Cambria's Easter Skirt . . . LOL

I know it's way past Easter, but I thought you could all use a good laugh today, so I'm going to show you the Easter skirt I made my granddaughter, Cambria.  I originally posted about the fabric and pattern here.

Well here is the skirt.  Isn't it cute???  I really like how it turned out, especially since I've never sewn clothes before!!!

I love the colors and prints in this fabric!  Just perfect for this little skirt!  Well now let me show you something that isn't so perfect . . .

Look how big this "little" skirt turned out to be!  LOL!!!  :o)  I was trying to make this a surprise for my granddaughter and daughter so I just guessed what the waist and length should be!!!  I was the one who was surprised when she put it on!  It's a couple of inches too big around the waist and, obviously, several inches too long!  Ha!!!  :o)  We all cracked up when she put it on and we saw how big it was!!!  :o)  She had fun parading around showing it off and making us laugh!  Great memories!!!

I guess the positive side to all of this is I won't have to make her an Easter skirt in two or three or four years!  See . . . I didn't mess up . . . I'm just really prepared!  :o)


Loving My Postman

Well, not loving the Postman, just loving what he brought today!

I won this darling chef's hat and gift card to Papa Murphy's Pizza from Yumm Yumz By Patticakes!  Isn't this the cutest thing ever?!?!?  :o)

Here's a close up of the chef's hat!  So cute!

My granddaughter, Cambria, had to try it on for size - fits perfect because there is velcro on the back so you can adjust it!!!  :o)  She's going to love this hat when cooking with Grandma (me!) and I'm going to love the gift card!!!  :o)

OK . . . You've gotta check this out!  Look at the comment Pauline from Quilt -n- Queen posted on Yumm Yumz By Patticakes blog the day of the giveaway . . .

Yes...your chef hat and my tea toweling apron would make a great gift set. Great timing of our tutorials...have a wonderful day.

You're not going to believe this, but I won the "gift set" she was joking about!  What are the odds?!?!?  So, yes, I also won this incredible fabric from Pauline at Quilt -n- Queen!

Check out the darling tea toweling apron I get to make using this great tutorial here!

I LOVE IT!  I wonder if I'll look that skinny wearing my apron when it's done!  LOL!!!  :o)  I'm so excited to make this!  I'm sure it'll help all my meals taste better!  :o)

Thank you so much for these fun gifts!  :o)
