The Easiest Re-fashion EVER!!!

You know when you have one of those weeks???  The ones where the kids each wake you up about 100 times a night, there are no clean clothes, and the only thing you feel like making for dinner is pizza.  The ones where you wake up in the morning with no covers on three square inches of your bed and look over too see your kids all piled up between you and your husband.  The ones where you contemplate running away, but it just seems like it would take more energy than you have.  Yeah....well multiply that by 10 and that about sums up the way I have felt this week. 

THEN by some miracle sent from above, the stars aligned and the kids took a nap AT THE SAME TIME.   I should have made a dent in the dirty clothes mountain or cleaned the sticky goo off of my kitchen floor OR taken a nap....but I decided to sew.  Crazy I KNOW!!! 
I needed something simple and mindless AND with instant payoff.  I chose to dig out my re-purpose box and see what popped out at me.  I have had THIS
shirt around since I was PREGNANT with over 3 years.  I thought it had potential, but never quite knew what to make of it.  I decided to go easy and make a simple skirt.  SOOOOO I cut off the bottom below the waist, added an elastic waist and SMILED!!!!
I KNEW Emersyn was going to like it.  WHY????  Because it would look great with a pair of cowgirl boots.....and this girl LOVES her cowboy boots!!!

I don't know if it is because they are pink or because they are adorable or if it is because they tap when she walks, but SHE LOVES HER BOOTS!! 

So we both got what we wanted.  She got a cute comfy cowgirl skirt and I got 1 hour to myself with no crying, pooping, or BUT WHY'S. 

And in my opinion a twirly girly skirt is about as good as it gets.  Maybe even a little therapeutic :)
