Baby Shower Idea

A friend from my ward is having a baby girl soon! This is what I came up with for her baby shower gift! It was super easy and it works as a bow holder!

Cloth baby rings

I found this great tutorial on make it and love it for cloth baby rings. I was a little worried at first because I am not the best at sewing, but I am trying to get better so I thought I'd give it a shot! I'm glad I did because it ended up being pretty easy and only took about an hour to do both sets! I do need to get some cuter fabric though! There is no place to get cute fabric in Vegas! Does anyone know any good places online to buy fabric at a good price? I guess the important thing is Eden loves these!! They are going to be part of her quiet toys for church!

Headband Holder

I have a ton of these cute lace headbands with bows made out of sheer ribbon attached to them. I learned the hard way that these do not do well shoved in a box with the rest of my headbands! Last night I finally came up with a solution for storing them.
I took an old formula can, the tallest one I had, then I took the label off. I'm sure you can guess what I did next!

Covered it up!!
To cover it I just cut out a piece of material the same size as the can, then I took the lid off and lined the edge of the fabric to the very top. I used hot glue around the top and bottom edges. Any fabric I had hanging over the bottom edge I just folded under and glued to the bottom of the can. I also covered the top part of the lid with fabric just by tracing it, then I lined the edge of the lid with ribbon. You could also use scrapbook paper with mod podge to make one of these.

Here is what it looks like with all the headbands on it. You can also store any non-fragile headbands or anything you want inside the can!

I still had more headbands so I am going to take this smaller can and cover it with different fabric that matches and stack it on top! But I need to find the perfect fabric first!
