What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

The OTHER pillowcase skirt

Remember this pillowcase?

It is a pillowcase no longer.

This was the OTHER pillowcase skirt I attempted. This is also Corynn's favorite. I am almost CERTAIN it is because it is so long and she feels like a lady in it.

But the gorgeous blooms and color combination can't hurt either.

Sometimes the grown-upish-ness of my girl surprises me, especially when it is glaringly obvious in a photograph.

But then~there is always this side of her and that always makes me feel better....

You are becoming quite the seamstress.. Can I be honest? One more thing to be jealous about! :)

Love the skirts, they turned out wonderfully!

This fabric is really beautiful, it is so pretty and feminine...no wonder Corynn loves it.

Great job on the tutorial, too. I still haven't found any pillowcases as pretty as the ones I've seen made up, but I'm still looking.

I wanted to tell you that I started another blog, Something Beautiful, at http://littlepatchofheaven2.blogspot.com where I'm posting some of my creative endeavors, if you want to check it out.

Linds~ actually, this was the first skirt I tried to replicate so I maed the wedges but because their were so few it looked like I COULD have just hemmed the bottom and made a wait for the same effect.

Cloth diapering. Ah, the big question.

I am VERY schizophrenic when it comes to cloth diapering. Short answer is no. But there are times when I put them on too. I only have about two or three that I got at yard sales though.
