Halloween Witches Hat

Hi everyone, I would like to give a tutorial on how to make this Halloween Witches Hat.  This is a cute craft that is easy to make.

Materials Needed:
1/2 yard of Halloween fabric.
light weight Heat & Bond or fusible interfacing
Rick rack
Halloween decorations of your choice
Fabric glue
Craft glue or hot glue gun
Polyester fiberfill or news paper
1.  Use about 1/2 yard of Halloween fabric.  This fabric has a black background with white object that kind of look like spider webs.  I think it will work great.  You will need to cut 2 circles about 10" diameter ( I took a dinner plate and traced around it) you will use one circle for the upper brim and one for the bottom of the hat.

2. Cut a 14" cone shape piece of fabric for the top of the witches hat, you will only need to cut one.

3. Cut your fusible interfacing or the heat and bond, the same diameter and shape as the cone and the circle.  You will only need one of each piece.  Press  it on the wrong sides of the fabric.  (For help use package instructons.)

4. Sew the seam on the cone shape piece to make it the hat top.

5. Take one of the circle fabrics and cut a hole in the middle the same diamiter as the base of the cone shaped top, pin and sew the cone to the circle base to form a brim.

6. Stuff with a little polyester fiberfill or news paper.  It  may need something to help it stand up.

7. Sew the bottom of the hat to the brim.  I zigzag around the edge to keep from fraying and used rick rack to cover the zigzag seam. 

8. Decorate it as you please.  I used fabric glue to glue the ribbon on the  hat and a craft glue for the other embellishments.

Little girl Hairstyle tutorial #7 Knot hair do

This is one of my favorite hair styles I have done on C so far.  I just love all the different textures, with the braids,  and the knots, and the poofy ponytail in the back.  Don't worry I know it looks complicated, but if you follow the steps you will see it is really easy!
Part the hair across the front of the head, like in the picture to the left. Then dutch braid, the hair down to the ear.
then make a part from the tip of the left ear to the tip of the right ear  and make 5 pony tails with the remaining hair on top of head up to the part you just made. Tuck the tail of the dutch braid into your first pony tail.
Tie each ponytail into a knot. Demonstrated in the picture on the left. Once all the ponytails have been tied into knots. take the tails, and pull them into a single ponytail at the back of the head.

Backcomb the ponytail Place bobby pins underneath the  ponytail to make it stand up a little.

Roll the remaining hair up to meet the ponytail and secure with bobby pins. ( …

This style is simple, and easy. Perfect for those little toddlers, who wont hold still long. Plus it gets the hair out of their eyes, which is always a plus. The great thing is this style is for everyone! I have done my hair like this as well. It is so quick, but it looks super nice.
Part hair on the side of head.

Braid from forehead towards the back of head and secure. I use elastic bands in my girls hair, and bobby pins in my own.

Curl the rest of hair with a curling iron.

Finish with a cute bow.

Cute easy skirt tutorial!

Is it just my girls, that really LOVE skirts? Most days my two year old, C. E , refuses to wear anything that isn't either a skirt or a dress. Lucky for her I am constantly making skirts and dresses. :) I haven't even purchased her any pants for a year. ( well I did purchase one pair, but it had a skirt attached so it doesn't count.) Each day after I get C. E dressed, ( in either a skirt or a dress) she always says "I wear dress lite (like) a pincess (princess)."  It always makes me giggle a little. So this is my latest skirt. It is inspired by that pre shirred fabric you can get at any fabric store. they didn't have any made from corduroy  though, so I decided to make my own. If you can sew a straight line, then you can make this skirt! It is the easiest skirt I have ever made, and I have made A LOT of skirts,  It is made with grey corduroy, so it will hold up well, and the interchangeable sash will ensure it will go with anything.  C loves wearing this skir…
