Rated 3 out of 5 by from ? What keeps this rag skirt from ruining? This is cute but you wouldn't be able to wash it. There needs to be a seem of some sort or your fabric eventually will have a bunch of strings and look horrible. Seems like a waste of fabric if it'll look bad. I would suggest a small rolled seem around each strip before tying.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Make "catalog item" a search option Received my sales catalog in the mail and thought I'd check out the directions on these children's skirts as a possible project. After going through all 28 pages of projects and not finding the matching photo I started bumbling through the web options and after several failed attempts, luckily managed to find it. Then I couldn't download the info because the print, download and save project buttons were overlapping. After reading the other reviews and zooming in on the photo I realized this project would fray badly after washing. It isn't worth the time to make.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Play skirt only I made this skirt for my nieces. I checked the reviews and took the advise about using fray check. It was very time consuming, it did make a nice edge. It was also costly a bottle did about a third of the strips. I had already rotary cut the strips, so it was very difficult trying to pink the rest of the edges. I would recommend using tailors chalk to mark the lines then pinking them as the fabric is cut into strips. The waist is thick. Keep in mind this is for dress up play. In the end I just tied the raw strips, the skirts were cute!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Projects hard to find on website I, too, had difficulty finding this pattern on the website, after seeing it in a catalog. I even asked staff at my local JoAnn's store to help search the website, and they had no luck either. The catalogs either need to state what project section to find the pattern, or provide some name or number. I bought the quilt fabric, and was going to guess how to complete it, then I finally found the project. Now I am disappointed to read these reviews and what a waste of time and money this may turn out to be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cute! I have not made this skirt yet, but if you want to keep the fabric looking nice, you can hem the rags or you can use fray check.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to find I searched twice for this pattern at (where the catalog said it could be found), and after scrolling through over 1000 items, it was not there. I finally found it, but after reading other reviews, I agree that it would fray badly if made with cotton fabric. I may still make it, but only with soft tulle or some other fabric with which fraying isn't as much of a problem.
