The 4th of July is celebrated "big" in this town. Each year I have wanted to do something special for the kids and have never done it. Well, this was the year! I made these red, white, and blue skirts for the girls with some fun "celebration" material in them plus a pair of shorts for David. He would NOT wear them until we convinced him that if he wore them to the parade people would throw candy at him. :) What I thought would be an hour's long project took most of the day plus part of the next day! The skirts had a lot of gathering because I made them flare out.
