Valentine’s Day and Barrettes

Valentine’s Day is next week.  To many, it means love, hearts, and everything pink and red.  It also means helping Little Miss write her Valentine’s Day cards for the kids in her class.  It also means dressing her up that day in something red, looking all cute and girly. I’m also going to do her hair with something flowery.  I’m thinking a fabric rosette barrette is in order for that day.


These are something I thoroughly enjoy making.  I also have a few for sale in my etsy shop. The ones above will be listed soon.

I make mine a bit differently, but here is a great tutorial:

Have a great rest of the weekend!
