Fairy Skirt and Top

My little one has been begging me to make matching skirts for her and her cousin. One's favorite color is yellow and the other one's is purple. I found this super-sweet fairy fabric (in both colors!!) at my local quilt shop, added some ribbon that I bought months ago because it was "so cute," made some puffy flower pins and done!

It took forever to come up with a design idea for the top that wouldn't compete with the ribbon trim - I think the flowers are just right and I love that they can be moved around!

I love the puffy flower pins! How did you make them?

Thanks everyone! I made "yo-yo's" and stuffed them instead of leaving them flat. I flipped them over and sewed them very tightly together. Sewed a felt circle on the back to cover everthing and added a pin-back. Hope that makes sense! :)

Sooo cute!! I love that you made them matching--but still accenting each one's fav color. Very nice work (and the pins ARE the perfect touch, so sweet!)
