spots, clips and birthday cake


We had a party for a little friend on the weekend. I recently brought this spotted voile to make a dress for Grace (photos to come) and had a quite a lot left over. I ended up making two little shirts out of it, one for Maeve and one for her friend Scout.


I also had a go at decorating some little hair clips for her. They turned out cute, but I dont know how well they will hold together! The tutorial for the covered button ones is here if you are interested.


And here is the birthday girl with her beautiful felt party hat on...she has a very creative Mama! Maeve was loving that cake.

WOW OH WOW!! I just adore the green & white spotty top! The clips are really cute too. I followed this tute, but I found my vclips bent a little & didn't slide as well anymore - not sure what I did wrong???

thanks for all the lovely comments:)
Claire, maybe your wire was to thick, or the clips a poorer quality?? These were mini clips from the cheap shop, so I used a thiner wire and made sure the wire was really flat/square underneath. I tried them in my girls hair quickly before I gave them away, and they seemed fine...but maybe after wearing them for a while they would fall out easily? I brought some bigger clips of a better quality, so will try those next.
