Well hello again! It's been such a long time, I've missed you! The last couple weeks have just been very busy with family activities! None of which involved crafting. BUT, I did get to have lunch with my son's scout troop, spend the night with my daughter at a church sleepover, have my nieces visit for the weekend, and go out to dinner with 20 of our friends!
Anyway. I do have a couple of really cool things
I want to do that I haven't even started yet in the works. One easy little project I did manage to complete recently were these hair clips, thanks to the endless source of inspiration that is Pinterest.
I started with my fabric scrap pile:
I picked out some colorful springy patterns, then used pinking shears to cut out different sized circles. (Ever wonder where that funny name "pinking" shears comes from? I do. I think I will investigate & do an update post. You just wait!)
At first I tried to make the circles as perfect as possible by using a compass. But then I decided they would look better "not so perfect," so I just eyeballed it. (Much easier anyway!!!)
Then I stitched them together in the middle with a button:
And it was all downhill from there...very quick & easy:
Here in Iowa, we've had a very mild winter (I actually miss the snow!) but I'm tired of the ugly brown-ness everywhere. This is one step in my path toward Springtime! Yippee!
