Thanks everyone Smiley I actually didn't use a pattern, made it up myself. Made a basic skirt and added 2 layers of ruffle on the basic skirt. It's my second skirt from scratch.. just measuring, cutting, adding elastic, making ruffles etc. I'm pretty proud of it Smiley

Hallo iedereen!

I'm dutch too! I live in the hague. I love making clothes/bags and am just 'open' for everything crafty, so I pretty much like anything, except knitting Tongue If you are wondering where I get my stuff, I LOVE 'de haagse markt'. It's on monday, wendsday, friday and saturday. They havo soooo much fabric! And most of it is 1 or 2 euro per meter (how much do you all spend on fabric?). I cannot stand stores like toetenell (cheapest there is 9 euro a meter, and those are the UGLY fabrics!!) and pipoos, they overcharge everything like crazy.

You mean like, wash it allready? I actually wash all my 'good stuff' (actually everything except pants) by hand, so I don't think it will shrink Tongue thanks!

I took some old tommy hilfiger pants that were too wide and too short (perfect to reconstruct!) and made this skirt. I always make the band too short to ruffle enough, oh well. And yes, my cat REALLY wanted to be in the pic.

Thanks for looking!

SO I decided to make a skirt from scratch with some black cotton fabric. It's not very easy to see but this is how it turned out:

It's basic, but it turned out better then I expected! The ruffles suck though because they go a little upwards. Anyway, I was thinking, this skirt is quite boring like this. I have some felt but have NO ideas on what to make. This is the felt I have (click for large pic)


The pieces are not big but I want to make something small. I thought about an ice-cream or something, but I'm not sure.. any tips? Is it even possible to use vilt on clothes?

Oh by the way, mine LOVES her sofa soooo much now! In the beginning she didn't really sleep in it a lot, only if I actually put her there (she is a good kitty, when you put her somewhere, she will stay there, whatever position you put her in! lol) but now she is on her sofa almost the entire day. Especially, when the music (classic music, relaxing music) is turned on. We kind of discovered that every time when we turn on relaxing and soothing music, kiev goes to her sofa and lies there, relaxed. We then moved the sofa under the cd player and she absolutely loves it, a couple of days ago she was sitting in the sofa and tried to turn the cd-player on with her paw too. So cute!

Aww how cute! I was thinking about making a bigger one too.. how much bigger did you make that one? I want it to be very comfy for her. Mine is about 6 kg too and her sofa is a little too small, but she still sleeps in it sometimes. It's amazing to see how much they appreciate your gifts, like the can feel you made it with all your heart and because you love them.

Can anyone tell me why the middle piece can't be sewn close at the beginning when also doing the outside? It seems so much easier. Or will it be impossible to turn it inside out?
