Summer Has Finally Arrived!

Hello everyone! Summer seems like it has finally arrived here and we really have been enjoying it! I have been spending a lot of time outside enjoying the gorgeous sunshine. So have the kids. I practically have to pry them from the outside just to come back in the house. I've even been able to get the hubby to spend some time outside in the sunshine. He is not too fond of warm weather, and would prefer much more for it to be 20 degrees and snowing. Summers here are very short so you really have to take full advantage of them when they are here. It is June 25th today and it finally hit the 80's!!!
So, I have made a couple new hair pieces for my little girl. They are both made from ribbon, just slightly different from each other. I went to Michael's today and grabbed some more ribbon. All their ribbon is "half off" right now so I kind of indulged! But here are the two that I made.....I hope you like them! If you have any questions on how I made them, please ask and I will be more than happy to give you a step-by-step tutorial.

Just Another Fabric Headband

     It seems that making headbands and hair clips is addicting! Whenever I have a free minute I always get out my crafting supplies and work on something new. I love how easy (and inexpensive) it is to make something to match my daughter's clothing. I only wish I would have started this when she was a baby, considering how much $$ I spent at the stores!
     It is almost midnight at my house, it is pouring rain outside, and I work in the morning.....yet, I can't help but want to get out my crafting box and start something new. I am going to hold back, though or I will be a walking zombie come 5:30am. 
     I did make my little darling a headband today to match a lime green dress that I ordered her online. She is normally a "pink and pastel" girl but lime green is such a fun Summertime color!

Rolled Fabric Headband

I recently bought my daughter an adorable new dress. The only problem was that she didn't have a hair accessory to match. I decided to make a headband from rolled fabric which I purchased from Wal-Mart. You can use any old fabric that you have laying around, or even denim works great also.

Here is the dress:
