Last week while looking for some ribbon to make a collar for Bob the Super Cat, I found a bag full of  random supplies I bought in Argentina. There were lots of things I forgot I got! And some that I totally remembered what I bought them for.

La semana pasada, mientras buscaba cinta para hacerle un collar a Bob el Super Gato, encontré una bolsa llena de “cositas” que compré en Argentina. Encontré muchas “cositas” de las cuales me había olvidado, pero muchas que al instante recordé para qué las había comprado.

After a little playing, I made a pair of earrings, a necklace and a hair clip.

Después de experimentar por un rato, hice un par de aros,  un collar y una hebilla para el pelo.

I really like them! I wore them today and got lots of likes (Yay!) I also think the hair pin looks beautiful in Paloma. I only wish she would leave it on for more than 4 minutes though 😉

¡Me encantan como quedaron! Me los puse hoy y recibí muchos halagos (Iupiii!) La hebilla del pelo le queda divina a Paloma, aunque me encantaría que se la dejara puesta por más de 4 minutos 😉

I would love to see if you make something inspired by these. Please share it at the Mother Crafter Project Pool!

Zara inspired Hair Flower Tutorial

A couple of weeks ago I went to Zara with my friend Julieta to help her shopping for some basics. Sorting through one bin of clearance stuff I found a nice fabric hair clip made of silk with raw edges. I though it was pretty cool and easy to make, and I didn’t want to pay $12 ($12!) for it. So here it is!

You will need:

  • One 6″ x 12″ piece of silk (I use crepe Georgette Silk, but any kind of silk will do).
  • One 4″ x 5″ piece of felt of the same color.
  • Pattern
  • Sewing machine or needles if hand sewing, scissors, thread

Download the free pattern and cut it out of the felt piece. Cut 12 1″ x 5″ strips out of silk.

Center and pin the strips into the piece of felt, overlapping them about 1/4 of an inch.

Once you pin all the strips, sew them straight down the middle across all the strips.

Now turn it 90 degrees and sew down the middle of each strip.

Now that you are done with the sewing, gather the whole thing with your fingers in the middle and secure it with a couple of stitches. You can hand sew this with double threaded needle or run it trough the sewing machine a couple of times.

Attach a hair rubber band to it and you are… finito!

Wear it!

Now kiss your baby and thank her/him for taking a nap so you were able to make it! 🙂

A big GRACIAS to Julieta once again for taking these gorgeous photos!

I would love to see if you make one. Please share it at the Mother Crafter Project Pool!

I love Prudent Baby. Their tutorials and projects are definitely a big inspiration to me.

One of my favorite posts is the one about Quinn’s Farm-tastic First Birthday. It is full of cool stuff for the kids, and I really like all the ideas! The multi-use DIY hair clip is adorable, so I made one for my friend Julieta’s new baby girl, Emma.

Isn’t she the cutest thing?

I thought I was not going to be able to make anything today. Michael went to the baseball game and he is still there. They are tied 4-4 in the 11th inning, and it is 11 pm! Go Giants! Anyway, I did manage to make something.

A sparkly skull hair clip. I glued this baby like nobody’s business. I am sure it would look better if I had sewn the sequins but…  I am going to bed now.

Good night!
