I have found the best skirt tutorials on pinterest! The circle skirt is by far my favorite. It is so fast and looks so cute on my girls. I followed this tutorial on Made's blog. With the extra fabric, I made flower hair ties to match. This is one of my favorite skirts that I made. I need to get some better pictures, but this will do for now.

For Dr. Seuss day this year (yes, it was a while ago), my daughter needed a costume. I didn't want to spend much money on it and we decided to do Thing 1. I got some red sweat pants and a red shirt, cut out a white felt circle and wrote "Thing 1" on it, and then worked on her wig. I just bought some bright blue yarn, crocheted a kind of headband/beanie type thing to fit her head, and then tied a bunch of blue yarn "hair" to it. I thought she looked cute, though she was embarassed to wear the wig at school, so it didn't stay on for very long.
I needed a quick and easy gift for a nephew's baptism, so I found this tutorial on the Rachel Berry Blog. So I whipped up two (I have a neice who will need one soon!) and they turned out great! I attached the poem below and tied it up with a ribbon. Easy as pie!
