Here they are before, as pretty curtains.
And well under an hour later a little Christmas skirt has been made. Very simple, my kind of style.
And as the curtain is lined, the skirt has a really sweet fullness to it and is lovely and warm for Miss. Poppins on these cold winter days.
And here she is having some fun wearing it....
And as a special Christmas treat for you all, a rare glimpse of the beautiful Miss. Poppins herself. May I present to you my lovely little treasure :)
So rewarding to see her like it too. Normally I treat the children to a little outfit to wear on Christmas Day. It has been a little tradition since I had Miss. Poppins. Though now, I think I am going to make it a new tradition to MAKE them something to wear. Nothing gives me greater satisfaction than seeing one of my children wear something handmade that has been made from their own Mothers hands. Miss. Poppins' Christmas skirt shall indeed be worn on Christmas Day, and not a penny cost. Sheer Joy.
Now to get a crack on with Master P, Mmmmmm wonder what delightful fabric I shall find for him in my little stash, hope he likes pink and flowers ;)
Merry Christmas one and all.
