A New Skirt for the First Day

Today was my little sunshine girl's first day of preschool.  This girl is happy all the time.  Seriously.  She is such a joy.  She loves life, and she brings happiness to all around her. 

I made her a new little skirt for her first day.   You can't really see and admire the fabric in this picture, but it is a sweet little Japanese print I have been saving for two years now with a mother duck and her little ducklings.  Felicity has appropriately dubbed it The Duckie Skirt.  The pattern for the skirt came from the book Little Girls, Big Style, and it is the On The Border Skirt.  I have used this book several times. I think I have only blogged about this one other skirt.  I don't why I never posted the other things I have made.  I guess I was lazy. ;0)  Anyways, it is a great book for cute and quick little clothes.  

I also made her that gray bow in her hair.  I am a horrible bow maker.  I haphazardly made a bow and hot glued it on a hair clip.  I see all these moms making all these amazing bows for their girls' hair.  I need to get me some bow lessons.

Sisterly love.

She happily skipped her way to school and found her seat for painting.  Gave me a quick wave good bye and that was that.
