There have been a couple of sewing projects that I have wanted to do for the past couple of months, but never got around to doing. One was a skirt for me. I had found a free tutorial on the internet for how to make one using a skirt that you already have. The other project was some ties for the boys, also a free pattern and instructions that I found on the internet. I was just waiting to get some material. So when I received a 50% off coupon in the mail for JoAnne (a fabric/craft store), I decided now would be a good time to make the skirt.
When I finished the skirt and realized that I had a fair amount of material left, I decided that I would try making the little boys some ties. I am pleased with how everything turned out, especially it being my first time making these things. Keagan, Deker and I wore our new things to church. Here are some pictures we took before we left.
For those of you that are interested, here are the links for the patterns I used. For my skirt I used the tutorial on V & Co. for her Tablecloth Skirt. Although, I didn't have a tablecloth so I just used fabric. For the boys' ties I used the pattern and instructions from The Purl Bee for Little Boys Ties. I did make quite a few changes to the ties I made to make them more kid friendly and I sewed all of it with a machine.
