My Creative Space


I have already shown off the first Minnie Me skirt I did as a test knit, but this pattern was so good that straight away I cast on another so I could test the flared twirly version.

This one is the perfect size for Possum whenever a cooler day shows up.  The full body allows for more drape into the ruffle making this a soft and sweet.

You can buy this pattern here on Ravelry.  I can't recommend it enough, simple, well written and two great skirts to choose from with the one pattern.



And here is a sneak peak of the name tag I made as part of a swap for Sew it Together.  We had to use the colours orange, yellow and brown.  I had some handmade clay buttons from Jo at The Bird and the Fish that matched perfectly.  I am the first person to make my tag so far, I must be excited ;)

    I played with mine yesterday - embroidered the name and it turned out way too long. Back to the drawing board.

  9. Love this skirt too. What gorgeous yarn. And what a great pattern.
    Just as I was about to start on that one to break the monotony of the grey cardi, I found my own skirt pattern to test. Yay!
