St. Patty's Day Skirts

If I find a Leprechaun, can I get him to clean my house?  Guess I should probably have done that myself last night but instead I decided to finish making some skits for JuneBug and Tasha to wear to school today.  If I'm going to make clothes, they should have something festive for every holiday, especially one where I have scraps of fabric specifically for the occasion! 

Besides, if I'm using up some of my stash, that will eventually help get the house cleaned up... right?
One skirt is made from strips of fabric too narrow for much else and an old t-shirt for a yoga waist.  The other I used scraps to upcycle a {stashed} denim skirt.  Little scraps and ladybug buttons make great hair clips.  O-man wanted a hair clip too but he doesn't have enough hair to hold it in, so he got to wear a green shirt.

No one pinched my kids today!
Peace be with you,

How cute! If you catch that leprechaun, just be sure to hold onto his cane, then he will do ANYTHING you tell him too! LOL
