Hair Dos and How Tos

DIY Ring Pin Cushion

Today is my grandmother’s birthday, she would have been ninety years old. My gramma, as I’ve mentioned in the past, was very talented with a needle and thread. She was a big quilter, and she was always willing to drop what she was working on to help me hem my pants (she said every petite…

No-Sew Doll Cast

On Monday night we found out that my friend Tara’s three-and-a-half year old daughter, Molly, broke her arm and needed surgery. Luckily, her surgery went smoothly and she was discharged from the hospital the next morning. While there’s never a good time to break a bone, summertime certainly has to be the worst. Because she needed…

DIY Cover Up

Annie loves the hooded towel I made her, but she needed something she could wear to/from the pool or beach that kept her warm while giving her a little coverage. I searched around for a simple cover up that would also help her dry off, but didn’t find anything that I was wild about. I…

Easy DIY Hooded Towel

Just like last year, I have Annie signed up for a full summer of swim lessons. She started this week and I was pleasantly surprised to see that while she was definitely rusty, after three lessons she seems to be almost back to where she was at the end of last summer. Annie’s lessons are first…

DIY Baby Onesie To Shirt

DIY Adult T-Shirt To Girl’s Dress

When I ordered my Wonder Woman shirt for Annabel’s birthday party, the company sent me the wrong size. They immediately sent me a new one, but told me I could keep the old one. “Do something fun with it,” the guy on the phone told me. It was too small for me, but too big for…

DIY Stuffed Kid’s Crown

Annie has lots of plastic and paper crowns but she’s rough on them – as she should be, she’s a kid. I wanted to make a crown for her that not only lasts longer than any of her others (I think our record is three minutes), but is also comfortable and will grow with her. With…

DIY Hair Bow (Of Hair!)

Sometimes Annie throws requests at me when I’m styling her hair. She’ll shout out stuff like, “I want school hair!” “I want monster hair!” “I want baby princess hair!” I have fun coming up with different styles to match what she’s asked for. This bow was the result of, “I want Minnie Mouse hair!” It’s…
