The watercoloring books this time were a huge hit too of course Grandma knew they’d be
*ps. please ignore our grungy attire and the fact that there is a ladder in our kitchen- the package arrived on Saturday which is our family workin day
So we got to have an early fun Christmas Present this year! I had my Ultrasound apt. on the 21st and they are 99% sure that it’s a …………….
So I’m still just chugging away at making things– I’ve been in a really creative mood lately so that has helped I may even attempt to get out my sewing machine today and make Brynley’s dress– may being the key word there- I still haven’t forgotten how much I didn’t enjoy sewing the crayon roll-
Anyways– I found this cute dress for Brynley at Target– actually she found it and was so excited about it and trying it on– so I bought it– sneakily– and planned on giving it to her for Christmas but it just needed something to go with it I felt to make it a special dress for her– so originally I was going to make a braclet for her but than I just decided to go with making a flower headband to match the dress since she seems to really like her other similar headbands.
It was easy and fun and I was able to finish it while she was at joy school one morning. I even made another one for the dress that I might eventually sew
1-So first off I bought some ugly headbands at wally world for cheap I think 6 for like $3 or so but they were all the wrong color so I just painted them and to make it slightly shiny I actually spray painted a clear protective gloss over it.
2- Than I went to work drawing and cutting out little flowers from some scrap satin fabric— I cut out ten flowers and than gently pulled on the edges to give them the frayed look— (I’m sure if you didn’t want the frayed look you could easily burn the edges to keep it from fraying)
