One Woman Late Night Applique Party

 You know sometimes you get on a roll?
 A derby friend asked me to make her a skirt, and let me design it!  So, fitting with her derby name, it had to be fiery.  I combined an op-shopped skirt, with a t-shirt from my $1 shop (printed on the front was 'Condom Kingdom, Official Tester', I was very happy to chop that one up!) 
All I did was to pin it on flat, draw the design with removable fabric pen, sew around design using a small zig-zag stitch, and then cut away the excess fabric.
Same with the yellow layer.
It's getting later, but now I'm on a roll, a few snacks to keep me going!
 Finished?  Hmmnnn... not quite right yet, I think the yellow dominates, so one more layer
 Designing the pattern first, the following the same procedure as for the first two layers.

Yes, finished!  I hope she likes it, and if she doesn't I'll have it!


  1. Wowzers! Your genius never ceases to blow my mind...

  2. Is that for Blackout? ( - slicer)
