Skirts and Banners

Happy Birthday
Happy Halloween
Tinker bell Tutu

Rosetta Tutu

Black Witch pettiskirt

Halloween is here and I love to dress up! The black pettiskirt is my witch skirt :) I'm going to post final pics when the time comes. The green tutu is for Tinkerbell and the maroon is for Rosetta

The banner says: Happy Halloween..easy to make:

*1/4yd makes 2 triangles..so depending on what you are spelling and how many different fabrics you want to use: I used 7 different fabrics.

*about 4 yards of binding, twill tape, or ribbon

*about 1 yard 2 sided fusible facing (whatever thickness you desire..or you can just use heat n bond)

*about 1/2 yard material for cutting out letters: I traced chipboard letters onto fabric (you can print out your font and cut it out of chipboard)

*1/2 yard wonder under, heat n bond, fabric glue for letters

..sew along the edge of the triangle once the interfacing is ironed in and then sew on the binding: overlap each triangle corner just a little.

The triangles are 8in wide on top and 10 in long down the middle (fold your fabric in half, then cut out the triangle) The interfacing should be just smaller than the fabric.
