Just for fun!

Today I made this for the Molly Button who has recently discovered the joys of twirly skirts. It took no time at all and I am positively delighted with the result and the twirling it provoked. Will Button, twin brother of Molly Button, donned said twirly skirt after it had been discarded and proceeded to name all the Babushkas one by one and have a bit of a twirl himself. At that point Mr Button left the house muttering under his breath and calling all Buttons outside for some rough and tumble. Last I heard, he was explaining that twirly skirts are not acceptable de rigeur for footy.

Of course, one of the side benefits of using this little piece of fabric is being able to make lots of these with the leftovers.

I have three ideas floating in my head for them.

Some more of these cause I do love making them and giving them to people.

Or something like this on a tee to go with the twirly skirt. Please note the date on this post, Kathy had completed Christmas outfits for her twins by November 17 and was finished early enough to blog about it!

I also have a hankering to try something like this. She is, of course, totally correct about the addictive nature of the self covered button. These kits really should come with a warning and a number for some sort of help line.


  1. Love the Babushka skirt and button, very cute. Thanks for the plug... you made me have a little giggle!

  2. It's so nice to be able to make something 'just for fun' rather than for work, and who doesn't love to dance around in a twirly skirt (boys included)

  3. I'm sorry, but the evil in me does love a brother button twirling around in a skirt keeping his Dad on his toes.

    PS. Thank heaven that babushka fabric wasn't around for the button sessions. I can see that wouldn't be helping the restraint.

  4. Tee Hee. Gotta love a brother Button in a twirly skirt keeping his Dad on his toes!!!
