Saved from the landfill this skirt is made from strips of fleece that are normally thrown away. Each strip of fabric is a different width and creates a really unique look.

When making a skirt I sort through the strips to find the right lengths and colors. I sew them each individually until I have the desired size I need to cut the skirt. It is a tedious process but well worth the time. I've been able to save garbage bags full of fabric by doing this.

This skirt is a size 2 but has elastic in the back of the waist for a perfect fit. The length measures 11". The ties can be worn in the front or back. Waist and hem are navy blue.

I know I should have a photo of a child wearing this skirt but I didn't have a cooperating 2 year old to do this and I wanted to get it posted.

For my other stripey project go here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=320838.msg3698152#msg3698152

How unique! I would love to see how it looks on a 2 year old, as I have one.  I love that it is all salvaged material, I enjoy doing those kinds of crafts.

I used to be strictly a yarn girl but now I'm teaching myself to sew.  Help! Smiley
