After I followed the directions on the blog for cutting out the skirt pieces, I called DaughterStitches to find out how long to make the skirt and how big around the waist should be. I had to cut off more than half the length or this skirt would have been dragging on the floor!
I especially loved the directions for the flowers that were given on Tea Rose Home. By using the right side of the blue jeans, the wrong side, and the part underneath the pocket, I was able to have three different colors of blue for the three flowers I put on the skirt.
I sewed them together just a little ways from the edge, so that they would fray when I washed the skirt.
And here is a cute little label I put inside, "Grandma Made It," alongside an extra, single flower.
(SisterStitches gave me these labels--aren't they fun!?!)
This marks my 100th blog post! Woo-hoo!! Wasn't sure I could last this long, but it's been almost a year now. So glad I have this blog. It's a lot of fun.
