When I have the sewing machine troubles, I get very frustrated. Sometimes I think this hobby is making me more stressed, rather than helping me release the stress... But I like the feeling I get when I make something I am satisfied, and then Baby Momo wears them or plays with them.
After ruining the T-shirt dress, I had to make something else to make me feel better. It needed to be something easy so that I will not mess up, something quick because it was already late at night. I definitely did not want to use the sewing machine. I have been meaning to make hair accessories for Baby Momo, so that was what I did. I like flower or bow clips on headband and they are fine for weekends, but not practical for everyday use. Momo has very fine hair, but now that her hair is long enough to be made into pigtails, I want some pigtail holders.
Here the very first pigtail holder I made for Baby Momo:
I planed to make a flower, but when I finished I realized I made a pumpkin.
The fabric is red, not orange. But it looks like a pumpkin because of its size and shape.
I wanted to make a big flower to avoid choking in case Momo puts it in her mouth. I should have made 5 or 6 flower petals instead of 8 to make it look like a flower. But I am kind of happy with this result, because I have found out an easy way to make pumpkins!
