Some simple crafting...

We are in full swing getting ready to head back to school tomorrow in this house.  The uniforms etc are ready, the books are covered so today I worked on making Emma a couple of hair accessories for school.

Super easy to make. For the first ones I used some button blanks with the shank on the back.  Covered them with fabric to match her uniform (royal blue and yellow) and then threaded a thin blue hair tie through the loop on the back. 

Then I measured and cut some FOE (head band elastic) I had to fit Emma's head and sewed the ends together before cutting a couple of felt flowers in school colours and hand sewing them on with a button centre.   Easy, quick and inexpensive for school.  

I also did some other crafting this week.  I went to the local op shop the other day and found this little square frame for $3.  I grabbed it because I had recently bought an little square owl picture from here and it looked like it could possibly fit in there.  The picture is only 12cm x 12cm.  Impossible to buy a frame for.

Anyway I took it home, gave it a few coats of paint and some glitter spray and then a sand back.  Then I mounted my little picture inside and this is what it looks like now. Totally cute and the best thing - completely unique.  

I have another little picture from the same shop of a little vintage caravan, I wonder if I will be lucky enough to find another frame?
