Alex modelling her twirly skirt
Finally I have finished Alexandras quilt... The binding I used was polka dot blue and pink inspired by crazy mums blog found here:http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/ who loves polka dots. Then in the progressive chain of one thing leading to another I kept looking at the polka dots as I was binding and thinking this would make a great skirt and thus that idea was born. I went mad and mad four, now five and will be doing another two in totally un polka dot materials. They were cheap to make too. If any one has a simple pattern for this simpleton of a clothes sewer please let me know!! I tried shirring but the elastic kept breaking... neat pattern that too can be found on same site as Twirly skirt.
My first ever tote bag. I want to do these in patch work in the new year.
