It isn't summer here yet--at least not weather wise. Two weeks after school has let out and we haven't been able to go to our public pools yet due to rain and cool weather. Overcast and 61 degrees today. Not summer! The kids are anxious and ready to revolt. The only saving factor has been swimming lessons--indoors. We have 2 more days of those and then the weather had better cooperate or I may be looking for year round school to enroll my children in.
For you quilters who can't throw away even the slightest scrap of fabric I can empathize. I have a hard time tossing swimsuit fabric when I know there is enough to make a little suit. And I don't have little little people at my house anymore. So I try not keep if I can help it.
However, when I finished some suits for an order a few weeks ago I couldn't toss the cute polka-dot material that was left. Luckily I had some matching pink and made the little cute suit below. First time I've made this suit in 2-toned. I like that it looks like a faux tankini.
