So I'll be the first to admit I have an unhealthy love for cuttlefish. I've toying with creating a cuttlefish silk screen. I messed up my previous two attempts. I'm glad I did because this one is perfect!! (imo)
I am having a hard time making waists for my maternity skirts. I don't like working with jersey knits because they roll. I have been using just plain 2 or 3 inch elastic and it works well, but I just attach the raw elastic to the skirt (no casing) and though it doesn't look pretty it works well.
We made 50 of these in various paper colors. My hubby cut out the tulip shape. It is hard to see but I sewed random stitching on the paper, then printed on the paper, then added pics that I printed from shutterfly.
