Beautiful Daisy Girl Scouts Hair Accessory, easy to make!

Standard

My daughter is in her second year of being a Girl Scout Daisy. She is on her way to learning the whole Girl Scout Law, which means earning her petal badges. I wanted to make her something cute to wear in her hair with her uniform vest. I’ve seen some cute hair clips and so decided to make my own version.

I used colors that matched as close as possible, and the colors are the numbers on the tape.
Then I cut small lengths about 2.5″-3″ of each color for the petals.
A small piece of cardboard was used for the Amazing Daisy center and covered with blue ribbon, then sewed onto the cardboard.
Each petal piece was looped and sewn in the middle with just two stitches to attach each petal, taking care to place each color in the correct order while going around.
I sewed the center in the middle and you could used either side for your top, depending on which look you like best.
Lastly I sewed the plain hair clip on the back.

This is my turn out:

A Daisy Hair Clip featuring ten petals which match each of the badge petals.

How to make a plain or too large Tshirt cute by fringing it

Standard

Lately it seems my daughter had been getting a lot of too big tee shirts from camp, functions and school. They fit but are a little too big and boxy looking. I wanted to give them a cuter look and then remembered a craft fair from when I was a kid and someone fringing tee shirts.

Well I decided to try it and it came out adorable and now it is retro cute!

This is how I fringed a tee:

First flatten a sleeve so the seem is even and then cut the seam off. Next cut each of the folded ends up to the shoulder seam. Start cutting fringe next up to the seam.

Repeat with second sleeve.

For the bottom, start by making the bottom hem even and cut it off. next fold the tee in half so you can cut through four layers at once. Then decide how long you want the fringe and put something at the stopping point so you will be able to make it even. Cut the fringe.

The shirt is done and can be worn, once it is washed it will have an even better fringed look as each piece with curl together, longways.
