hard impossible to photograph a small dark closet. But here’s the fruit of yesterday’s labors. I just want to keep the closet door open all the time and stare. When I began this project it was supposed to be shelves for kids craft stuff and my fabric. But they were relegated to a big basket beside their little table.
This weekend, I made these little cuffs for Emma and me. One of those spur of the moment crafts. They were easy and fun. To Emma’s I added some grosgrain ribbon and then both are tied with a tiny loop of RicRac and a button. With mine, I was able to singe the ends with a match to keep it from fraying, but Emma’s just burned. oops. I’ll have to look for some of this for her cuff. It was a fun project. And I think they’d make great little birthday gifts for the little people in my life. I mean, if the cuffs are cool enough. I never really know anymore….!

i think the cuffs are very cool! and the closet looks great too!
Yay! What a great closet full of fabrics. Your Grandma’s fabrics are fantastic! The cuffs look great-I love the little rick rack loop
Definitely cool enough 🙂
looking at your closet is inspiring me to get a little order in my fabric stash. Oh to have fabrics like the ones from you grandma – how lovely.
Coming from the mom of a 7 (almost 8) yr old, these are over the top cool. Very cute!
What a great idea on the cuffs. A bit daggy to dress the same, but oh so cool to share great tast in jewellery 🙂
Your cupboard looks great – I did that with my pantry last week. Don’t know myself now that I can find ‘stuff’!
i think you have a great photo of your closet! I love those cuffs, they are so awesome. I am so glad you like your goodies, maybe I’ll have to make some wee hairpins for your little one ;0

I think I’d have to sit and stare at the stash of fabric too, beautiful! The little cuffs are a great idea(it must be cool if Emma’s agreed to wear it for a picture 🙂
The fabric closet looks wonderful. If only it could stay like that, huh?I think the cuffs are so great! Wonderful idea.
Yes, keep the door open, it’s lovely! I just did a cleaning/reorganinzing of my fabric stuff too! Love the cuffs.
Very nice!Now I have some really great ribbon (I wonder who from?) I might try some myself!
mommy and me cuties. so nice when they are still little and they let us match.
You know you give my courage for doing the same thing ! My craft room is like an exploded one with fabrics all around !! I must clean and reorganize all !! I promise to do it when I’ll be off this week 🙂 Did the bunny arrived to you yet ?! OOOh I’m so impatient 🙂
These are great, I’ll have to give it a try with some of my favorite ribbons 🙂
