Diy Pear Dish Towel Skirt and Shirt

 We have always been a fan of Mr. Putter Books. So when I saw these dish towels on sale ( a while back ) at Target, I knew that they would make a perfect,

“Mr. Putter & Tabby Pick the Pears, Skirt!”

I started out by cutting off all the folded edges.

 Then sewed the right sides together of my 3 dish towels

( enclosing all sides, making one skirt )

I then finished my edges with a Serger and Ironed my seems.

 I  evened out my top and bottom edge. Then cut a 3 inc strip for my waist band and gathered the top of my skirt. 

 I finished the top edge of my waistband and pressed it over about an inch and a half. Sewed the right sides together of my waistband ends and top stitched leaving about a 3 inch opening for my elastic to go through.

 Taking my waistband and skirt, I then pinned right sides together.

Sewed and finished the raw edge. I then put my elastic through and stitched the opening closed.

 For the shirt I simply copied one of the pears off of the towel and traced it onto to some heat and bond and ironed it onto my shirt and finished with a zig zag  stitch.

We LOVE how it came out and we LOVE having our Mr. Putter & Tabby Pick the Pears, Skirt.
