June in our house means Celebrations! In this month alone we celebrate birthdays for my husband, daughter and niece, our wedding anniversary, and Father's Day... plus dance recitals and end-of-school-year events. By the time we reach my birthday in July, I'm partied out.
But for now I am having fun creating special gifts for so many loved ones. For example, what little girl doesn't need a cute little red and white polka dot skirt... just like Minnie Mouse.
But wait. What's that peeking out?
A pink Minnie Mouse skirt. That's right... two skirts in one... a fully reversible skirt. But I admit, I am partial to the red side.
This is a basic circle skirt. Dana has a great tutorial on her blog MADE. I was inspired by You and Mie's Reversible Circle Skirt entry in Project Run & Play. In fact, I loved her entry so much that it has inspired me to make one for my daughter's Fall wardrobe. This may be my new favorite way to make a circle skirt. I love using the bias tape instead of hemming the circle. And the peep of color underneath is such a fun detail.
I love this gift... paired with a simple white shirt and a little flower for the birthday girl's hair.
Do you have a busy gift season? What are some of your favorite gifts?
