stuck on HOW, designs not flowing
An Elongated Hexagon x 4 or a 3-D ornament. I have what I want to do in mind just not what to put on it. I really wanted the red bird in the pines on it but I already did that so now I am stuck. I also have not had any time to work on it. I've been mking hair accessories for GD#3 (2.5 yr old) since she and her cousin GD #2 (4 yr old) decided to play beauty shop Friday night..........complete with a haircut..........oh yes somewhere they found a pair of scissors........... here is Kylie's hair before...........with her long hair, she had her bangs pulled up in a top pony. Her mom was trying to get them to out, they were almost long enough.
and here is after.......Anyone need a free 5 minute hair cut by a 4 yr old? Check out Cami's new style, it'll be awhile before she passes her state boards, lol!
and lack of symmetry, Poor Kylie, see the bald spot in front of her ear. This picture was after Mandy (a friend) trimnmed the tails off the back to somewhat level it up to the sides. So I've been making more flower clips, and hair bows like in a previous post, crocheting headbands and hats. She is in a wedding in three weeks.......yikes!
Back to the hexagon ornaments I wanted to do something scrolly, swirly or something like that in the peaks, but couldn't decide about the square part. I know some are waiting very patiently but I am just putting the pattern out there...........keep in mind I only put this on paper.....................I have NOT tried to assemble this in fabric.......note: I decided after I did page one that I could lay them side by side and eliminate some seaming..............so if you want to experiment.........here they are first draft,, second draft is a 2 page PDF, Also aftter sewing the diagonal seams shut was going to add a bit of stuffing to keep it full. Then finish the last straight seam. Note the two versions, I think you can choose to print page one or page two. Use your own designs or choose some previous ones, like the red bird, lol!! I hope you have fun............I promise there will be a completed ornament and pattern this coming monday Nov 15. If you make any, send me pics or links to your blogs and I'll share them with everybody. Sorry it's been a crazy weekend.
so have a good time if you want to play and creat your own otherwise wait till next monday!! Cyndi
