My daughter is crafty (in a good way). The other day she had and idea for transforming a plain white plastic headband. She used a flower we had left over from this post and some Aqua Divine Twine. She secured the ends with scotch tape (I think glue would be better long-term) and attached the flower with wire. I think it turned out pretty cool.

I love things that come in mini sized and clothes pins are no exception. I love Japanese Washi Masking Tape in any size. Marry the two and I’m a happy camper.
I used two different tapes on each clothes pin, one on each side.
I did a version of this craft (if you can call it that) a while back with grown-up full size clothes pins. The beauty of using these little guys is you can apply the tape directly to the clothes pins without using white sticker paper as a base.

A while back I came across The Long Thread blog and was stunned and amazed at the gold mine of crafty goodness Ellen has put together (not to mention how well organized everything is). For the last two years she has even created a Top 100 Tutorial List (oh the possibilities!). When you have a moment, make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and stop by The Long Thread and be ready to be inspired.

My felt arrived in the mail today at 1pm and by 3pm I had a new friend.
I learned a few things. I need to practice my stitches (a lot) and I prefer a more fluffy feel to the felt. After making this little guy I hand-washed all the felt so future projects will have a less “pressed” appearance. All in all, I have to say I think I will be having lots of fun making holiday gifts out of felt this year. So. Very. Satisfying.
