Not only simple, but also super speedy. I made this as a birthday present for one of Sol’s friends, turning 5. I wasn’t sure how I was going to make a skirt from scarves at first, so bought four silk scarves of varying lengths and widths from a charity shop. I then toyed with the idea of just giving her the four scarves, as my two had some serious fun just running, shaking, tying and rolling around in the scarves as they were. But no: I had some unfulfilled crafty urges that needed to be realised into an actual skirt. I found a photo of one on Pinterest and that gave me the idea of cutting a hole in the centre of a square scarf to create an asymetric, twirly hem.
I stitched on a cotton waistband, threaded some elastic through it, and made a little flower from the circle I’d cut out. It was really very easy and extremely satisfying!
Every so often I need a quick, easy and pretty project to break up the long quilts, calendars and knitting. Florence over at FlossieTeacakes blogged recently about the heartbreak of realising something you’ve spent hours over is just Not Going To Work and will never see the light of day. It’s a bitter feeling and this wee skirt was the perfect antidote. I think Holly liked it too!
