Share-A-Craft: Zebra Print Skirt

Share-A-Craft is just as much fun as a tilt-a-whirl, but with less stomach upset and possible vomiting. Every Monday, I post a project of any type that I've recently or not so recently done. We'd love to see what you've been making too. Send me an email with your name and a link to your project at karah99 @ gmail.com and you might end up featured. 

Ok, I know that my Share-A-Craft has been basically clothes for a long time. I think this is because I sewed so much last summer and I never got around to taking pictures of everything and put it up on the blog, so I have a backlog of sewing projects. Then, I've been knitting like a crazy old lady in a rocker on her front porch lately, and I love knitting things to wear, so there's that. Anyway, I have two projects underway that are not (gasp here) clothing projects. Sneak peak at the end of my post.

However, this week you get another clothing post. I'm sorry, but this one is just so cute, Aubriana wore it recently and I took pictures, so it's going up.

You might be surprised to learn that my husband is obsessed with zebra print. I'm not sure how or why this happened. I am not an animal print person, period. I don't think I've ever owned a single thing animal print. Probably my face when he showed them to me is what got him going. I am slowly getting over it and I'm developing a thing for zebra print, even if I can't help imagining this (zebra butt! zebra butt!):

every time I see something like this:
I am absolutely certain that we will end up with a zebra print rug, either in our bedroom or the family room.

So, when I took David ended up coming along to buy linings for the kids' Trick or Treat bags that I made last year (another project that never ended up on the blog), he convinced me to buy some zebra print cordory for Aubrey's bag. I made a skirt with leftovers. The pattern is one I designed, and it's a pretty simple concept.

I also added some tulle around the ruffle. It's super comfy, with a stretchy band in the back. It also has a black bow on the side. I'm surprised at how versatile it is, she wears it with pink shirts, an orange shirt, this lime green shirt and a black and white red shirt.


Oh, and here's a sneak peak of my non-clothing project in progress:
