What I Made for Christmas - #3

Morning all.

Still wading through all the projects I made (sorry). today's one...I definitely went out of my comfort zone. Our delightful Miss Pippa celebrated her first Christmas with us. At Christmas she was 7 months. Please excuse a massive Aunty moment, but I have to share this picture of her in her dress.....too cute.

Now only being 7 months old, and Aunty Lynda wanting to still MAKE her something special for thinking cap went on....and sadly nearly fried....LOL!!! I got some inspiration from Nicole Derendorf. She works with fabric a fair bit and has used her dies to cut material. So with all that on board.....I came up with these......

.....and the 2 of them together.....

I must say I was delighted as to how they turned out and must thank Nicole for her counsel and guidance. Now of course Miss Pippa's Mum loved them too and she modelled one of them straight away.....

Thanks for dropping by. More Christmas ideas in the way. Perhaps you may be inspired for something for 2012??

Stuff used:
Fabric and Buttons from Hobbysew
Headbands purchased fm store
Dies: SU Fun Flowers Bigz L Die and Bigz Butterfly Die

Your niece is very cute and your homemade headbands look very swish, great idea using the dies to cut the flowers and butterfly.
Great pics,
