Yeah! I got started on my challenge today. The hard part is where to start. What to sew what fabric to use. So I reached for this cute book that I’ve had, but really haven’t sewn from yet.
My other problem is a lot of times when I do sew for my own girl, she doesn’t want to wear what I’ve made. So I decided to make a little something for my girl and her friends.
School is almost out in the kindergarten class and there are four girls graduating in June. So I decided to make a little gift for each of them!
This is a good little pattern. It takes only a little bit of fabric. Maybe a half of a fat quarter size.
I also ran over to my local thrift and found this neat tool to turn those narrow pieces of fabric right side out. Only $2. Does any one know what this tool actually is? Let me know if you do. It worked pefectly.
Well here she is, all smiles. Complete with oreo cookie crumbs on her face. One of those is actually a beautiful little freckle!
Maybe I should have brushed her hair first! She went right for this red headband. And I was thinking she would scoop up the pink colored headband for herself. Full of surprises.
This pattern was super easy. I did adjust it a bit and shorten the length, since it was a little loose. I would like to make these again. Maybe using handkerchiefs.
And since I did make four headbands, I sewed for more than an hour today. Which feels so good, right? Challenge met for day one.
