Are you using one of the patterns from Culler Creations to make a Snow Skirt? 

This tutorial will take you through the steps to create a great double pocket for your skirt. 

You can add your own touch to the pocket by adding trim. 

Be creative!

Step 1:

Supplies needed:
Two 9 inch square of ripstop nylon
Two 2 inch squares of ripstop nylon
One zipper - longer than 9 inches
Thread to match your ripstop nylon
Rotary cutter
Wonder Tape (1/4 inch double sided tape)
Zipper foot (optional)
Snow Skirt - What a brilliant idea! Though I'm from the mid-Atlantic east coast, where it should NEVER be less than 10 -20 with the wind chill, I remember many uncomfortably cold mornings waiting on an elevated platform for the subway to school. This would have been a God-send!
Thanks for your comment. I actually grew up in Maryland and can also remember waiting at a cold bus stop! I hardly leave the house in the winter here without my snow skirt and there certainly does not have to be snow on the ground to benefit from the warmth!
<p>Great instructable, great idea! Just one idea/question. Instead of using two big squares, can't you use one rectangle? Sew the zipper to both ends of the rectangle, just like you did, fold in flat, finish the sides. It would eliminate the bottom seam and since there wouldn't be a shorter and longer piece, you wouldn't have to cut off the extra. Do you know what I mean? </p>
<p>Yes, you could do it that way. Good idea. I'll give that a try. thanks!</p>
<p>I thought some more about that idea - of a rectangle. It would work, but would meant that when you attach the rectangle to the second side of the zipper you would be sewing in a tube. With a large rectangle that would work; for one this size I think it might be challenging! </p>
