I am back home, unpacked and busy going through all my photographs. I had a great time but it was a looooong trip! I plan to entertain you all with my favorite photographs from the trip but until I have gone through them you will have to wait. It will be the modern version of someone getting out their screen and slide projector when neighbors come over.
I did manage to get in a little sewing when I was home. I made my favorite niece this colorful two-tiered simple skirt and matching headband. Her mom picked out the beautiful fabric and I can't tell you the designer.
The headband I made by creating a bias tape and then used some of the left over elastic attached to the bottom to give it the necessary stretch.
tutorial here. I didn't exactly follow her steps because I was too lazy to pull them up but I got a super cute skirt.
