I know we've all been given talents and gifts, and that we're supposed to use our talents for blessing the lives of others. I've often wondered exactly how I can use my sewing talent to bless others. I may have found a bit of the answer today. Elizabeth and liZ over at Simple Simon & Co are hosting a month long series entitled "Skirting the Issue". It's a month of easy skirt tutorials that can be used to make skirts for girls who are in the foster care system, girls who may not have much and very well may feel like nobody cares about them at times. Elizabeth and liZ are encouraging people to use these tutorials to make skirts to donate for these girls. A brilliant idea. You can get more details over there. Today I'm sharing a twist on my Coastal Curtsy Skirt for girls little to big, go there for the tutorial.
I hope that some little girls are going to feel loved and pretty!
