Yesterday I made Grace a Thanksgiving skirt.
Which was a tricky thing since she didn’t want a turkey on her skirt! 🙂
Actually the making of the skirt itself wasn’t tricky…I just followed the steps that I used in THIS TUTORIAL that shows you how to use a plain, dollar store T-shirt to make a skirt in less than 30 minutes.
The tricky part was thinking of an idea for a Thanksgiving skirt that was turkey free..and on a “dark blue” background…and that would still make a certain someone happy.
What we came up with is a nod to the legend of Squanto teaching the Pilgrims to plant their corn with the fish to help it grow.
Not super traditional…but really easy to make! We just cute the shapes out of felt scraps and and I stitched them to the side hem of the skirt.
And all was well.
And all really was well.
Man…I love this kid. It’s been awhile since I have made this cookie something new and it’s been even longer since we’ve gone out taking photos…I’d forgotten how much fun that is. I need to soak this all in while I can, these days won’t last forever. And these days…these are the days…
