A Little Girl Project

With Ian starting school this month, it seems like most of the projects I have been doing have been either with him or for him. A few days ago, I decided I needed to have a special project with just Brynnie. While shopping one day, she fell in love with a headband that had a large flower on it. Now, I'm not that girlie, but she is, so I considered buying it. Until I saw the price, that is. Sorry, but I'm not spending five bucks on a hairband for a two-year-old. So we went home and did a project instead.

I traced flower shapes and circles onto some pink felt I had, cut them out, and found some little clips stashed in the bathroom drawer. Brynnie glued the pieces together and then I sewed on a button in the middle.

Voila! She was thrilled with her flowers and I was thrilled with the price.

So cute!
Yes, that little one-to-one time with the nonschooling child is important I am learning more and more.
(Love the sweatshirt she's wearing - great for camping!)

Very cute. She's learning to be a do-it-yourselfer, just like her mommy.
