IT’S PRONOUNCED GROW-GRAIN

This weekend, I decided to take on a couple of projects. One involved a sleep sack, but I’ll save that for another time. The other one was making some hair clips for ZGirl. Sure, she has the hair of a duckling, but hot glue a bow onto a baby duck and convince anyone that it’s not cute. Wait…you wouldn’t actually want to hot glue a bow to a duck, but you know.

Here’s some pictures of ZGirl modeling each of them.

My favorites? The ones with feathers.

What I learned? Hobby Lobby’s grosgrain ribbon in their fabric section is not of very good quality, but the stuff they keep in the crafts (scrapbooking) deptĀ is of heavier/better grade.

Also, I learned that a wooden clothespin is perfect for holding open the alligator clip while you are trying to either not burn your fingers or accidently hot glue your clip shut.

Now I just have to figure out what to do with the remaining 14 1/2 feet of each pattern of ribbon.
