"Sew Matchy-Matchy"

I've had this adorable apple & pear fabric I've been dying to use in a cute way. After seeing my friend use this same fabric on a super cute diaper cover for her daughter, I was tempted to do the same (and I still might with the leftovers), but was feeling sort of lazy and decided to do this instead:

The skirt waistbands are made from an old cotton knit t-shirt of mine (the sort you can purchase from Hobby Lobby). The boys shirts had staining down the center (messy eaters, I tell you!) and so these little faux ties made the perfect cover-up. I know it may seem a little feminine a fabric for a boy, but I know our boys can pull off these cute tie tees. Merikalyn loves her skirt, and Evangeline seemed to like hers as well.... although she was less enthused about the little cap I made.

Later I made two hairbows.... one for me and one for Merikalyn. I'm still considering adding a bit of this fabric to a t-shirt or something for myself.. but I haven't decided what yet.

Photos of the kids in their super cute matchy-matchiness to come!
