When we started to plan our Valentine’s week on the blog, I decided i’d work on making some red & pink outfits for the girls. You’ll find instructions on how to make a hair clip, shirt & skirt. If you’re not up for crafting, enter the giveaway at the end. I’ll send all 3 items to one lucky winner!
I enjoy making hair clips for the girls. I don’t have much time to do it, so I typically buy them. Around the holidays, I like to try & make them a few. This year I decided to make a bunch & give them to the girls in Maggie’s preschool class as a Valentine (there are only 3 girls besides her, so it’s not too tough!).
I order my alligator clips from Etsy. I usually browse the “supplies” category of Etsy for a good deal. Then I cover them using ribbon & a hot glue gun.
Once the alligator clip is covered in ribbon, just glue the felt piece on!
*Winner can choose either clip pictured.
This is the same skirt pattern I always blog about! You can find the full tutorial here:
Many fabric stores have adorable Valentine’s fabric out right now, or choose any red or pink fabric & add the opposite color ric rac or ribbon!
*Winner will get a skirt that fits approx. 8months – 3t & can choose either patten shown!
1. Order the applique of your choice
2. Pre-wash whatever onesie or shirt you’ll be adding the applique to
3. Place the applique on the shirt & iron (more detailed instructions come with the applique).
If you order an applique from Once Upon A Design & mention The Chirping Moms, you can choose a free 1.25″ red heart applique or a black felt 3.5″ mustache applique!
