A Good Weekend for Staying Home

This weekend in Michigan was COLD and WINDY and SNOWY. None of which I particularly enjoy. Saturday we spent time making Valentines for Quinn's preschool friends, but we're still on the search for the packaging, so I'll have photos later this week.
One other thing I was working on was a ginormous flower for Quinn's hair from a sewing book I got for Christmas. Using one fat quarter of fabric, a sewing machine, needle, thread, an iron, a button, hot glue & a headband, we ended up with this beauty today...
It was a bit bigger than I anticipated, and I even left one petal out of each stack just because I didn't have enough material. It's pretty much nearly the size of her head, as you can plainly see. Too funny! And no, it certainly was not warm enough to be wearing a sun dress, but it was a pick-your-battles type of thing, so whatever. Like I said, we stayed in where it was warm all weekend long! :)
The pattern is from the book Sewing Bits and Pieces- it's pretty cheap on Amazon and has other cute patterns, too!
