Backgammon Skirt Tutorial

Louise from I’m Feelin’ Crafty invited me to participate in her Sew Ready to Play series, where bloggers are sharing sewing projects inspired by games. Predictable as I am, I made a skirt for my girls. And I used triangles! Very similar to the bunting skirt that I made for the Moda Bake Shop a few months back, this is a simple elastic waist skirt with a patchwork hem band. Inspired by a backgammon board, this easy skirt uses bits of my new fabric for Kokka on a charcoal chambray background.

  • Craft magazine posted a thumbnail of this gorgeous skirt on their Facebook page, and I was up to come here to tell you, how much I LOVE your fabric choises. – And now I even read that the fabrics are totally your baby?! I am very impressed.
    I really, really love these prints a lot, and I will totally order me some yardage of it.
