Sewing to Summer Challenge: Month 1

 
I have decided to join up with Milk & Honey Mommy and sew my way to summer! I have been really busy with homeschooling and helping create LMCA. Sewing has really taken a backseat in my life. I haven't even reopened my etsy shop since closing it for Christmas. I am hoping this little challenge will motivate me to rediscover my love of sewing.
 
For the month of February I mostly worked on a birthday quilt for Malcolm. SInce it's not even close to being finished you'll have to wait to see it. But I did manage to create three other items just for fun.
 
 
This skirt is for me. I think it turned out cute. I haven't tried it on yet, so I hope it fits. If it doesn't it'll be listed on etsy.
 
 
I love the brightness of these fabrics. I created this skirt for etsy.
 
 
This skirt is for Margie. I think it turned out perfectly! I have enought fabric left that I think I can do a custom-order listng on etsy for one.
 
I was going to do a before and after photo of my fabric cabinet, but all these skirts were made from fabric I have been carrying around in my sewing bag, so my cabinet looks exactly the same. My sewing back is a lot lighter now though!
