Last-Minute Birthday Gifts!

First of all I wanted to pass on a fun little challenge that my blogging friend, Crys is having! Basically, she's looking for people to send in their craft ideas that they don't have time to finish, and if she chooses yours, she'll make it herself, and then send it to you! Have someone else do your projects for free? Yes, please! I might just have to send her some ideas of my own! :o) Check out her post about it here.


Secondly :o)
A little girl from church had her sixth birthday party today and Paige and I were invited! And, being the pathological procrastinator that I am, I woke up this morning at 5:30 (4 hours before the party started!), and started making the gift. :o) I thought I would pass on a few photos of what I came up with!

I've been meaning to make Paige some dress up things, and I thought it would be a fun gift idea, too!

I made a little tutu, using 4 different lengths of tulle, and this skirt tutorial.

A little headband made of elastic and hand-stitched felt flowers.
(that "red" felt is bright pink, silly camera)

A little felt flower ring.

And a wand of felt flowers and ribbon, with an old fake flower stem wrapped in ribbon.

She was adorable in it!

Such a sweet little birthday girl!

Felt and tulle always save the day, don't they?

    Age is wide spread on this idea too! A 10 year old I know jumps at the opportunity to play dress up with my 3 YO, as does her 20 something Aunt ;)

  25. This is the perfect gift for any little princess. I love how mind works. God gave you an extra dose of creativity when he made you. Praise God for His workmanship. You are wonderfully and marvelously made.

  26. Love it! But I have a question--can you just cut felt like that with regular pinking shears, you do you have to have super-sharp ones? I guess I could just go try it...

    ReplyDelete

  32. You just gave me an idea to create a network of shops all over US providing last minute gifts, it will be very profitable, because almost everyone is forgetting gifts :)
