My husband had found a dozen of these wonderful, high quality knit shirts for just $1 last fall and I am going to make skirts for each of them. They are for 5 to 9 year old boxes. This is the first one I
I chose to use four of the five colors of Flower Power fabric Joanne offers online.
It took 1/4 yard of each color and I had no scraps left. I made it long enough to be at least mid-calf as I know some cultures longer skirts are important.
I used the black background print for the hemline and the waistband.
To counter the busyness of the prints side by side, I used narrow, single fold bias tape to cover all of my seams.
I always include a hat in my boxes and Joanne let me pick out some yarn, too. I chose this green and red to match some of the colors in the prints.
I ordered these flip flops on clearance from Kohl's with a gift card I had won on a blog giveaway. The many colors match those in the skirt perfectly.
And finally a sweet bunny to enjoy playing in the field of flowers. This little fella was in the bunch of new Avon Beanies donated to our boxes.
