Love Is All Around

This weekend I have been working on three sweet skirts for three sweet girls. My own bug and bug's cousins Miss R and Miss C.

I wanted to do something nice for my girls for their upcoming Valentine's Day parties at school so I decided to make them all skirts. I love Valentine's Day because of all the pink and red, a few of my favorite colors.

My bug is in love with Olivia the pig and her Valentines for school are Olivia themed. I wanted to make her a skirt to wear to her party out of this amazing Olivia fabric that I found on etsy. I used the last of my black polka dot fabric for the ruffles and I think it was a nice touch. I love the way it turned out and later I am going to make her some hair bows to go with it.

For Miss R. I found this great Littlest Pet Shop fabric on clearance at Wal-Mart. Miss R. loves the pet shop pets and I love this fabric because it is pink with yellow hearts all over. I added a little green ruffle on it to give it some twirl power.

Last but not least I worked on this cupcake skirt for Miss C. I have had this fabric laying around for a year waiting for the right time to use it. I love how it came out and the polka dot ruffle completes it perfectly.

I love how they all came out and the girls loved them too. I like making original skirts like this because in a small town with limited options you always run into someone else who has what you have but these are one of a kind.

Also, I wanted to share with you all my mom's Valentine's Day tree. She picked up this little pink tree on clearance last Christmas and every holiday it is decorated to the nines to celebrate the holiday. Here is her Valentine's one and I adore it. Mom has such a talent for decorating trees and wreaths. I love that lady!

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great week and stop by later this week. I should have some new items to share with you. :)
