Jingle Bells


I hope you had a safe and festive holiday.

I wanted to share images of the skirt I made specifically for the occasion.
My sister wondered if I made this skirt out of a tablecloth. I explained that I had added the trim. She asked me, "Okaaay... why?"



I am surprised that after knowing me her whole life, she would have had to ask me that question.
For without the pom-pon trim ( setting them to motion with my legs) how else would I have been able to accompany myself in a very rowdy rendition of jingle bells, all day long?

Many years from now when I am gone, what special memories of me would my children have had to share? When reminiscing this particular Christmas I'm sure it all will be followed by, "I can't believe she did that, she was so... (whispered) sober."

Your skirt is cute for the occasion and very clever! You have a sense of humor and incoporated it into your sewing. I bet you got a lot of terrific comments on it and some people wishes it were their skirt!

You are so funny! I love, love the skirt and it would not be the same without the pom poms. I adore when an outfit makes people stop and think, or comment!

I LOVE it! I like things that are a bit "out there", rather then too tame! You Rock! :D

It wouldn't be the same without the pom poms, for sure. It's a whimsical Christmas skirt....they should be glad you didn't sew actual jingle bells to the edge, LOL!

You have no idea how much I want that skirt! The fabric is gorgeous and it's in my favourite colours, but the pom pom trim is the most wonderful part of all. You're lucky I don't know where you live because I would be stealing it from your washing line!
