Little Mermaid Hair Clip

My Little Munchkin is a purple wearing, skirt loving, princess fanatic! I love her to pieces and most of my pinterest pins are, of course, for her! The other day, I saw this tutorial on how to make a Little Mermaid hair clip I had to at least try it. I have never made nor have I attempted to make a bow or clip or anything because, honestly, I was afraid of messing up. Well at Joanns it was "coupon commotion" and I had all these 50% & 40% off coupons that I could use so I went over and bought all the ribbon, clips, glue/glue gun, and more ribbon for a future project. Money-wise-i ended up doing pretty well because I used a coupon for every item i purchased (yay) hair clip turned out OK...I'm not 100% happy with it, but I did an okay job. Keep in mind I've NEVER used a glue gun that stuff it tricky. Speaking of which, any tips on how to get it off of my kitchen table?
I do have another project or two in the works that involves ribbon and alligator clips, please wish me luck!

My Sewing Sabbatical

I honestly don't know if anyone follows this or not. But if there is anyone and you've been wondering where on earth all my sewing projects have been join the do I! Since making the curtains for Annalyse's room & our bathroom, I haven't sewn anything unless you count reparing the Lorax's missing fingers that our new dog, Millie, chewed off. Everyone knows performing surgry on stuffed animals is every mom's speciality. I recall my little brother's beloved stuffed monkey "Tom" had countless surgries and my Mom scrubbed in everytime. I think that the monkey is still around. Hopefully the Lorax will have the same fate.
I have made aprons for all of my nieces and nephews for their birthdays and I definately need to make a post about those sometimes :)
Anyway-I DO have a few projects in the works.
Until then...
