DIY Skirt and Hairband

This skirt is not exactly the vibrant colours required of the April stashbusting challenge but it did bust some stash and provide a gorgeous little girl with a handmade birthday pressie!

I bought the fabric two years ago (almost) to make a similar skirt and hair clip. This time I managed to cut the fabric too small so ended up with an almost identical skirt to the last time which was fine, just not the full skirt I had wanted...!

 I also made a fabric flower (using this tutorial), stuck a rosette in the centre then hot glued it to a alice band, simple!

Linking to these fab linky parties!

  5. Thanks for sharing. I've been wanting to try my hand at some fabric flowers. They sure can brighten up other things!

    1. You should make some, although they are addictive :)

  6. A gorgeous idea - you're so talented with your sewing machine.
