Skirt Week: Rainbow Butterfly Skirt


I had such a great time participating in Project Run & Play Sew Along this year I thought I would search out some more competitions to enter into... So here is my entry into Skirt Week 2012! It is a competition over at Crafterhours.


I choose to applique an oversize rainbow butterfly on a simple knit skirt with an elastic waistband.


Want to know how I made it? Well you will have to wait... I have been asked to post a tutorial over at Project Run & Play!!! It will be my first guest post and I am so excited!


But not only did this invite come when I am hosting a baby shower for my sister, have 4 orders of Piggie & Gerald dolls waiting on me, got my wisdom teeth out last week, but I am also going out of town for a family reunion for 2 weeks! So I thought I would kill two birds with one stone and use my entry into skirt week as the project to do my guest tutorial on.

So if you want a really detailed tutorial on how to applique a butterfly on to a skirt check out the Project Run & Play blog on June 28th!



Ok... off to make baby shower favors for my little sister's shower!

    1. I know! We love Mo Williems- I had piggie & Gerald as the theme for is birthday last year!
      I made him some cute applique shirts but it won't let me paste the link in this comment field.
      The skirt was really easy, my girls are fighting over who actually owns it, I might have to make another one.
