Recent Makes: Knitted Headband, Skull Cushion, One Hour Skirt

I've been enjoying some fun little crafts over the last few weeks.

This knitted headband from Design Fixation took me waaaaay longer than the 2 hours mentioned in the instructions, but it was well worth it.  I used some lovely turquoise wool from Poundland (I'm all class) and now have a nice cosy head :)

I made this skirt in some navy and white polka dot material from Walthamstow market. It is pretty shiny and not the highest quality ever so I'm not sure how long it'll last.  It is very cute though and I will definitely be making some more.  Time to search for lovely stripy fabric........

There's no tutorial for this skull cushion as I basically made it up as I went along.  The fabric is an off cut of an Ikea curtain.  I drew the skull on freehand in pencil and embroidered it on with my sewing machine.  Then I cut out the holes and reverse appliqu├ęd the black material on.  Probably not the quickest method but it turned out pretty well!
It is a shame that cushion covers are so easy to make as I really don't need any more cushions in my house.  I'm all cushioned out. 

What have you made recently?
