playskirt




I love playskirts...simple and breezy, perfect for a day of toddler play. My mom is always sending me beautiful pieces of fabric from the quilt shop she works at...this particular piece was destined to be sewn into a playskirt from the moment I saw it. Monkeys, pink elephants, toucans and tigers...oh yes!


There is just something incredibly gratifying about making an article of clothing for your babe.

Thanks for your compliments on the Gift! :)

I've been writing seriously since college. I've had a few bites from agents, but nothing serious yet. For awhile I was pretty burned out and just writing for my blog, but I'm thinking of submitting again...My style just isn't real commercial, you know?
