These Hot Air Balloons were floating in my mind for months. The Pastel balloons I sewed up back in April were lovely, but not quite right. Visions of lemon sherbet, fairy floss and confetti swirled around my laptop. I was inspired by rows of little Macarons in posh patisseries, slowed down by endless summer school break but determined to finish them before I started out on the next pattern and now… they are done. And I LOVE them. I don’t often say that about things that I’ve made. I really hope you like them too.
