To celebrate the first day of school, our kids get a "Schultuete" filled with supplies, gifts and candy every year. For the girls it was actually their first, since they are now Kindergartners.
The skirts also got finished in time. They look really cute I think. I have also washed them since that picture and was surprised, that the pleats held up during washing and drying. I only had to iron the ribbon trim on the bottom a bit.
Now on to a little project. To preserve our summer memories I made a new picture display for the girls' room.
1. Spray paint your wooden frame any color you like as well as the clothes pins.
2. Wrap ribbon/string around your frame and secure with thumb tacks on the back side. I used 1 inch wide fabric strips, folded in half length wise and sewn down the middle.
3. Embellish the frame with flowers or other things. I made felt/fabric flowers which I glued onto the frame with E6000 glue.
4. Print some pictures and use the clothes pins to hang them from your frame. I used mini and regular sized wooden ones which I also spray painted beforehand.
Have a great week. I will be back soon with a small chalk board project.
