{ Lots of Rain = Lots of Crafting }

With all the rain going on here, it's been fun to stay inside {remember, I melt} & get to my "I want to try & make that" list. I've been wanting to make hair things for my girls so, I tried making these fluttery fabric flowers first {try saying that 5 times fast}.
I didn't want to spend any money so, I just used whatever I had in my stash of fabric & craft supplies. I found the directions for the flowers above here.

These felt flowers are way cute. I only made one, though. You can find the directions here.

And then, I've been dying to try the cute little felt clips that I've seen out there. I tried to think of things my girls would like & started sketching pictures.

I came up with 4 for Boo...Shamu {her favorite}, a sun {she's a Sunbeam now}, a "K" for her name & a self portrait.

Here's Boo with herself in her hair. That sounds so weird, but she thinks it cool.

And just so you know what a nerd I am, I made 2 Star Wars themed one's for me...

Yoda & Princess Leia. And, no, I didn't make them into clips for my hair. They are pushpins. :)

I got the idea when I googled Star Wars coloring pages for my kids a while ago. I am so nerdy!

Oh my gosh, these are the cutest things. I can't believe you drew them yourself and didn't print them on the computer!
