Here is the skirt I finished over a month ago! The fabric of this skirt was cut from a pillowcase. The other half of the fabric I used to make a purse.

I made the Irish Crochet motifs separately and arranged them on the skirt. After I am happy with the arrangement, I pinned the motif to the fabric then sewed them in place.
