Yet Another Skirt, This Time For Halloween

My friend sent me some halloween fabric by Alexander Henry to make some skirts out of and she let me keep the leftovers 🙂  I made another skirt, it was just too perfect.  I adore this fabric!

These skirts are just too easy and fun!  She loves them, I love them, it’s a win-win 🙂

I have also been busy crocheting hats for the family.  It is cold already!  I am having trouble finding a manly and tightly crocheted pattern for my husband.  He rides his bike all year round to work and I want something that will really keep him warm.  If anyone knows of a great pattern link me up 🙂  Also if you have a suggestion for yarn I would love to hear it!

    I love the skirt! Do you have a tutorial or pattern that you used? Also, I LOVE your wooden doll house and little people. I have been working on our own and hope to finish soon. Thanks for sharing the great photos. Very fun!

    I don’t really have a pattern but the closest thing to it is the lazy days skirt

    mixed with the twirly skirt

    I don’t own a serger so I use the selvage to my advantage like in the lazy days one. you could also do a french seam and avoid fraying. I always add a contrasting band on the bottom like in the twirly skirt.

    Hope that helps! Thanks so much for the kind comments 🙂

    Cheryl, please show me when you are done with your dollhouse!!

    Thanks for sharing your ideas. My own daughter won’t wear skirts, but I wanted to make some skirts for my neighbor’s little girl. Your skirt looks like it is lined, or maybe even reversible. I have been trying to figure out how to do that. I’ll email photos when I get one finished…as well as our dollhouse and dolls. My daughter and I have been having a lot of fun with that! Thanks, again!

    Hi Cheryl,
    it is not lined actually. Just one layer is all. Very simple stuff! I have never even attempted a lined skirt, that seems way beyond my abilities 🙂 Looking forward to seeing your projects!
