Keep Calm Craft On

Joining Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Craft On.

I had a few minutes to whip out a few simple skirts! Oh so much fun. Love the fabrics so much. The mermaid was a gift for a friend's daughter's birthday. Since I already had the machine out I thought I might as well make a couple more. Fiona picked out the orange unicorns and I thought Nuala would look super cute for spring in the flowers. I was thinking of making more but I ran out of elastic.
I've been saving this huge stack of lovely fabrics to make Nuala a quilt, but she has soooo many special blankets made by me or by others that really, at the moment we just don't need another blanket. So my plans are to start making more skirts. Maybe mixing it up a little, adding a pocket, or using two fabrics. But not really using a pattern, just sort of playing with it, cuz that is how I roll. Hahaha

Oh I wish I could just "whip" out a few beautiful skirts like yours! (sewing is NOT my forte!) Gorgeous work--thanks so much for sharing...Lori

you can always re-use the skirts for a future quilt when she outgrows them.
They are so cute on her!!

They look great - I especially love the unicorn fabric.

Cute, cute skirts. I wish I could sew, but I've finally realized that is a skill I just don't have!

PS- the yarn I am using for my secret knitting is Peaches & Crème in the color Oasis.
