Charisma Cardz -Alter It

Good morning, as you can see I'm back up and running again, the laptop had an extended stay as I was out when they tried to deliver, but has come back with a new hard drive and 'ac' adapter.  Seems to be ok so far!!!

It's time for a new challenge over at Charisma Cardz and this weeks theme is Alter It.
So I got to cutting up one of the girls old school dresses (notice the paint stains around the bottom, ha you'd think the paint they use in school would be washable wouldn't you?!).
here are a couple of flowers that I made, the 1 on the left is made with 1 strip of material twisted and hot glued onto a felt cirlcle. The 1 on the right is hand sewed using 5 circles cut from the material, a small bit of lace to fill in the middle and a button to finish, again with a felt patch on the back.  These both have brooch pins on the back so can be worn as a brooch or attached to a hairband!
and here is an example of a hairband (Hollie has gone to school wearing this one this morning!).  The 2 blue 'flowers' are made from material from a pair of outgrown pyjama bottoms!!

Please check out the blog for sponsor and prize details, which as you know by now are always fab!!

I love this colourful hair band so much. Also blue is my favourite colour. Its perfect match with your school dresses.
