African Princesses

So over the weekend I dusted off the sewing machine and actually started some new projects. 
After cleaning the whole basement and sorting through my abundant stacks of fabric I came across the African fabric Nate had brought back for me from Rwanda.  (Best souvenir ever!!)
I wanted each dress to be different so I just started cutting into the fabric and a few hours later I had 3 finished dresses and a skirt for me! 
[my floor length skirt] 
[late night inspiration with my head attire] 
 The girls wanted to put the dresses on right away (that's a good sign I did something right!) so we had an impromptu fashion show with Daddy and Bubba as spectators.

Now we all have a souvenir from Africa!!
I have a lot of fabric left but haven't decided what to do with it yet. 
It will keep until I have another overly ambitious night with nothing else to do.  LOL
