Getting out the sewing machine

I've been feeling crafty lately! I made this bandana skirt for C, and I'm so happy with the way it turned out! I used the super simple tutorial from V and Co. C seemed to like it too!


I also painted another freezer paper T-shirt and added some more pictures & info to my tutorial.

Cute! I so wish I knew how to sew. I can sew a straight line, but don't know how to follow a real pattern.

Ahhh, but the best part about this tutorial is that it isn't a real pattern (real patterns intimidate me)! It was just straight lines. You just cut a bandanna in half, sew a piece on the bottom (only if you need the length), sew both sides together and add the elastic (that's probably the hardest part, but still pretty easy). Pretty quick with a sewing machine.

I just learned to sew last year, and I can't do anything too fancy yet!

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I love these!!! I've never tried the freezer paper stenciling, but now I'm so inspired to try it. You got such great results. :-)

Thanks Valerie, I'm pleased with the way they turned out! Now that basic stencils worked well, I can do some more detailed ones!

That skirt is really cute, and your freezer stencilling is amazing!

How CUTE!! I made a skirt just like that, but I used cow print where you used black. I love them!
