Pink Rose Bobby Pins

Pink Rose Bobby Pins
Finally, my handmade pink rose bobby pins are available at my Storenvy store!! 

These were made with pink knit fabric which was leftover from a top that I made for myself some time back.  Working with knit for the first time, I was so happy that the edges didn't fray =)  It took me a few months to get it to my Storenvy store because my 2nd little one was keeping me busy with all the feeding and diaper changing... Well, now that it's here, how about getting it to add some colour to your hair? ;)

Trying Something New - Button Holes

It's a brand new year, so I thought I would try something new, something I've never ever done before.... Why?  Because I'm scared of failure.... Somehow, when I was growing up, failure was something to be avoided at all costs.

So, what's this thing that I've been hesitant to try?  Button holes!!  Well, I finally mustered up enough courage.  I tried out a few on scrap cloth, most of them had clots of thread behind, or the tension was wrong.  After playing around with the stitch settings, I finally tried it out on my product and here's the result.  What do you think of my first attempt?
