Rainbow Jo

>> Sunday, April 15, 2007

We have moved and all my sewing stuff is unpacked and I'm ready to start sewing again - but first here's something I made right before the move when I didn't have time to blog about it.

Jo was invited to a costume birthday party. She has a cat costume that we couldn't find anywhere.

She has a witch costume that seemed completely inappropriate for March.

She's been asking me to make her a rainbow skirt so I decided to make a hat to go with it and call it a rainbow costume. Ta daa!

It was easy to make - if you like making ruffles. Each strip was 1 1/2 times the length of the strip above it. My the time I got to the last strip I was using a REALLY long strip of purple. Seriously. I don't remember exactly how long it was, but after I sewed it into a loop I held it over my head and it still dragged on the floor. This is a very wide skirt by the time it gets to the bottom. Very square-dancer-ish.
