(Yes, I know. I have no time and no money. Boo.)
I want to hem dress pants, shirts & skirts (skirts for Ellie one day cause I obviously don't wear them). I also want to hem expensive jeans to make them look like they weren't hemmed. It's SO expensive to get it done! Maybe I could be like Julie Andrews in Sound of Music and make dresses and play clothes for Ellie? Maybe some random things too like hats, dish towels, tissue box covers, and pouches for pens and change? You could make a ton of baby things too like changing pads, diaper/wipe pouches, bibs, burp cloths, blankets...dang! The list goes on. SO fun.
On Sunday, I was asking some mom friends at church where I can get cute hair accessories for Ellie. The ones I've seen online that I like are stinkin' expensive. My mom friends said that you lose them really easily, too. So even though Ellie has troll hair that's too short for anything yet, I'm going to try and make some myself so I don't have to spend much and I don't need to know how to use a sewing machine to make 'em!
Here are some tutorials I found online:
1. Felt Flower Pin by Hoot and a Holler
I didn't think the rose pins were too cute but they look really cute in the girl's hair.
You can make these without the button too. You just need cute ribbon.
And when I finally do learn to use a sewing machine...
Arent headbands so sweet on little girls?
6. Little Boy's Tie - Something for Maxx too!
I want to try to design ones for M & E on my own. :P
On a completely different note, I found a desktop wallpaper site I liked called PixiePresents. I downloaded this one. It makes me think of Maxx & Ellie a few years down the line. They're holding hands & looking up to God in the heavens. How precious.
