I finished the 5th block in my own personal BOM for 2013, The Night Before Christmas by Bunny Hill. This is a very big block, but so far I have managed to finish one each month. I was finishing up the embroidery work on May 31st.
I made new skirts for my sisterly trio of granddaughters. They are made from the leftovers fabrics, all from Bonnie and Camille, that I used for their quilts Simplicity #2356 and multiple sizing was a great choice with tiers and bands of different fabric.
The waistbands have elastic, but I also went with a decorative bow topped with a decorative button.
There was a different button color for each skirt, all part of a large card of buttons all different but coordinating that I purchased a few years back.
I would show you a picture of the girls wearing them, but some were not so willing having been in the pool for the afternoon.
