Wedding Accessories

My Sissy got married two weeks ago. She has a brand new nephew on her husbands side. I suggested that I would make him a tie onesie like the one Char at Crap I've Made has a tutorial on. My friend Aubrey made one for our friends baby shower that turned out darling! I've been wanting to try one for a long time and thought this would be a perfect project. I followed Chars instructions and printed out her template for the pattern. I have now used Heat and Bond on two projects and have decided that I don't like it. I will be buying Wonder Under next time I have an applique project. This project was super easy and I was pleasantly surprised with how cute it turned out! My Sissy's new Sis in law loved the onesie and her little baby boy looked so handsome in it!


My Sisters wedding colors were pink and brown. Her Sis in law asked that since he was a brand new baby boy, to stick with a fabric that didn't have pink. (She didn't want him to get confused for a little girl.) My silly sister forgot that request and picked up some fabric that was brown with pink polka dots. I told her we could still use it and I could make the little girls some hair flowers. I stumbled onto a blog I hadn't seen before called Fabric Bows and More. This blog is one of my new favorites! I found a darling bow tutorial from Cute As A Fox that was done with ribbon. I knew I could make  that one work.


I started by making a fabric rosette. Once the rosette was done I followed the tutorial from Cute As A Fox. I did mine slightly different since I was putting the rosette in the middle. When I had my strand gathered I formed it into a circle and hot glued it together so it would hold the circle shape. I then took the circle and hot glued it to the bottom of the rosette. I needed something for the middle so I went to my bead stash and found some light pink beads. I threaded the beads onto some wire and formed a circle. Then I hot glued the beads to the middle of the rosette. The last thing I did was take some felt and made two circles. I hot glued one to the bottom. I then took my alligator clip and hot glued it onto the felt with the clasp open. I took the last piece of felt and slipped it inside the clasp then glued it down. I was super pleased with these little flowers. They looked darling in the little girls hair! MnM LOVED hers!
