Skirting the Issue

Monday, July 24, 2017

Every July, Liz and Elizabeth from Project Run & Play host Skirting the Issue. All month long, for this event, skirts, quilts, and pillowcases are made and donated to local Foster Care centres for kids in need. Over the past several years, more than 1000 skirts have been donated! What a wonderful way to give back to countless communities! A big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this cause. All the information you need to get involved can be found here.  It's a huge pleasure for me to join with other bloggers to offer tutorials and patterns, in support of this annual event.

A few years ago, the Magnolia Skirt pattern was released at E&E Patterns. It's a super comfortable, flared skirt with major twirl factor that's really easy to sew. The two styles (flared or A-line) can be sewn in either knit or woven fabrics and is available in sizes 6 months to 9 years. Because the Magnolia's design is so versatile and simple to make, I thought it would be a perfect pattern for Skirting the Issue. So, until the end of July, it's being offered for FREE!  Not only that, but while you're over at the shop getting your Magnolia Skirt pattern, feel free to receive 10% off any other patterns using coupon code "FORKIDS".

My daughter is wearing a size 6 Magnolia Skirt (View B) in jersey knit.

To get your free copy of the Magnolia Skirt Pattern, head over to the pattern listing page, copy and paste the link to your browser, and download it. This offer, as well as the 10% discount off all patterns, is only valid until midnight PST on July 31, 2017.

Thank you, Liz and Elizabeth, for organizing this opportunity to give back to those in need. Here's hoping there will be many, many children this year enjoying beautiful handmade skirts, quilts, and pillowcases, thanks to this event. Share photos of your Skirting the Issue creations at the Project Run & Play link-up.
