The Birthday fun continues.
Tomorrow is the party day! We still have tons to do to prepare. Some cooking, cleaning and of course setting everything up outside. Remember when I mentioned being knee deep in fabric last week? I’ve been working day and night on these two projects for Felix 1st Birthday Party.
For the party hats, I wanted something fabric that we could re-use. I came across this tutorial which gave me a great start. In fact I followed most of it. I decided not to use glue, I don’t have pinking shears (they’re on my list though!) and I added an elastic strap to the hat so that it would stay on people’s heads better.
They’re made of 4 circles each.
These were not finished when I photographed them. (and to be honest, I’ll be staying up late to finish a few tonight. eeek.)
I had so much fun with the fabric combinations!
Happy hat model.
My second big project was to make a bean bag toss. Now, I know a lot of people are creeped out by clowns, so sorry if this bothers anyone. But we have a bit of a carnival theme going here, and I just couldn’t resist.
I started with a big moving box and two bags of pearl barley.
sketching it out.
We put the barley in plastic bags first, just to make them a little safer if they do rip open.
Ta-daaaaa. Finished product:
I’m sure I’ll have an update Monday with shots of this stuff in action. Have a great weekend, we sure will!
