The Wand Skirt with Cuddle Suede - Harry Potter Inspired

I'm excited to be a guest blogging at Shannon Fabrics today sharing this Wand Skirt made from their Cuddle Suede and gold trim from Decorative Trimming.  

Our family has been die-hard Harry Potter fans for years, with my 10-year-old daughter being the most enthusiastic.  I made her a Hermione Skirt a couple years ago...

....but since she's growing taller by leaps and bounds it was time for a new one.
The Cuddle Suede in Charcoal was the perfect color to be reminiscent of a Hogwarts Uniform and I used Cuddle Suede in Black for the appliqued wand.  The the  1/8" Gold Braid from Decorative Trimmings is really adds the perfect magical finishing touch.  Cuddle Suede comes 60" wide, which makes it ideal for circle skirts for older kids.

I'm sharing this skirt as part of the Happy Harry Potter Celebration that's put on my Marissa at Raegun Ramblings every year, so besides today's project, you'll want to check out all of the fun Harry Potter Themed DIY goodness.
