Mermaid Water bottles
I sewed up this cute little skirt by folding half a yard in half, running a seam up the side, a hem along the bottom and shirring 5 lines at the top. Maya loves Mermaids and when she saw it she said "Oooo Mermaid Dress!" I figure I better sew as much as possible before she decides she'd rather dress like a Goth or Republican or something.
AOP Lanterns
We've been visiting the Aquarium a lot recently. Mostly it's been crazy busy.
So that's where the term Feeding Frenzy comes from!
As in what you might call a "feeding frenzy."

I released my Wee Baby Socks pattern yesterday after much knitting and lots of angst. It really came together with the help of some savvy test knitters.
No Goths, Republicans, Scuba divers or test knitters were harmed in the making of this post. Thank you.

    Wow! That’s a skirt even I could sew….

    But that skirt is soooo adorable. Maya too. Maybe she’ll dress like a Goth Republican? And now I’m trying to picture that.

    I’m sure you could still sew something for a Goth. But a Republican? Perish the thought!
    And please, you must stop showing the Wee Baby Socks. You are using up the entire SoCal supply of cute already! Now the entire U.S., possibly the world is in danger! ;)

    I don’t know…sewing goth clothes is kind of fun too. Republican, not so much.

    Darn. It told me the first comment wasn’t allowable, so I reposted (apparently with less enthusiasm, lol) and now there are two…

    Oh, that’s funny. And the skirt and Maya are adorable. Those baby socks are my favorite colors, and my niece just had a baby this week. Hmm…

    Omigod, you crack me up. A parent who fears their child will dress like a Republican. It made me laugh—thanks. :)
