KCWC Day 3

Second verse, nearly the same as the first. :)


Did I mention that we live in California now? Less than an hour from the beach? And that the average summer temp is in the 80's? Sounds perfect for swimming, no? So, I switched up the shirred dress a bit, and made some swimsuit cover-up/towels. You can't tell this here, but those are made of a nice soft beach towel the girls picked out. That's right, all three from one $5.97 towel. Sweet.

Why did I make these, you ask? Well, remember how I've got three kids, and only two arms? Now I don't have to help everyone hold their towels up when we're done swimming (I'll be adding straps to the tops as soon as I wash and dry them to see how much they actually shirr up). And you better believe I'm making one of these for me, too. As soon as it isn't sewing for kids week. :)

PS. The idea came (again!) from MADE. How am I ever going to come up with clever ideas if she keeps coming up with them for me?

You are clever indeed. I am quite proud although I had nothing to do with this skill you've developed.

I saw this one on Made last year too. Make me one Jessie! They are too cute. And I am scared of shirring.

Jessie! You are so talented!!! I love all those cute clothes you are making for your girls.

We miss you guys! It seems like we should be able to get together and play, but then I remember you live 2 states away. I told Sean to write a little note to Corey for his b-day, but I'm guessing he didn't remember. But I thought about sending you a picture, I know it doesn't really count, but we still wish Corey a very happy birthday! Hope you are all loving CA :)
