I just had to share these because I thought they turned out so cute. My friend is the brains behind the idea, so I must give her the creative credit. Her husband and best friend are getting ready to run their first half-marathon this weekend, and she wanted something cute for the kiddos to wear to the race. This is what we came up with, her brain and my craftiness. Even a cute little matching felt hair clip for her daughter :-).
One of my friends posted this in her facebook this morning. I was so impressed I had to share! Here is the idea, 365 days. 365 items of clothing. 365 dollars. And she is blogging the whole way through! AMAZING! You should see some of the refashions she has done! I can't wait to catch up on all of them and see what else she is going to make! So FUN!!
Ok, so getting ready yesterday and I needed something to jazz up my outfit. So, into my craft room I went to see what I could come up with. 10 minutes later and... wah-la! Seriously, SO SO easy!! Brief little run through of how to make your own.
You will need: ribbon, felt, hot glue, sewing machine (or needle and thread), and a headband.
First, cut your ribbon to about 24 inches long (longer if you want a fuller flower). Using your sewing machine make a running stitch down the edge of one side. Next gently pull on the thread to gather your ribbon into a ruffle.
Cut a 3 inch circle out of felt to use as your base. Take your ruffle, and starting on the outside of the circle start hot gluing the ruffle around the circle. Coil the ruffle around so that each layer covers of the stitching of the previous layer. Keeping coiling and gluing until you reach the center. You can either just fold the corner under and be done, or add an embellishment to the center.
Next, I measured my head band and glued ribbon to the headband. There is probably a much "classier" way to do this, but like I said, it took me 10 minutes :-) Then I just hot glued the flower to the side of the headband. Finished!
