Skirting the Issue: Maureen from Maureen Cracknell Handmade

My creation

Hi, I'm Maureen! Today I'm thrilled to be sharing my very first garment tutorial for a Simple Drawstring Skirt with a sweet Melody Miller Ruby Star Shining Typewriter Applique, as part of Skirting the Issue for Project Run and Play!

The Drawstring Skirt


You can click on the image above or follow this link to find my tutorial to make one for yourself or to join in our efforts!

This skirt tutorial is designed to fit a pre-teen to teenage girl. However, it did fit me just fine, and I'm a size 6 -- the drawstring makes it work for many sizes! You can make a smaller or larger version using this method, by simply taking away or adding a few inches to the width and length! If you have any questions feel free to email me anytime at


I've included a few steps for adding a quick and easy applique, too!

  1. I love a dub dub that typewriter applique and those fabrics! I realize that was a bit corny but who cares?! This is really cute!
