Most trouble, least sewing skirt

Hello all,
I've just finished sewing the skirt that has given me the most trouble, but has the least amount of sewing... I think less than 1 metre of sewing all up. How? Raffia... my new nemesis!
I just hope Hula Bob is happy with his new skirt and can get back to his job of wobbling at my fellow motorists from the back parcel shelf of my car. :0)

If you'd like to find out how to turn 20 metres of raffia into something you can hold in one hand, head over to my blog, Crimson Gardenia
