Well, hello everyone! It’s been a while… But the year is definitely up and running, and routines have been established, so all is good! If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram you may have seen a few snippets of what we’ve been up to since I was last here (links at right).
You may remember my last post where I shared with you all the Pokémon themed bedding I made from two sheets. I kept the leftover bits of fabric from this project and wondered what to do with them. Then it came to me!
First of all, happy 2017! I hope you all enjoyed a fabulous Christmas and New Year period with family and friends!
Here’s a very brief look at our Christmas Day, held at our house
Christmas presents for our nephews and nieces have a $10 limit now that they are a bit older. The dreamcatcher I made for my eldest niece definitely came under the dollar limit, and these fairy wings I’ve made for my youngest niece do too!
I found two different styles of fairy wings on Pinterest that I liked, here and here. I initially was going to go with the first style, since I had some pink, floaty chiffon which I had found at an Op Shop some years ago for $5 (it was a curtain). But a quick look through the discount rack at Spotlight led me to some gorgeous pink lacy fabric. The amount I’ve used for the wings cost me about $2.50. So I ended up making both styles of wings!
