Here's one of my pet peeves... Emerson can be wearing a pink outfit and is wrapped in a girly pink blanket and people still ask if my baby is a boy or girl. I decided that it was time to add yet another girly item to her attire-- headbands! I looked at ALL the options on Etsy-- there's some really cute ones out there-- but I wasn't about to pay 10 to 15 bucks plus shipping. So... why not figure out how to make them myself? The cutest ones had little fabric rosettes, so one day this week while the kids were napping I decided have a rosette making party until I figured out how to make them. After much trial and error, I finally mastered the technique!
Guess what I made them out of... a couple of my old T shirts that I had been planning on shipping off to MCC. I used the sleeves to make the headband, and then cut a bunch of different sized circles to make the rosette. After attaching it to the headband and a bit of hand sewing you have the cutest little headband. A FREE headband! This one took me about 15 minute to make from start to finish. I plan on making many more in the near future.
Thanks for the cute headband mom! You're the best... wink wink :)
On to another topic. Snow. Or should I say "snow"-- the stuff we got this morning was pretty wussy. But Caleb thought it was the real deal-- I've got a city boy on my hands!
Watching it snow this morning got me excited to set up my tree... is it too early?
When do you all take the plunge and decorate for Christmas?
So far, all I've got up is my wreath :)
And yes, my front door is purple.
