First, sorry about the lack of blog posts recently but with our girls going back to school and the never ending responsibilities of being on the board of our coop preschools it has been a rough start to the new school year. Plus, we have been so busy working on getting our Granola Tree products into specialty markets that there just hasn't been much time for fun crafting. But, we did take a little break out this Halloween to work on developing our newest pattern, a circle skirt. I should have this pattern posted in our shop in the next week or so. These skirts are so simple to sew and only take about 20 minutes each. The best part about this pattern is that it uses the super wide waistband elastic which really saves time as you do not need to sew an elastic channel. Also, it add to the comfort of the skirt which is really important if you have a sensative kid like mine. These skirts are done in a holiday print but would be cute in solids, wild safari prints or just about any other combination you might fancy. If you are feeling really lave you could make a no hem option with jersy or maybe glam it up with that confetti dot fabric.
