I have always had a fascination with Hot Air Balloons, in fact, it is one of the many things on my Bucket List. A Hot Air Balloon Ride.

While I was coming up with ideas for the Scrap Your Stash challenge over at Living with Punks, I started making a scrappy bodice…and everything else kind of flowed from there…

After all, I think the number one use for scraps tends to be interfaced pieces. And why not Hot Air Balloons? They are so fun and whimsical!

With a little inspiration from Shwin & Shwin’s Painting the Roses Red tutorial, I grabbed a fabric marker and decided to make my own cloud skirt! I am not a great artist, but a little free-flowing cloud couldn’t be that hard…right?

I love the way this came out, and I think you will too!

Happy Sewing!
