Kathy's 10-minute Build-a-Bear skirt: Cut a strip of fabric approximately 7 1/2 by 24 inches. (Or use a fat quarter and make the width about 22 inches. The bear won't care if her skirt isn't quite so full.) Make a casing for elastic on one long edge. Hem the other long edge. Cut a piece of elastic 12 inches long and insert through casing. Stitch the back seam.
