Ribbon choices for pinwheel hair bows

Many of my beloved customers often ask whether I can make customized pinwheel bows with other choices of ribbon pattern. The answer is YES. This post will show ribbon choices for pinwheel hair bows. They are 7/8" (2,2cm)  to 1" (2,5cm) wide. Please mention the ribbon code when you order.

 Thanks for the cute photos, Lina... :)

Tanya Whelan & Joel Dewberry's fabrics

These fabrics have been sitting in the rack for so long.

The bottom stack is Dolce series by Tanya Whelan.
The birds on the fabric are perfect for my daughter's bird-themed-bedroom. I've made patterns for a bed quilt and 2 pillow cases. Just haven't got time to actually cut and sew.

The top stack consists of 2 fabrics of Deer Valley in Persimmon by Joel Dewberry.
The one the left is absolutely my favorite. It's called Antler Damask in Sky color. Isn't it gorgeous? The one on the right is Meadow Lace in Persimmon. I planned to use them for pillow cases for my daybed at my office, but I might change my plan. Still not sure what to use them for.

Surely they are too gorgeous to be abandoned like that. So I have to start doing something with them. Hopefully I will post some WIP soon... :)

My Vitarlenology notebook

This came couple days ago:
Soo happy when I opened the package and found this gorgeous notebook that I purchased from Design by Vitarlenology. It's way better IRL than in the photo. Love the fabric pattern & color, and love the classic binding.

My daughter - who loves stationary and anything pretty - thinks that she must have one too. So, I will definitely buy another one... :)

Paper bag owl

This is my daughter's last Halloween craft. I should have posted it last week, but work was in my way.
Actually we've already made one like this when my daughter was about 3 years old. We were inspired by one episode from Barney, I think it was about Halloween party where they made paper bag owl, paper spider, etc. My daughter was cleaning her drawer when she found her old paper bag owl. It was dusty, torn here and there, color faded, basically ruined. So, we decided to make one again. And the timing was perfect coz it was couple of days before Halloween.

I always keep brown paper bags from places I shop: Starbucks, The Body Shop, etc. I reuse them for storing my fresh herbs. This time we turn it into a sleepy owl. Yes, you can see that it's sleepy, coz we made it during the day :) The ears, eyes, beak and wings are made of plain printing paper decorated using markers. Kids can play with it as hand puppet, by sticking their hand inside the bag. Or you can simply use it for Halloween decoration or an idea for kids activities in Halloween party. Great to teach them that recycling is fun... :)
