Skirts for my valentines

I made some quick and easy skirts for the little girls I babysit, and just had to share.  Since I am just learning to sew don't look too closely.  LOL  These were super easy because they are simply t-shirts cut off to make skirts. 
I took two Hobby Lobby t-shirts that were about two sizes too large, and simply cut them off under the arms.  This is awesome because it gives you a perfect bottom seam to start with.  Then you just size it to your kiddo.  Leave a little extra length for the waistband.  I left about 1in because my elastic was pretty thin.  Then I embellished them with some Rick-rack and cut out felt letters.  It was a quick project.  I finished them both in just a couple of hours even with sewing the letters by hand. 

I can't wait to see how adorable they look on Valentine's day.  What are you making for your valentine?

Wow I was featued on Under the table and Dreaming!!!  You can check it out here.  She has tons of fun Valentine ideas.
