skirt the issue

I've had this book lying around for awhile and finally decided to put it to good use.

Sewing projects usually intimidate me for some reason, but so far making this skirt has been super easy.
I'm already thinking of other things I could make in the same way and everyone I know might be getting applique tee shirts in their stockings this Christmas. Or maybe I'll make everyone applique stockings, who knows?

I'll post more photos when I am done, and maybe even add them to the Alabama Stitch Project flickr pool.

Cool! I got my very first sewing machine last week! I've wanted one since I was a little girl, so I've been putting it off for way too long. I managed to thread it up and made a couple thumbless mittens while practicing the straight stitch :) Looking for a good beginner book once I get used to the basics. Can't wait to see the finished product of this skirt--it looks great already!

I love the gray on gray! That's going to look awesome!

very cool. I'd love to learn how to sew and knit. Such a timeless talent to have! Funny that now it's a talent and back in the day it was incredibly necessary to life! :o)

Oh, I like this - nice work. I'll have to look for that book.

looks great. I just might have to try it - we'll need another stocking this year! Yikes! I just realized that. Oh my God. There's four of us now!
