Bears and Honey

I saw this fabric at a thrift store and HAD to have it. If I was smart enough to take a nice picture of the pattern, then I would have, but obviously I'm not, so......(wow! that was a pretty bad run-on sentence). There wasn't much of the fabric, but that is only a minor detail. YOU CAN'T STOP FATE!
Then my mom gave me an old velvet skirt she had and no longer wanted (there's fate again). I decided to make some skirts for the girls and used the velvet underneath and made a big bow out of it. I like it when embellishments are big....very big.
I had them wear it to church (of course I didn't take pictures---again), and found that I had to make a quick adjustment before leaving the house. See, I thought that I could accurately guess what Pumpkin's waist size was (she was asleep and I was getting quite a bit done). Long story short, I had to cut open the skirt, tightened the elastic, and did a little baste stitch to keep it closed. But...it still turned out okay...phew! We were only an hour late for church. HAHA Just kidding....we were on time.
