New Skirt for Ava

Today during naptime I turned an old t-shirt into a super-comfy skirt for Ava. I just traced another skirt I had made for her, centering the design. Then I serged the side seams, serged the bottom edge, and added a casing for elastic. Simple!


Also, instead of throwing away some cheap, ugly wrapping paper I've been wanting to get rid of, my husband unrolled it on the floor for Ava to draw on.... kept her busy for almost an hour!
