My First Circle Skirt21:00
I have a few huge annoying pieces of fabric in my stash that I can't see myself ever using, one was a large Indian bead spread that had a circle pattern within a rectangle pattern (I did take a photo but it has disappeared). The colours were nice, the weight was nice but I had no idea what to do with it... until I was talking to a friend who I am teaching to sew and she was describing the type of skirt she would like to try, a circle skirt.
Why hadn't I though of that?!
So last weekend I dragged the bedspread out of the cupboard and, using the By Hand circle skirt app, whipped up a full circle skirt out of the bead spread.
I love it and am really pleased with how the pattern looks. The only problem is that I didn't prewash the fabric and I am sure it will shrink when I wash it, maybe it will provide the kick up the backside I need to just loose that final stone...
Linking to some of these fab linky parties!
