Today, I’m sharing a new Halloween inspired skirt project plus a review and giveaway of the Panasonic Cordless 360 Freestyle Iron. Update: giveaway over

Are you ready for some Halloween inspired cute-ness?

DIY Halloween Skirt

I have some cute, new Halloween themed fabrics for several projects on my seasonal sewing to-do list.  A new skirt for my lil’ missy was at the top of the list and of course, I’ve already shared the tutorial for her trick or treat bag.

Flat Front Skirt for Halloween

I love the flat front of the skirt and how great it looks with a tucked-in shirt.  (Not all elastic waist skirts look good with a tucked-in shirt.)  

I think the skirt turned out super cute in the Halloween fabric and I had a tutorial planned.  (Already did the photos and everything…)  But, as I was drifting off to sleep last night, I decided to sew one more skirt.  

I want to try one little tweak to the waistband (I think it will be even better) and maybe make the skirt slightly fuller.

So… Look for this new pattern/tutorial in the next week or two.  (If you want to make a skirt in the meantime, my Cupcake Skirt Pattern is very similar and comes with measurements for sizes 18 mo to 8.)

Here’s the Scoop on the Panasonic Iron:

I’ve always wanted a cordless iron, and when Panasonic emailed me to try out the Panasonic Cordless 360 Degree Freestyle Iron, I very happily said yes! (The giveaway is over, but it is a great little iron if you are in the market for a cordless iron.)

I used the iron when making this skirt and really liked using it.  

Pros:
1.  It’s cordless!  No more getting the cord tangled around my feet or the ironing board!
2.  The iron “plate” is shaped like a pointy football, meaning you can iron in either direction.  (also good for households with lefties or righties- not that my lefty hubby does any ironing…)
3. It’s lightweight!  (My other iron is very heavy.)
4.  Has an auto shut off.  (very important)
5.  Adjustable temperature and steam so you can adjust the heat to your specific fabric.  I also like the rounded handle and the placement of the buttons- right where my thumb is.

Cons:
1. It’s cordless- so on a larger project, you will have to return it to the base every so often to keep it hot.  (I expected this, but it’s something to keep in mind if you are considering a cordless device…)
2. Because of the football shape, you can’t just quickly set it upright, it must be returned to the base.  I think this will become a habit with more use.)

I would love to hear about any sewing or other projects you have planned for Fall/Halloween, leave me a comment and let us know what you are up to!

  1. I don't have any Halloween project, but I plan to sew some throw pillows for the family room and a cosmetic bag. Thanks for the giveaway! ☺

  2. I'm adding a Halloween wall hanging this year to put in my dining room. It matches my table runner, I just didn't do it last year when I did the runner, Holiday gifts had to be made, I love the skirt. I would love to make one for my Granddaughter. Thanks for the chance.

  3. No Halloween sewing this year :(. My kids are grown up and no grandkids..yet. I am working on some xmas gifts. I want to make some pretty pillowcases with crochet borders. Thanks!

  4. I'm not doing any Halloween projects. I have so many Christmas projects (tree skirt, stocking, advent calendar) that I can't take on anything else right now. 🙂
    This would be a great iron!

  5. I'm making costumes for my grandchildren: Minnie Mouse, fairy princess, ninja, Batgirl, mad scientist

  6. Oh, how I wish I could sew. The last Halloween project I made was to take a prestamped pillow and sew up the sides and neck to make it into a pumpkin contest for my now 33 year old daughter.

  7. I have some black fabric with red sequins waiting on me to make into a 1950's style halter dress for myself. With the rest I'm going to make circle skirts for my girls. My goal is to wear them all at the same time and have them look like my backup singers. 😀

  8. Love the skirt. How cute. Wishing we had halloween in Australia now! Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Love the skirt!!!Beautiful….I'm a beginner when it comes to sewing so I don't really have any projects coming up…Thank you for the chance…Good luck everyone

  10. Great iron!
    My little grand-daughter is going to be a Lady Bug, so I better get busy!

  11. A cordless iron will come in handy! I have a 3 yr old and 1 yr old and it is hard to work on any sewing projects past the ironing phase when they are playing in my sewing room.

  12. I just finished 3 "burrito-style" (french seam) Halloween print pillowcases for my grandkids. They put them on their beds and at Halloween will use them to put their trick-or-treat candy in! They just loved them.

  13. I'll be making a costume for my husband and likely for my son as well.

  14. That is just cute .. I am making my yongest Granddaughter one ! Thanks !!! for the idea .. Right now I am working on Halloween items (I am behind this year !)

  15. I was going to sew my kids costumes and also their treat bags. I already got my costume done! Trying to be proactive so I'm not scrambling like most years!

  16. I'm not making any costumes this year. I'm working on the girl's bedroom quilts.

  17. I have to hand stitch my binding on a Halloween wall hanging. I can't believe I got it done before October!! Thanks for the giveaway.
