Handmade Hair clip holders

My new found craze is making these hair clip holders- a very practical gift for little girls' birthdays/ their birthday return gifts. Am sure every girl would need this to manage the vast array of hair clips they treasure.



These are made with Cardboard and some easily available materials...........ideas inspired by the net. 
Just type in your search and there are loads of DIY videos for inspiration. If you got a little girl....just give it a try and am sure she'll love it in her room!!

Thanks always for stopping by,

An Owl's Story

A short story telling today.

Once upon a time a little girlie had three little owls



These darling baby owlies had no Mamma. One day the Little girl's Mom, made her a big fabric owl.

(Pattern and inspiration from: Sew Little Fabric Blog)


And the Little girl called it the "Mamma owl".................so the three little owlies got a Mamma and a nest.


Happy little girlie.....happy little owlies and a Very
Happy Mamma!!!

This is the second of my sewing ventures (First one Fabric Birdie). Am currently hand sewing....its time taking but am enjoying. I hope to learn machine sewing some time soon. 

About the pattern: Its a very easy to follow kind of pattern. Simple design, hand stitching took me about an hour. I used some scrap fabrics at home, matched and stitched them up. I used some big sized buttons for the eyes.
The design if used in its actual dimensions makes a small owl, may be the size of an adult palm. So if one plans to use the design please enlarge and use accordingly. Its a fun project to make and i think the finished owlie looks cute!! Will be repeating this project in more interesting fabrics and definitely make a bigger one next time. 



Thanks for stopping by....as always.

New crafts and Season's Greetings!!

Its a quick post....so just photos!!


This Fabric Bird Pattern is inspired from the web world. pattern is from Spool free bird pattern.
I used up old Fabric as am an amateur sewer,i hand sew this. I choose a kind of difficult fabric and it didn't hold the stitches well, so may not be a perfect shape, but for a beginner like me..... i loved the way it looks when finished.....and am sure to do more birdies in some interesting fabrics. Its a very easy pattern and looks lovely when done.


My Last minute decision to put-up some Christmas colors in my 2yr old Daughter's room. She helped me too and we put it up in 2hrs last nite....shez enjoying peeping into her room to see those stars glittering and am enjoying looking at the smile on her face!!

 

We did the tree with some wire, green tissue paper and ready scrapbook punches and supplies on hand. Also can be spotted are my ear-rings hung up as tree ornaments!!


 

This is a 10yr old stuffed snow man i learnt from a cousin of mine...its always been my favorite and he gets to come out once a year....and so you can see him smiling!!

Thanks for all those who stop by to view my posts.
Wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Joyous new Year Ahead!!
