As always...my sister in law knows...I love 'trash'... she politely hints me...I may 'keep' any of those 'giveways' if I found them 'useful'. Yup, you bet I did! This old non woven bag caught my attention...Can you see what I see? Well, as the saying 'beauty in the eye of beholders'...The texture of the dark brown part looks so 'pretty' to me... Come see closer...
So, immediately ...I 'Cut n Keep' them...
Since the size of the material is not very big, so I used to wrap up
some black hair clips I bought for Jojo.
And this is how...Don't worry...absolutely easy and no messy!
At first, I trace the shape of the hair clip and cut out the material...
I love this non woven material so much..easy to cut and no fraying,
can be handle just like a felt material....but this is $0!!!
|Remember to cut a small opening for the clip at the back|
and insert it before you start to stitch the side
|Keep about 1/8" seam allowance|
I apply plain blanket stitch around the open edge
This is how it looks like at the edge
I used pink thread so you can see clearly in the photo...
For the actual piece I made for Jojo, I used the same dark brown thread.
The good thing about wrapping the hair clip up is now
you can easily embellish it by gluing, sewing, painting.....etc.
Now, how should I embellish this one for Jojo...
Buttons? Ribbon? Pom Pom? Beads?
Let's try something different...
Sorry, this is my very first attemp to hand-stitch word.( I know it looks bad!)
Why the trouble?
Because that's how I want Jojo to be...
"Happy" when she saw this and wear it!
Have a Happy day!
Because it's your choice to be happy today!
