Christmas gifts for my kids - part 1: The Apron Skirt

Some time before Christmas I was lucky enough to be allowed to test a new pattern from Little Lizard King.

So I thought this would be an awesome gift for my daughter. Look what I made her!
And I even finished it in time for Christmas! *yay*

I love love love how it turned out! Seriously. I can not believe I made this! :-)

As I was testing the pattern I tried to do it all like you are supposed to do it.
I even ironed all the seams and stuff before sewing. 

I know that you should always do that! But I usually have no time ... and I really hate ironing ...

And it was SO worth it!

My daughter LOVED it! 

Boy, that made me happy. 

With little girls that are completely into pink and princesses ... you just can never be sure ...
(Well, unless you are using only pink fabric with princesses of course ...)

I wanted to do a photo shoot out in the snow. But it was really freezing here. 
And as little bear was sick at Christmas I did not want to let her outside in just a skirt. So instead we had a fun photoshoot on her brand new big-girl bed that she got for Christmas!
So now you know what that weird quilted-looking stuff on the floor is. :-)


 I love her face in this photo!

Well, I guess jumping on the bed is always fun - no matter what you are wearing. 
But see how nice the skirt flies ... :-)

Oh, I think I have not said very much about the actual pattern yet ...  
well, I love it! :-)

How could I not? I mean look what I made with it. 
I made this.
Yeah, I know ... you would think I would be over this by now ... ;-)
Anyway ... the pattern has great photos for each step and is very well explained ... it talks you trough the whole process so easily. It was really great! And Little Lizard King has other cute patterns as well. And some sweet free tutorials on her blog, too. 

So go check out her site and say hello!
