Fall Inspired Skirt & Felt Purse



When thinking about what my next sewing project would be, I remembered a skirt I saw last year.  It had felt flowers on a lime green print.  I knew it would it perfect little skirt for Miss Priss. 

I love the colors of fall.....





Here is how it turned out....
Millie loves to carry purses around. I just had to make a matching purse!








It was pretty easy to make.  I used a basic, elastic waist skirt and added a ruffle.  

{Make a casing for your elastic}

{I ruffled the brown material by hand}


Next you cut out felt flowers for the skirt.....

{I found the cut out online}



 Then I hand stitched the flowers on and also secure edges with fabric glue.

{I added pom poms to the flowers to make them stand out more}



Finished skirt......




I was going to include steps for the purse and got so into my work I didn't take pictures. I will do one soon....it is very easy!

{I used bigger flowers for the purse}



 Lastly, I added velcro so that the purse will close.....



Look for the purse tutorial soon....

  6. I love the colors of Fall too, and I love that you used lime instead of having only warm colors. It's a nice pop! I think the pompoms are the perfect touch!
