Peek of the Week - June 3, 2011

It's Friday. Time for a Peek!

Our Friday feature - the Peek of the Week - is all about you! I want to hear (and share with my readers) what wowed you this week. It could be a cool finished project, a work in progress, a personal accomplishment, a cute kid moment, or something that surprised you.

If we could peek into your week - what would you want to show us?

Each week I'll share my Peek of the Week to get the ball rolling, and invite you to link to your own blog posts about your Peek of the Week. I know y'all are up to cool stuff - we wanna see it!

Here's my peek:
I'm super excited (and totally shocked) about this peek.

A few weeks back I got a request from one of my besties. She wanted to take advantage of her sweet daughter's young age, and do the dorky matching this while she's too young to protest (I'm sure I'll be doing it too with lil' sis. Who are we kidding).
So she asked me to make matching skirts for them. I was super excited about such a fun project, but truth be told, I'm scared of grown-up clothes. But I knew she's such a good friend and close by (easier to have more fittings), that I could take on the challenge.
So she and I stole away to Fabric Bliss one day to pick out snazzy fabrics for the endeavor. I LOVE what she chose.
And I got to work.
And whadya know? They're freakin' awesome! I started with a pattern, but by about step two I just went off on my own. The mama's skirt is lined, adorable, and fits to a tee (seriously shocked).
I didn't even reference a pattern when making sweet pea's little skirt. This is why I love children's clothes! They're so forgiving. I just eyeballed everything and went to town cutting and sewing and it's crazy cute.

So, don't expect to see too many adult piece showing up in my shop. They're still scary to me since they need to, ya know, fit. But I'm thrilled with how these turned out and I think these lovely ladies look super cute!

Now it's your turn! Show us your peek!
Here's how it works:
1. Each Friday I'll post my peek of the week, and give you space to link us up to yours.
