I did something Girlie...for a change!

Hi, and welcome!

I'm in a rebellious mood....yep....gettin' really cheesed with all the masculine stuff, so I got out a bag of scraps (left-overs from quilting), and sat in my favourite chair (leather recliner with squishy cushions), in front of the telly, and watched a slushy film, (lots of lingerin' looks, flutterin' eyelashes, and smackin' kisses), and sewed some ickle fabric flowers......so therapeutic.....sigh.......and created a few girlie hairclips.........

Simple five petal shape.....sewed a ladybird button in the centre.......put a small felt circle on the back of the flower........sewed the felt circle to a plain clip.......

Giving some of these to our grandaughters, so wanted to present them nicely.......but, couple of our daughters say they could sell them to parents at school.....hmmmm....not sure 'bout that......
made the tags from free papers from a magazine..........I made lots of the flowers, all sorts of fabrics and buttons, but not finished enough to show.....may do when I get 'em finished......."when" being the operative word...ha!

Would love to know what ya think!

Anything goes (hope this qualifies)
Pretty Blossoms (again...hope this qualifies)
Anything goes/optional buttons
