Frugal Friday

So excited to post my Frugal Friday this week! I know I have made many of these since acquiring this pattern, but I found the most adorable knit tanks at Plato's Closet. And I thought they would make fabulous twirl skirts. If you have never heard of Plato's Closet it's a more "upscale" thrift store, if you will. They buy and sell gently used brand name clothing. I took my first trip there the other day. I found these...
and although they weren't what I would call a great bargain I had to have them. I loved the Muppet's Party Animal T(Carson asked while Elmo was mad), guitars tank and argyle tank. All together I spent $20, but before you tell me I got ripped off with my purchase of gently used clothing...I made TWO skirts! Carson's is a size 3/4 and Clara's is a size 12-18 months. It is still a bit big, but she will be able to wear it for a while and I think will be great when she starts walking.

We were inspired by our "new" clothes and formed our own band!

Carson is really into singing and performing lately so I thought this ensemble (guitars and party animal)would be perfect for her. And Clara loves and wants whatever her big sister has.
Like this...
and this...Look at that pout face!
It's really starting to become a battle in our house. I'm Sure it's just the beginning!

Carson gave a peace offering. She has quickly learned that you can make Clara happy by giving her something else to distract her from what she wants.
They "kissed" (or high five-d)and made up.
And continued to Rock On!
