Easiest Skirts ever…

Bubble Knit skirts have to be the easiest skirts ever to make.  Seriously cut and finished BOTH of these in about 40 minutes.   Cut a 18 x 6″ piece of cotton/lycra for her waist (which is 24.5″ measured) then cut full width x 30″ pieces for the bottom.  Sew both pieces into a tube.  Fold over BOTH pieces to match the raw edges together.  Then I ruffled the edge of the skirt.  Marked the waist “tube” and skirt bottom at halfway and pinned.  Then stretched and serged together the 2 “tubes”. 

Result was 2 play skirts finished!! :D

Then I also finished these cloth diaper wetbags for Green Pixie Baby’s store.

Whew… it had been a long time since I had really made a point to sew something other then diapers and serge bibs for my Etsy store, lol.   It was fun!!

    Those skirts are super adorable! They sound super easy too, I’ll have to try and remember to pick up some material like that. The waist band looks comfy too for a picky girl of mine.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a amazing job with
    this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera.
    Superb Blog!
