Bug Skirt Tutorial

Quick and easy bug skirt tutorials for both kids and Ubooly (can easily be tweaked to fit other stuffed animals).


  • Main skirt fabric red mine was 44″x 10″ (T is 6.5 and L is turning 5 this month)
  • Band fabric 8 pieces 5″ x 6″ I did 2 of each color
  • Cricut Iron-on Vinyl
  • Cricut Cutting Machine my images are from the Garden Soup and the Live Simply cartridges in Cricut Craft room
  • Elastic for waist I used 20″ of 1/2″ elastic


  • Sew the band pieces together along the 5″ sides making a long strip.
  • Sew the strip to the bottom edge of the main skirt fabric.
  • Sew up the sides.
  • Finish the hem and make a casing for the elastic at the top of the skirt.
  • Cut images out of vinyl the bugs were about 2 inches tall for the kid sized skirt. Remember if your image is directional to do the mirror image before you cut. Place the vinyl plastic side DOWN on the cutting mat and use the vinyl or kiss cut setting. Weed images and cut apart.
  • Arrange vinyl with the plastic side up on the band and hold iron for 5-10 seconds on each image repeating as necessary until fully attached. Repeat for all images.
  • Pull off the protective plastic covering. Lay a piece of fabric on top of each image and press through the fabric one more time.
  • String the elastic in the casing and sew shut and you’re good to go.
