Ok, yes making Phoebe clothes is addictive but what about barrettes! No one prepared me for barrette fever. I'd been resisting because honestly I've been waiting for and expecting her hair to all fall out any day but here we are at almost 7 months and it's still here, yippee! And almost in her eyes (not really) so these barrettes are a necessity (nope) and that totally outweighs the fact that if one falls out of her hair into her lap it'll be in her mouth in 2 seconds flat (I watch her really carefully). So Santa left her some cutie Haba barrettes and Mom had to add to her collection with these...clockwise from top: her name machine stitched into wool felt and slid over a clip, my shoddy version of these super cute barrettes I spied at tiny mcsmall made by little something, a felt bead glued into a felt flower and glued on a clip, an anchor button glued to a clip and a fabric covered button glued to a clip. If you're tiny and in my craft room you'd better watch out cause you're going to get glued to a clip.
And this is, I think, my favorite so far... made from selvedge dots. I want to make an army of these! I couldn't help but put up the Phoebe shot but there's a better shot of the barrette over here.
I promise (Katie!), I'm being super careful about her not choking on these. Every time I leave the room or put her in the carseat or down for a napper I take the barrette out of her hair and stash it somewhere, most often in my hair, which is how I end up at the dentist looking like this.
Reminded me a bit of this funny mom story.
