This post has instructions for sewing up a super fast and easy skirt out of comfy knit fabric. One of the things I love about this skirt pattern is that I can whip one up in no time – leaving me lots of extra time for a little fancifying. Like this. . .

I’ll tell you – I love this skirt. I’m going to be so sad when Jo outgrows it!

I really need to make one for myself. . .

But you want to know about the embroidery. That’s what the video is for! 🙂 I show you exactly how to do it. It’s easy. Even easier than the ruffles video I shared last week. But it takes longer – that’s why I waited to do it second.

Want to know something else? You don’t have to do this only on a skirt. You could totally stitch a rainbow like this around the hem of a regular T-shirt and it would look awesome! Just make sure it’s not too tight a T-shirt, because this stitching will kill the stretch.

Want even fancier fancification? Jump ahead to this post showing how to crochet a scalloped hem. Oooh. . . 🙂

Happy stitching, everyone!
