I am making a quick stop over to say hi tonight and share a couple of goodies!
I found pictures of a ribbon T-shirt on Pinterest last year, but never made one. I decided to try this year and of course, the links sent me to an Etsy store that has closed! In took on the challenge of making a tree out of ribbon for the Little Lady (She loved the turkey shirt from last year so much!).
Here's a look at the finished product:
I started with 15 pieces of ribbon 3 inches long each. Then I hand sewed them into loops - It would be MUCH easier to machine sew them, but I am machine sewing incompetent! Then I lined them up in rows (5, 4, 3, 2, 1) and sewed each row together overlapping the pieces slightly. Finally, I attached the rows to the shirt. This was BY FAR the hardest part since I needed to make sure the rows were even and level - I didn't want a wonky tree! :)
In the end I was mostly happy (I would re-do the second row from the top if I could.), but over all I was happy - That is of course until a loop fell off of the shirt while she was at school today. How you ask? She says it happened during the "crazy dance party"!
I also want to share our newest product. It goes along with the other phonics units we have put out. This one focuses on the glued sounds -ang, -ing, -ong, -ung, -ank, -ink, -onk, -unk. You can find the pack HERE.
Here's a preview...
I hope to be back again later this week with more goodies, but who knows the way things have been lately I am scrambling for time to get anything done! For now, I'm off to address my Christmas cards!
