Crafty Nesting!

When I found out what I was having I listed a few of the benefits of having yet another girl. Well I have been working on one of them. Cute bows! My kids tend to come out with large heads, so headbands are a very cute necessity. With Rachael and Kindyl I made most of them myself. With Brenley I had my very talented sister Jannalee make them for me. She just has the knack for bows. With the trend of using flowers these days, I thought I would give it a shot myself this time.

Here are my first attempts. I am not shying away from the big flowers that you see out there, but these are smaller ones that I can use right when she is born.

I love being able to use the flat backed crystals on them. Back when my older kids were little, we didn't bling up our bows up like we do now. I think it adds a nice little flair.

Of course I still had Jannalee make me some staples. She has to have some good old fashioned bows! I love the Halloween one! It is like a little costume in and of itself. Black shirt and pants, and you're done. So cute!

This is the wipes case I made at Super Saturday. My kids are very impressed, and they each want one of their own! It is a cute idea that I never would have come up with on my own. All I did was a little cutting and pasting (the extent of my talent;). All babies need a little bling when they get a diaper change, right?;)

4 people know I love comments!:
