Weekend sewing


Lucky for my girly sewing needs, we have another niece having a birthday this month. 


I completely winged (wung?) it on this one...no pattern, and only a vague memory of shirring.   


This was a great little project.  The fabric is from an upcycled sheet and the buttons are from my stash of new and vintage.  Start to finish, I think it only took me an hour...if we ever have a little girl, she'll have a closet full of these!

  
Happy Monday, friends!
