So I tried again, with much less effort for fear of rejection.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar skirt yielded scraps, so we also have The Very Hungry Caterpillar pouches.
V is not any more thrilled with this skirt than she was with the original outfit, but two teachers at her daycare liked it enough to request aprons. So I made them. Now we're all caterpillar-ed out.
