scrappy skirt

A little something I picked up from Jorth.

It was a present for my niece for her 5th birthday back in early July.  A simple design that only cost me the effort of raiding my mum's craft supplies for scraps and putting it all together.  The only sewing I did was to handsew two elastic ends to make a loop.  I selected mostly non-fraying fabrics and cut long strips of them and then just tied them onto the elastic.  I did end up cutting points on the ends of the dangling fabric pieces too just coz I thought it looked better that way.  I added some little bells I found and some tied on some ribbon.  That's it.  One fun skirt for a happy little girly girl.  Another of her aunties gave her a set of fairy wings so the outfit was complete.
