My older kids were invited to birthday parties recently. I went to some of my favorite tutorials for inspiration.
The first gift was whipped up in 20 minutes. My son was invited to his friend's 10th birthday celebration, and I forgot until right before it was time to go.
Made with Anna's Lil Cutie tutorial, and stuffed with extra Halloween candy. Bonus! Fabric scraps from my boys' 2009 Christmas jammies.
For my daughter's friend, I made some hair accessories. First up, a headband using Cally's Easy Headband Tutorial.
I also made clippies, a new design I came up with:
Ruffled flowers, made from gathered ribbon and a yellow button for the center. Sewn onto green felt with snappy clips tucked inside. This tutorial from A Hoot and a Holler was helpful on making snappy clips.
