My sister-in-law gave me some fabric last week, and I couldn't help messing around with it. I'm a sucker for Mary Engelbreit. The skirt is just two rectangles sewn together, with an elastic waistband. I'm not a big fan of elastic on skirt waistbands because they pouf out so much. But when your munchkins grow into a new size every few months, it works.
The little bag is a miniature version of a tote from Amy Karol's Bend the Rules sewing book. I think I've mentioned in a previous post that I love this book, but there is always some essential detail left out in the directions. So even though it is a brilliantly simple tote pattern, I had to rip it out so that the straps didn't end up INSIDE the bag. Oops! I forgive you Amy.
