Paperbag Pillowcase Skirt

This past summer, we were invited to post a skirt tutorial over on
Simple Simon & Co
for their Skirting the Issue Series.  Here it is, in case you missed it!

Hi! Jen here, of iCandy handmade.
Autie and I are so excited to be a part of this
Over at iCandy, we have posted quite a few skirt tutorials;
they are one of our favorite things to make!
Here are a few:
Semi-Homemade
Today we came up with a new (to us) idea!
As we were trying to think about what kind of skirt to make,
I thought of using a pillowcase.
I have made dresses and nightgowns out of them, why not a skirt??
The options are endless- vintage flowers, lace, plain with added embellishments, even characters!
You could even use regular fabric, if you don’t have a cute pillowcase.

I used a lace-edged one I had in my stash, and Emily and I are very happy with the way it turned out.

It is an elastic/drawstring waist combo, with eyelets.
Want to make one??

 

Tutorial 

Materials:
1 pillowcase or fabric equivalent
1/2 yd 1″ elastic
about 1-1/2 to 2 yards 1″ ribbon.
2 large eyelets and either kit or tool to set them in OR make buttonholes

Stitch on marked lines.
Thanks again for having us, ladies!!
