Crafty

I am obsessed with pinterest and all the wonderful, crafty things that now fill my project lists. It's astounding to me what I COULD be doing if I had the time (making my own laundry detergent, creating headboards out of old wood, creating dresses out of old t-shirts, and the list goes on and on). But one thing I am obsessed with that I feel I could spend thousands of dollars on are hair-bows. After seeing a million and one (that last one was the one that set me over the edge...ha!) tutorials on how to create hair-bows, I set off to learn how to make a felt flower hair-bow and headband. I've made Isabella hair-bows before, but the ones I made were always pre-made flowers that I just hand-sewed to elastic.

First I made a purple one.


Then I made the yellow one that Izzy wore for her 38 Week Picture.

I also made a tiny purple one (with a different type of flower) that I'm going to add to a barrette, but I don't have a barrette yet.
I got the headband elastic's from the dollar store (8 for $1).
While this is certainly less dangerous than spending $10 on a headband everytime I want one for an outfit, I'm thinking this is going to become a dangerous obsession in terms of time (I see a matching hairbow for every single outfit of hers...).
