A Flirty Skirty

On the weekend I whipped up this little navy blue skirt for Phoebe. I wanted to embellish it so I got out the bedazzler and made it all sparkly. No I didn't! I don't have a bedazzler. Just wanted to see if you actually read these posts! No, really I wanted to stitch some goodness into it, so this is what I've done so far.

Stitching is very therapeutic, the possibilities for design are endless - well, if your brain allows it! I love starting something and watching it evolve, change and continue for as long as you desire.
I'm not sure were I'm headed with this, but you can see from the middle shot that I had to have that Liberty birdy in there. I'll probably add some branches and flowers as well. Phoebe should like the butterfly or flies as she calls them.

Oh yes - Phoebs has seen and don't like it! Runs from me and kicks and screams. She's going to be one of those kids that detests homemade clothing.
