Wedding Bits and a Swirly Skirt.

 All busy busy round my house this week. 
My No2 son is getting married and I am
so excited for him and his Fiance.
They are a great couple and it's so nice 
to see the excitement as they make plans for their life together. 
Lots to be done for the parents though. 
Me, I had the small job of making the Bombeniere
and I enjoyed it heaps. The brides parents have heaps to do, 
as the wedding is in a very pretty park with the 
small reception at the brides house afterwoods.

I thought I would show you these cute little skirts
I made them a little while back for my two precious daughters...
 I made 3 of them, all in a weekend.
One as a birthday present for a little girlfriend in blues..
Using the Moda Bakeshop pattern Here.. 
and made using Jelly roll strips...
 So easy to make and they look fabulous. 
Can you tell the colors they love.
One purple and one pink.
 Might have to make a few more for next year.
 Happy stitching
 Hugs Dawn x x x

I've been making some dresses for my little one and I searched through the Bakeshop for some patterns the other day and I'm going to make her one of those skirts too :)
Yours look so sweet. My favourite colour is purple too like one of your little dears :)

Hoping not to look stupid, what is bombeniere? The skirts are absolutely adorable, I can just imagine how sweet the girls look in them! A wedding in a park - that sounds just beautiful!

Dawn what a lovely photo of the wedding bits. I love the white and silver together and those tiny daisy cut outs are beautiful. No wonder you are all excited if this is what you are surrounded by.

The tiny hula skirts are gorgeous :>) I can imagine two young glam girls parading about in them :>) I definitely think they will be trend setters.
Can't wait to hear more about the wedding.
Thinking of you.
