Is there anything more precious than a newborn baby? Perhaps a newborn baby in a pom pom trimmed skirt?
To make a pom pom baby skirt, you’ll need:
-a 6″x30″ rectangle of fabric
-30″ of coordinating pom pom trim
-a 10″ length of elastic
-sewing machine and supplies
1. Pin your pom pom trim to the bottom of your fabric rectangle. Stitch in place. Fold under and press. Top stitch along the bottom of your ‘skirt’ (I used a contrasting color for a little visual interest).
2. Fold your rectangle in half, making a fabric ‘tube.’ If you want to use a fabric label, sandwich it between your edges, facing into the skirt. Sew the two open edges together. Fold the top over and iron down (this will soon be your elastic casing). You can serge the edge if you please.
3. Leave a small opening to thread your elastic through and sew the rest of the casing shut. Feed elastic through your opening. Stitch the elastic together and then sew your opening shut. Pair with a sweet teeny onesie and your peanut is cute as can be and ready to go out on the town!
