(stay tuned to see what we're going to do with the rest of them)
Sunday afternoon, my kid declared that she needed something a little festive for the 4th. She was playing w/ my craft supplies and thought it would be fun to make ribbon stripes and button stars. I didn't think it would look that great and tried to talk her out of it, but I was wrong and it turned out adorable.
Step 1: Lay out your ribbons on your shirt and pin them in place.
Step 2: Sew the first one day and watch it pucker and look horrible-try hard not to swear
Step 3: Pick out first stripe
Step 3: Cut fusible webbing into strips and iron on the back of each ribbon
Step 4: Repeat Step 1
Step 5: Sew into place and appreciate the wonder that is fusible webbing
Step 6: Sew on all the buttons
Step 7: Admire your work
Step 7: Make a matching headband (I didn't invent this, but I just wrap fabric strips around a pipe-cleaner and twist. Then I hot-glue a felt circle on the back. I then get another felt circle and sandwich the 2 on either side of a head band. Then I cut a pipe cleaner in half and made 2 smaller flowers for each side)
How cute is she?
