I made my first foray into spoonflower and now I'm addicted!

This is made from a  fat quarter.  I just squared it up, cut it into two rectangle and sewed it together.  Then I gathered at the top and sewed it to a brown knit waistband and threaded the elastic through.  It has a wide hem that I can let down as she grows and a good 1.5 inches of elastic that I can let out of the waist band.  I'm sure she will be able to wear this skirt until she's 4!

This is made from spoonflower's organic sateen and it's gorgeous!  It was very nice to work with too.  I'm going to have to order some more and make a whole dress Smiley

and here you can see the knit waist band.

I have a few more ideas for skirts in the works, but I should really work on her halloween costume first.  These quick projects are just so tempting!

Both the little skirt and the little model look way cute!
I bet you will get lots of compliments when she wears it.
Great job!

Very cute fabric!  At first I thought it was just circles, but then I realized I was looking at wood grain with owl in the knotholes! Cute!

If you can't do it with duck tape...it can't be done!

Thanks for the compliments.

Ha!  While I was out, I had 2 different people tell me the skirt was cute and ask me if I made it.  Hmm, maybe I should rethink the contrast stitching lol
