Sew Happy


20130204-104914.jpg

I’ve decided to take up the daunting skill of sewing. My first project is a “botanical tiara” for my 5-yr-olds upcoming princess ball. Found a book with some simple gift ideas to sew and one is this really elegant floral tiara. The instructions called for ultra suede (fabric store didn’t have it and could not help me figure out an alternative). I decided on felt.

I am happy to report success for the first 3 flowers. Lily certainly seems pleased. I can’t wait to see how she looks in her fairy garden princess gown in a week.

I also hope she treasures this gift of love.

Here’s to the start of a cool hobby!

  1. Oh no — I can’t see the picture! Congrats on completing a project, though. The sewing machine can be awfully daunting, but you did it!! I’m so eager to see pictures of Lily in her dress and tiara! 🙂
