Whether it is your go-to bag for shopping or a gift for someone, this simple and chic crossbody purse is a great bag for everyday of the year.
1. Measure your child’s waist and multiply by 2. This will be the width of your fabric. Cut fabric to this width.
2. Measure from the child’s waist down to where you want the skirt to finish. Add 4.5” to this number. This will be the length of your fabric. Cut fabric piece from step one to this length.
3. Fold your fabric piece in half bringing the two short ends together. The right sides of the fabric should be facing. Pin the two short ends together and sew together using a ½” seam allowance.
4. Press the seam allowance open.
5. Fold the top raw edge of the skirt to the wrong side by 1” and press with an iron. Fold the top edge over again by 1.25”. You might need to pin the fold in place for accuracy. Press the edge with an iron.
6. Sew the fold down, leaving a 2” hole unsewn.
7. Hem the skirt by folding the bottom edge 1” to the wrong side and pressing. Fold over 1” again and press. Stitch the hem in place.
8. Using a bodkin or safety pin, thread the elastic through the casing of the waistband. Ask the child to try on the skirt and adjust the size of the waistband as necessary. Sew the two ends of the elastic together.
9. Before sewing the hole in the waistband closed, slip in a piece of ribbon or a label so that the child may identify the back of the garment easily. Sew the hole in the waistband closed to finish.
Approx ½ yard cotton fabric
Sewing machine, thread
Iron and ironing board
1” wide elastic
