Hi guys! I've been working on patchwork skirts lately. I really love patchwork. I'm trying to come up with the perfect skirt pattern using patchwork. I figure this could be a great way to use up some fabric, too. I love buying fabric, but lately I just can't justify it because of the excess that I already have. Well, maybe I could justify it, but Matt can't. So, I'm trying to come up with little ideas of things that I can make with patchwork. My first skirt (above) turned out pretty good, but it is a little too gathered at the waist.
So, I made this little purple number and I varied the amount of squares in each row. I think this one is definitely a better fit. Hmmm...I'm still deciding where to go with this. I'll have to continue this project later...because today I am going to work on neck ties for Easter! Matt agreed to wear a peach tie on Easter Sunday...MJ did not agree but I get to use a trump card every now and then and Easter Sunday is definitely one of those times that I like to use it. I'll show you how those turned out next week!
Have a great day!
