Three for one

Today you get three great ideas in one blog! This is Taya this morning before church.

She is wearing a brand new skirt I made her. Her hair is in "Nana curls" and she also has a new flower clip that I made her. Yea, she is spoiled!

Starting with the skirt. This was so easy! I actually used some material that I "found" in my moms craft closet (thanks mom!) Here is the directions for the skirt. I want to try a bigger version of this for myself, but it will have to go on the long list of things I want to do.

Here is a close up

It is perfect for twirling and very girly! I love what was done here and want to make these for Taya and my little nieces.

So on to her hair. Taya has been asking for curls, "like nanas" for days. It is hard to do on very fine, very thin little girl hair. I even got a small 1/2" curl iron hoping this would make her happy, but the curls just weren't bounce enough for her(her own words!) So last night I had the option of watching Nascar or browsing craft blogs (guess what I picked!) and came across this idea. So after her bath, I put her hair up in the little buns and held my breath. (I wish I would have snapped a picture, cause she did look cute, but I was to tired to care at that point.)
When I let it out, it was so curly and so BIG. But it was just what she was after. I spritzed it with some water to help calm it down a little and this is the result "Nana Curls"

The last piece to creating her look today was the flower clip. I, like everyone else, am in love with the flower clip look. My sister in law Lyndsy has made some in the past for Taya and they are ADORABLE, but I can't keep begging more out of her. So I decided to give it a try And when I was at Roberts yesterday they had a great sale on silk flowers so I got a few. I didn't want to make a mistake so I tried looking up tips and how to's on line, but was not really successful on finding instructions. So tomorrow I will be posting a how to and several of my variations. But for today here is the one I made to go with Taya's new skirt.

Make sure you check back in for the how to and tips on making a flower clip.
