Fluoro Week: Twirly Skirts

A couple of cheery cousins cavorting in a couple of cute skirts.
(Tutorial here)
This fluoro orange skirt (unworn except for modelling purposes) will be auctioned off in the next few months to raise money for charity. Stay tuned!

Fluoro Week: Ombre Fabric Chandelier

White with a pop of neon was the brief for my sister's baby shower.

Above the all white table of food she wanted a fabric chandelier centre piece. My sister let me choose, create and then surprise her with the final product. I began by cutting out circles of three different sizes, from three different fabrics, for each of the three different colours. Then folded each circle in quarters and pressed them. Finally, I thread them onto fluoro twine from a hardware store, making a knot underneath each circle and hung the strings through an embroidery hoop.

This would look beautiful in pastels, or neutrals, or primary colours too! But I love this style in it's neon colours, and it now hangs happily in baby Arden's nursery.

Fluoro Week: Weekend Bag

She doesn't go on many weekends away.
It's a shame because this bag is the perfect size for it.
(Perhaps we should, just so that she can use it?)

Instead it is her ballet bag. It fits three pair of shoes, two skirts, shorts, leotard, tights, hairbrush, hairspray, lunchbox, and a drink bottle, and still manages to look much smaller than the tote bags carried by the other prima-in-training girls.
I would love to share a pattern but I made this one up as I went along.
 Yes, un-choreographed!
