Under a $100 dollars, depending on the kind of store you are buying the materials from. The mini skirt will cost only $20.
1. Cut out rectangular shapes
Pick three or four different colors that blend with each other. This project uses olive green, cocoa brown, dark gray, and antique white. Cut out rectangular shapes from the felt fabric with the scissor. The rectangular shapes should be of different sizes, usually in a range from 3 inches to 6 inches.
2. Fabric hole punch
The reason the skirt pops is due to the extra detailing around the edges. Punch a few holes into the fabric to recreate the exterior of shingles.
3. Arrange the rectangles
Place the felt rectangles in a haphazard pattern on your mini skirt. The pattern must resemble the block arrangement of a shingle roof. Start from the hemline of the skirt and move upwards. The rectangular pieces should overlap to give a layered effect. Cover up the entire front, no space should be visible.
4. Glue the rectangular pieces
After you are satisfied with the placement of the panels, attach the pieces to the skirt with the help of Collins unique stitch fabric glue. Hold the panels in place while exerting extra force to ensure the glue sticks. Let the skirt dry on a flat surface for an hour.
