Forest friends lolita skirt by The-Cute-Storm Forest friends lolita skirt by The-Cute-Storm
This photo is of my entry for the Singer and Craft Magazine "Sewing with Nature" contest. The description is pretty much a copy and paste from my entry.

I planned this skirt around the idea of re-using scraps from older projects (mostly felted wool twills). The main red fabric is a dead stock piece of yardage that had some damage I had to work around. Part of this was fulfilling the idea of "sewing with nature" by making the skirt green (reusing what may have otherwise been wasted materials) as well as using mostly nature fiber (since most of the fabric is wool, and the trimming is cotton).

My design features spotted toadstools, happy hedgehogs, clovers and white polka dots. I wanted to have a woodland story book feel to the final piece with out following a specific fairytale.


The finished piece has the flare of two of my favorite styles: Japanese "zakka" crafts (zakka refering to "this and that" made from scraps) and the Japanese sweet lolita style.

I look forward to wearing this skirt, and I hope you all enjoy seeing my sewing machine art!

This is so cute! I have seen it a few times and it still makes me happy. I really have a new respect for you. I just made my first dress and it was hard.
It's beautiful! The hedge hogs are my favorite!

Thanks! The contest was last year, I didn't place, but I get the impression it wasn't the look they where going for (everything that placed was is a very muted color pallet and home-decor based!)
