Can you Can Can?

It's almost Valentine's Day and you know that I had to come up with something cute! It just so happens that one of my favorite pattern designers (remember the Mia shirt and Cupcake dress?), Chelsea of Pink Fig Designs is having a contest this month! It is for her Nie Nie skirt. I just finished making it for Anna.

In my version, there is lots and lots of eyelet. In fact, if you live around Colby, I'm very sorry but you probably won't be able to find any. I literally bought all of Colby, Goodland and much of Hays out. It takes that much. But, the good news it, you don't have to put the eyelet on. It doesn't even suggest it in the pattern. I also added lots of ribbon and lots of pink, pink, pink for Anna.

Awhile back, Heather Bailey was giving this bag pattern away if you bought a little fabric. Of course, I did! It's called the Smarty Jane Book Bag. Isn't it cute? Anna plans to hold all her Valentines in it. And Easter eggs, the last I heard. If you're thinking about buying it, the bag is super easy and took about an hour to make. It's lined, which I really appreciate.

The Nie Nie skirt is not for the faint of heart. Yards and yards of ruffling. It took me a week and you all know that I'm a one day project girl!

I was going to make one for Emilie, but I think I'll make her something a bit different. Maybe this bag from Prairie Flower Farm.
And this skirt from Dana at MADE.

Thanks for the link!
And oddly enough...the Turkey Skirt has been renamed to: The Can-Can Skirt. The pattern is here in my shop:

I love it! Thankfully, I won't be needing any eyelet anytime soon! (Wait... on second thought...)
You can definitely tell Anna loves her goodies!!
