I decided to make the Birthday Party Trio on page 2.
The first thing you will want to do is choose your fabrics and trims. I love the contrast of color. I chose pink and green. Riley Blake Designs has these wonderful chevrons, ombre solids and ombre dots. They also have beautiful bright colors in ribbons to match all their basics.
Instead of the bow on the side of the skirt I made a rose out of a 2 1/2" strip of the ombre solid. I cut the strip 2 1/2" x 22".
Press wrong sides together along the long edge of the strip. Round the corners by trimming off the square edge. This will take away the excess bulk on the corners. Using a double threaded needle, do a running stitch about 1/4" from the raw edges.
Once you have finished your running stitch, start to roll the strip inwards to create your rose.
Sew some stitches back and forth across the back to keep the rose in the desired shape.
You can either pin or stitch the rose in place.
I love the ombre effect of the color going from light to dark on the rose.
At the side of the skirt I took the top layer and did a running stitch to gather the side. Then I stitched the rose in place.
The Birthday Party Trio was so quick and simple.

I love creating and surrounding myself with beautiful things. The creating process in which those things become beautiful is where I love to be. I love quilting, gardening, cooking, traveling, reading, scrap booking, refinishing furniture and spending time with my favorite people, my husband and our four children.
