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 Emersyn....so 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 :)
