Challenge #2- Checkers
The game for the challenge this week is Checkers! Who doesn't remember playing that game with your family? I already love black and red, so this was a pretty fun challenge for me. I went to the Gathering Place Thursday after I had gone to the Dr., and fell in love with this fabric. I could make all kinds of things with it, but decided to make a skirt for Ellie since we're celebrating her birthday with the Jones' today. I thought it turned out way cute.
Then Danelle asked if I could make one for her doll too, so they would match!
This is actually the doll skirt. Below is the headband I made for the doll too.
And Ellie's headband. Not sure she'll ever wear it, but maybe since the doll has one....
Here are the two- side by side. Just a little difference.
Danelle thought it would look cute to have an eyelet slip under the skirt to make it stand out a little. I had some eyelet, so I made one. Then I had some chiffion that came off some formal...mom gave it to me...so I put that on top of it to make it stand out a little more.
This morning I made a slip for the doll skirt too. Couldn't let her go without...
