Pretty Pleats

Love the way this skirt turned out. The inspiration was this post from Mme ZsaZsa.  I great project that would be great big or small and does not require a pattern. We simply doubled the width of her waist and  made 8 pleats of 2 inches each, but really you could play around with the width and the frequency of them.  Our young sewista did a great job, especially with the zipper.

We had a little extra time on our hands so we quickly stitched up this little basket.  As a last minute idea we decided to stitch some letter beads on.  Don’t know why I never used these to sew on projects before.  Love it.
