Valentine's Day Sunday & Homemade Skirts

Hope everyone is having a fab Valentines Day!

I decided at about 9 pm last night that I wanted to make Syd & I skirts for Valentines day. So I scraped together some fabric & used this tutorial, I mentioned before, to make them.

Syd loved her skirt & Berto got to rock his cool tie Grandma made him. She has made him one for each holiday & this was his Valentine's Day one. Skulls, roses, & blood- he LOVES it.

You are amazing! The skirts turned out so cute! My hubby makes fun of me because I want to match (or look like we might match) with the kiddo's.
Love the skirts!

Way to go on the skirts! And, I love the doorway in the background. Where are you at?

Olivia Carter said...

Brooke- I'm not really a matchy person but it ended up not TOO matchy, & cute.

Kristie- Ah, you're nice. Valentines Day is one of those holidays where you can match or be cheesey and it's okay!

Sandi- Oh, glad you like it! It's actually at the Tabernacle in Provo. We had Stake Conference there today.
