Ta-Da!

It took less than 1 and 1/2 hours!
This is called Oliver + s Lazy Days Skirt (link).
This one is actually Jaeden's but she was sleeping when I finished it, and so I let the "night owl" model it for pictures... isn't that cute!? It's a little long for Joy, but it will fit Jaeden just fine.
I can't wait to finish the rest... and the best thing, it only took 1/2 of a yard to make! I have enough material left to make Joy a blue one of her own :) And will have enough of the pink to make one for Jaeden too. I think I have to take Joy's shirts back and get her smaller ones, though.
Now to find two cute little girls that might like the other two brown ones that I can get out of my swatch :)

You rock! It's really cute, and I'm really impressed at how you finished your project (I have lots of crafty intentions -- projects that never even get started).

It turned out SO CUTE! I am impressed. The shirts and fabric from your earlier post are adorable also. What a great find!

Thanks for the links you sent. I found etsy about a year ago and sometimes just go there to look for inspiration. I LOVE browsing that website.
