger projects on the sewing table that I will finish soon and will show you here (skirt and top), and I'm still busy crocheting a baby blanket that turns out to take infinite time, but inbetween I made this little skirt for my youngest daughter, so I still have the satisfaction of a Finished Project:
The blue fabric has tiny strawberries on it. Love that!

I made this about five years ago, when my oldest daughter was just six months old. I had totally forgotten about this play mat, but I still love it!
