Mine and Alyssa's new skirt

My poor little Alyssa was sick this week with pneumonia.  This meant we spent a lot of time at home!  She was very clingy most of the week and I wasn't able to get much done but towards the end of the week she was doing better and I decided to tackle a new sewing project!

I had a whole bunch of a beautiful light brown corduroy fabric that I needed to do something with.  I have been doing a lot of looking online lately for sewing ideas and sewing patterns and stuff and found some to work for this corduroy!

I was really happy with the results!  And I was super happy that Alyssa was doing well enough to go to church this morning so we could show off our new skirts!!

I got the idea for my skirt at this link and for Alyssa's skirt at this link.  I really really liked the flowers that were on the skirt at the link for Alyssa's skirt and thought they would be fun to put on both of our skirts!  (In fact that website has quite a few ideas that I want to try out!)  I also made Alyssa a matching hair bow!!

Here is some pictures of the finished project.
