The cauldron barrette was followed up with a few more designs. What a fun weekend! We added to the barrette mix those plaited ribbon ones from the 80s. Phoebe ate them up! She made the one on the bottom in yellow and lilac.
When I saw that Michael’s had their narrow spools of ribbon on sale 5/$1, the memories of the 80s came flying back. That, and scenes of Robin Sparkles from How I Met Your Mother. Anywhoo, we got totally stocked up for under $2!
Wrights has a short tutorial on how to make them.

We woke up today and listened to the last couple hours of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows audiobook. While we listened, Phoebe & I crafted up some barrettes. Halloween is such a great theme!
Now, we are watching the 4th HP movie! I love mother-daughter days.
A basic tutorial at Angry Chicken got me rolling.
I sewed the sides and then turned it inside out. That made it too bulky and weird. This first attempt came out a bit thick, but cute enough for us to wear.
