We learn from Each Other


It is so fun to be influenced by all you talented bloggers out there.  I am continually amazed.  I learn so much from reading your posts and find great joy when I learn that through my random postings that someone has taken something that I have posted and learned from me, too. Last month I posted about making Twirly skirts for my granddaughters here.  Recently, Ginger @ Dimpled Dempseys and a Big Tall Guy let me know that she read my post and has made a darling twirly skirt for her cute little girl from my tutorial on them. This is what she had to say about her experience sewing:

Look what I made!!!

I'm ridiculously proud of myself. I just sewed my first GARMENT a few days ago. Oh, I've started PLENTY of sewing projects. The proof is in a rubbermaid bin in my basement. But, I would always end up hitting a road block or getting frustrated because it wasn't just perfect and would resign myself to finishing it "later". Don't get me wrong. I've made plenty of what most would consider "curtains", but we know those don't really count, now do they?

So, here it is!



I thought making something for Molly to play in would be a safe attempt. That way, I wouldn't feel the "perfection" pressure for her to wear it in public. She has so much fun twirling around in our foyer, which, of course, gives me that "mission accomplished" feeling. It's not perfect, but most couldn't tell. Oh, I'm totally motivated now! Look out world!

Isn't her little girl precious!  And the skirt is adorable.  Love the fabrics! 
Thanks for letting me know about it too, Ginger!  I hope you are able to make many more for your daughter.
I would love to see any projects that have a similar history.  Happy Sewing and Blogging!

Isn't that a wonderful feeling to inspire others to try something? That skirt is absolutely darling!

And congratulations to Ginger and trying something new! Oh, excellent choice in names as well. ;)

Oh I wish I still had a little girl who would let me sew her one of these adorable skirts.... I might just have to make one for myself!

I know you have inspired me in many ways. This skirt is darling and I might be the next person to make one for one of my little granddaughters. Then maybe for the other five!
I was just so proud of Jen today and last week. She is so poised and gracious and a natural on TV. I hope she enjoys a wonderful trip...she has earned one!

I was also going to say and she doesn't fall far from the tree! She comes by it naturally. :)

Holy Cow! I've been linked! Thanks so much for bragging on me. Molly is really enjoying her little skirt. I hope to make one for my niece soon.
