I made this on the weekend.  I was thinking of something that was easy and for a child that I thought might be good for a market stall.  So of course I did it in a size that would fit Squid just in case but I did it in a colour that she doesn't usually go for.  Of course she had to wear it and has claimed it for her own.   It needs one minor modification which I will do and it will be perfect this one is a 5-6, I will be doing a 3-4 and 7-8 so let me know what you think.  

Leanne and I headed to the Lollipop Market on Sunday.  It was pumping prams everywhere.  I guess as it was a child and baby market that was going to happen but it was really nuts.  Which is a good thing as I think Adelaide has a bit of a reputation for being a bit slack on the buying front when it comes to these things.  But the difference between this market and quilt show the other week is that it appeals to a younger demographic and it was FREE entry and FREE parking and the people came and they obviously spent up big.  So Hand Craft isn't dead after all which I am really excited about.

They will be a winner! Perfect for summer, the girls will love them, you will just have to make one of everything for your girl first!

Yep love the skirt.

I think handmade never died-it just got buried under cheap asian imports. I'm seeing more and more appreciation for handmade and I think its awesome.
