Cupcake Liner Daffodil Art

Daffodils are the first spring flower that comes up in my garden. The cheerful yellow petals always bring a smile to my face, but I can never seem to get them to last as long inside as cut flowers. So I found my own crafty solution!

To Make This Craft You Will Need

  • yellow cupcake liners (3)
  • yellow mini cupcake liners (3)
  • white school glue
  • yellow buttons
  • green and light blue construction paper
  • scissors

Directions

After gathering supplies, invite kids to turn their cupcake liners inside out. Glue a mini cupcake liner inside each of the large cupcake liners, then glue them down to the light blue paper. Next, glue a button inside each of the flowers.

While the cupcake liners are drying, invite kids to cut stems and long leaves from the green paper.

Glue the stems and leaves to the blue paper. It’s definitely okay if they overlap…it makes the flowers look like they are blowing in the wind!

Hang and enjoy, or share with a teacher, grandparent, or neighbor.

The Magic Of A Two Piece Dress

When it comes to a mini capsule, you need your clothing pieces to be versatile. I decided to add a “two piece dress” to my mini capsule. I’d seen similar ideas used in travel clothing and thought even just having a coordinating top and bottom would be a good idea. I can wear them together…

Recycled Bottle Hummingbird Feeder

Teach kids the importance of recycling and spending time outdoors this summer by building a recycled bottle hummingbird feeder. As a kid, I loved spending time at my grandma’s house. Her backyard was filled with hummingbird feeders, and we loved sitting on the porch swing watching them. I always helped her prepare homemade hummingbird nectar…

Hot Patterns DISASTER – Weekender Cargo Pants

I don’t enjoy writing bad reviews. In fact, I would much rather just pretend nothing happened and never write about this. But then, I would feel bad about other people buying this pattern. I had such high hopes. I love the casual styling, I love the topstitching, the pockets are fun, I love the pockets that form the belt casing. It could have been a great pattern. I would have enjoyed the topstitching and the pockets. Alas, it was not meant to be.

First, the crotch height is um, high. Like, the highest draft I’ve ever seen. This almost reached to the bottom of my bra. I don’t understand it. At all. How can the draft be this high? Can you see the faint white chalk marks where the rear pockets go? The pocket flap would start on my back!!

Look, you can actually see the bottom of my black and white sports bra. The top of the pants go way above my ribs. And the seam allowances are 3/8” on this pattern. Even if you took that into account, the height on these is crazy.

So then I had an ah-ha moment. Maybe it’s NOT the pattern. Maybe I need to make a larger size? And pull them down more?? Maybe my hips are not letting the fabric settle down where it should be? So I loosened the pins holding the CF together and ended up with the weirdest low, pointy crotch ever. No, it’s not me. It’s definitely the pattern. When it is pulled up to rib-ville, the crotch curve actually fits okay. At least, it really felt like that is where it is supposed to be.

On the plus side, I used crappy muslin fabric and didn’t spend too much time on this.

Anyone want to buy a pattern? I won’t be using it. I bought it because I love my Jalie Vanessa pants (which I’m wearing right now) and thought these might be similar. Hahahhahahahahhaa. Maybe, instead, I will add the details I like (the pieced and topstitched legs and the large pockets) to my Jalie pants instead. They never let me down. The Hot Patterns tally is 1 for 2 now. I have one more pattern to try out. Oh, and I did email Hot Patterns last week about the missing pattern piece on my HP t-shirt. No response. It’s been a week.
