Every year I make Grace a skirt for Valentines Day. (Remember last year I made her the All You Need is Love Skirt and then later I made her the Love Me Two Times Skirt.) Well, this year I wanted to combine the felt from the first skirt with the cotton skirt of the second one and I came up with this: The Love is in the Air Skirt.
It is a simple elastic waistband skirt made of cotton fabric with felt pieces that I held in place with fabric glue and then embroidered around with a running stitch.
It was simple and fun to make.
And if you want to make one you can print out the template for the hot air balloon and the clouds HERE.
Now I wish I could say that Grace just loves this skirt. But, she doesn’t.
She says it makes her “too high up” (since the skirt looks like the sky) and makes her “tip over”.
So as of right now I’m not sure we’ll be keeping this skirt…it may just end up in the etsy shop…and I’ll go back to the drawing board.
Friday is the first day of February and over on Project Run and Play the theme for the week is Valentine inspired wear…it should be a good one. Head on over there and check it out.
(And I’ll just stay here and figure out a skirt that won’t make Grace “so dizzy”.)
