Two Projects from the Weekend
This weekend I went to the baby shower for a good friend's future grandbaby. Her son is in the Army so I thought it would be fun to make some camo-bibs for the little girl. You can learn more about these bibs from the first time I made them.
On Sunday afternoon, I made these ribbon trees with the girls. Mine is the middle tree, their trees flank mine. Fawnda at Fireflies and Jellybeans has a good tutorial for these. The girls used straight pins to attach their ribbon. I used hot glue.
I made a serious mistake when I made these with the girls I sat criss-cross applesauce on the floor. On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving our whole family found itself watching YouTube videos (we watched silly videos like Ray Stephens, Homer and Jethro, the Royal Gaurdsman etc). I sat criss-cross applesauce on the floor with K (who ways over fifty pounds) on my lap. I stretched something out of shape and aggravated it again on Sunday when I made these trees! :) I guess I am getting old.
P.S. The Styrofoam trees were from Dollar Tree. The straight pins and most of the white ribbon was from my stash (I bought a couple of rolls of white/off-white gross grain at Dollar Tree. I wish I hadn't, I didn't need them).
I will be sharing this at:
