At the hop...

I made my first garment this week.  Well, sort of...

The little one had a sock hop at her school and wanted to have a real poodle skirt for her outfit, so I gave it a try.  I have to say I am very pleased with the result.  With the help of this Circle Skirt tutorial as a starting point it really was quite simple.

We won't discuss the needle I broke sewing the felt to the elastic waistband or the fact I cheated by gluing on the poodle.  But, really, we had no choice about the applique, we thought we'd take the easy way and get an iron-on poodle...ya, not gonna work with felt. Oops, no problem, gotta love the Liquid Stitch.

So, here are the obligatory cute kid photos!
She was overjoyed at how well the felt spun for her!
