Happy first day of spring, folks!! We're getting off to a wet start here in northern California this year, the old saying I learned in elementary school is definitely holding true so far... March blows in like a lion, and out like a lamb. It's been unbelievably windy and rainy here the past few days, but I don't mind so much. It's nice & cozy here in the new house.
So, here's a wee pretty I whipped up for a pal a little while ago. It was simple & fun and only took about an hour, probably less if I'd been focused. I think I was watching a movie when I made this... Little crafties that can be made during a movie are the best, wouldn't you agree?
Her pictures are prettier than mine, I think. Pop over here to take a peek.
I used a Heather Baily pattern I picked up at The Top Stitch, in Spokane when we were on vacation last summer.
(Ew, sorry for the terrible cell phone snap. I wanted to include a picture of the patten but I still can't find my camera cord...ah, the joys of moving!)
I made this into a pin, but I think it would also be really pretty as a hair clip, in fact, I think I'm going to make a few more of these as hair clips for my nieces, for Easter. Note to self; buy more wool felt, the synthetic stuff isn't as nice.
Hope you're all having a great start to spring! Have you made, or are you making any spring things? Do tell in the comments, I've love to hop on over and have a look!
