Finished a tiered skirt, trying to replicate one of my favorite store-bought ones.  This puts me at 3 projects for the year so far, but I've got a new organizational/motivational program that will hopefully help me put the spurs to my crafting from here on out! Who knows, I might even still be able to finish something for the challenge! Cheesy



Love those painted monsters!

P_E_S_T - love the sea creatures - that octopus pattern looks familiar, I made one from a book called Amigurumi Knits by Hansi Singh, but it didn't have the seahorse pattern (which is adorable!).  I also love the flying fish, I want to try them out and throw them!

quaggy - oooooh, monsters!  I love the paint job!  They are adorable!

fishstix43 - nice tiered skirt!  Those can be such a pain in the rear, we're always making them for costumes, I know how much trouble they can be  and is that knit fabric?  That's doubly hard to work with.  And if it's not but just looks like it, what kind of fabric is it, because I need some!

Smeddley - yeah, I definitely had to do it in small batches; I could not imagine having to do all that gathering and long seams all at once.  The fabric is a really weird texture, it is a knit but was really...spongy?  gauzy?  You probably can't see in the picture, but it's also got some prepressed wrinkles in it. Here's a picture of it closer up, the color is really off but hopefully you can see what I mean.


  That's most of the reason that it took me so long to figure out what the heck to do with it!  I don't mind knits as a rule, but this is not a fabric I'd rush to work with again. Lucky for me, I'm pretty sure it was secondhand from somewhere, so I don't know if I ever would even find it again.  Thanks for the compliments everybody!
