Baby Jean Skirt

This sweet little number was made from the tutorial on KoJo Designs, (the tutorial was actually a guest post from Homemade By Jill, another really great blog) this skirt is a great way to reuse old jeans and tee shirts.
This one is a 3 to 6 month size. I can't wait to scale it up to the Bug's size!  Heaven knows I have enough old jeans and tees to play around with this a bit (thanks Honey)!
I love the little pleats. Such a grown up, sophisticated look for a little lady.
I added the ribbon hem and I love the detail it adds to an otherwise simple skirt.  I first learned this technique on the Oliver & S Lazy Days Skirt and I love how simple and pretty it is.
And this is my first attempt at a 402 label using another tutorial at KoJo. Obviously, I need to get a nicer fabric marker but I like the general concept. I think the random messy stitching around it is fun, I just need to make the painted numbers more neatly.  I'm not sure if I was just in too much of a hurry or if my paint pen was sub-par but for now, I'm blaming the pen.

At any rate, I like the idea of making my own tags as I need them since I've yet to find pre-made tags that I love and I have a hard time buying in the quantities so many tag makers require anyway.

So thanks for the tutorials KoJo Designs! 

Little known fact: KoJo designed Michelle's wedding invitations.
Who knew?
It truly is a small world after all.
