Baby Hat

Good afternoon everyone.

I know I have not been posting much as of late but I have been very busy crafting. I have 7 more projects completed just need to takes pics and post.

Pam from over at Scrap n Sew Granny is going to be new grand mother in July. I'm so excite for her. Well for me too. I now have a little girl I can make things for. :)

I know that she will receive tons of newborn stuff at her shower so I plan to make everything for a 3 to 6 month old.

Today I want to share this adorable hat I made for the baby. It is made of 100% cotton. Great for those hot days and easy to wash and wear.

I had the hardest time trying to find a flower that I liked on it. Needless to say I now have 6 flowers crocheted and in a drawer. I do love the one I finally decided to use.

Silhouette Challenges: Ch# 24 "Use a file in a completely different way than it was intended" (Paper wind Chime)

Good Morning!

It's time for another challenge over at Silhouette Challenges.
This month is  (Use a file in a completely different way than it was intended).

For this challenge I created a Paper Wind Chime. Yes, I said it's a paper one. It maybe silent but will be really cute hanging in my craft room. I have a ceiling fan running all the time so it should constantly be moving.


 

The first fie I used in a way other than intended was the Box Pentagon. I used the lid for the top of my chime. I used fishing line to string the flowers and butterflies from the inside of the lid.

The second file was the top part of the teapot. I mirrored it to the top and then overlapped it, merged and cut it out. I was then able to fold in half and use the bottom portion under a flap on the top of the box with just the little round part sticking out. Punch a hole in the middle to string the line through.


I really like how it turned out. What say you?
