Her 1st of 2 pairs of new Crocs arrived in the mail today.
First you will need to gather your supplies. shoes, velcro, ribbon, a hot glue gun, felt and anything crafty you might have lying around.
Second- you are going to need to cut your felt to size. There really isn't a right way to do this. It’s all trial and error. So you do that until you get something like this. * A great tip is to do one and use the 1st one as a template for the other shoe, just remember to flip it over when you go to the next step.
Next you will need to cut 4 strips of ribbon about 2 inches long. You'll need ribbon that’s wide enough to attach your velcro to. After you've cut your ribbon, glue one to each of the "y" ends like this.
Now you need to attach the velcro.
Here's the fun part, decorating !!!

As you all may know I live up here in the frozen north- Wisconsin. It’s a place that hasn’t got the memo that it’s spring. So we’re all putting our jackets and jeans on to play outside. There have been a few warmer days but the wind is still a bit chilly. So when life gives you lemons, you make grocery bag kites. This is the easiest and fastest windy day fun creator. It’s so simple I’m not even going to give step-by-step detailed instructions on how to make them
You take a plastic grocery bag and tie yarn, string or ribbon to both handles. Then you run. It’s that simple. It’s also a great way to reuse plastic grocery bags.

I've been eyeing this dupioni silk at Hancock’s for months. It made it to the value fabric section and then all value fabric was on sale for 50% off, so I knew it was time to buy. I love how it turned out. I used the same pattern from her lilac linen dress but I changed the grain of the fabric in the middle of the bodice for some visual interest. I did try to make her a petticoat to wear underneath but the banana was here and I should have known better- don’t try to sew things when there are 2 little girls running around the house. I'll fix her petti later so she can wear it under her Rockibaby dresses.
