Feature Friday - Rick Rack Skirt

This week I posted a skirt I embellished using an existing skirt I bought at Wal-mart.  After I posted that I got a comment from Autie at iCandy.  She bought the same skirt and did this to it.  You'll find her tutorial HERE.  Isn't it ridiculously cute? 


I loved her version so much I whipped one up for another niece of mine.  It's a teeny tiny 18 month skirt.  Now I just need to come up with a shirt for it.  (I think my rick rack is different and a bit bigger.  I got it on a roll at Hobby Lobby.  If you use the kind I bought it frays a ton when you cut it, so I had to do some zigzag stitching at the ends where the rick rack overlaps.)


I am in love with this little skirt!  It kind of makes me want to have a girl.  Christie from A Lemon Squeezy Home made one as well.  Check it out HERE.  Pretty much any color combination is adorable.  You'll find Autie's tutorial HERE.

Thanks for reading.

So cute!!

You can also use a lighter and melt the edge of the rick rack to seal it too!
