Can She Do the Can-Can?

One of my very favorite blogs is Made-- have you seen how adorable Dana is? She is an expert at refashioning (this dress is my favorite!), she won the first round of 'So You Think You are Crafty' and has just released a few patterns. My favorite of which is the Can-Can Skirt. I think perhaps I will be her when I grow up. ;0)



I could go on and on about the fabulous things she has made, but instead I will show you my version (or versionS) of her Can-Can Skirt.













So fun, right? AND Dana has been kind enough to allow me to purchase a limited production license for these skirts. So, if you are dying to have one for your little princess, you can either pop on over to Dana's blog and purchase yourself a pattern, OR I will make one for you! Either way, it is sure to bring a smile to your litte one's face! (I will be listing them in my Etsy store later today or tomorrow.)

And, just to celebrate, why not give one away? The winner can even pick their favorite color!

The rules:

1. First, you need to vote on which color is your favorite (poll located on the left sidebar).

2. Second, leave a comment.

3. If you want a second chance at recieving one of these beautiful skirts, facebook or tweet or blog about it, then leave me a second comment telling me that you did.

4. If you want a third chance, become a follower and leave a third comment telling me you are a follower. (If you are already a follower, leave a comment telling me so!)

That's it! Giveaway will go until Feb 10 at 1 o'clock, MST.
