A blog I really enjoy reading is this one, I'm not ready to take the challenge yet, but love seeing what people can do. I particulalry liked this post, I read it and went, yeah, that's a cool idea. Then I was in Kmart saw a Bonds one for $22! A 2nd hand Country Road one was also $22, so when I remembered this post, I got the patterns. It reminds me of the baby dresses from men's t-shirts-(I have a few friends buying me t-shirts now to make gifts). Maybe these will be as popular?
Am taking little miss to a party today, I am in a dilemma for gifts. All my friends know they get handmade, and love it, but when you don't know the parent (a day care friend whose mum I have never met) and are told by your nearly 5 yr old "she only likes Bratz and make up" it's a bit tricky. I ended up make a flower brooch and some covered hairclips like these. I also bought a jar of beads to make Princess bracelets/necklaces- $15 reduced to $3.50 at Spotlight! I almost went Bratz, but decided that's not me, I have to be true to my self and at least the bought thing is something to make. (I do remember, though, that this is the child who got a bead stuck up her nose at day care a few months ago and needed the hospital- eek!)
Any one else have that problem? I guess it's about keeping up with the Jones's, the older I get the more I rebel against it. Another week till my birthday, another year older and more rebelling, bring it on haha.
