Happy Easter!

Not only can I create magic with fabric, I think I do alright with a sheet of cellophane, some sticky tape and fluffy chicks and a length of boa feather! As thats all it took to create Grace's easter bonnet for the school parade this year. Extra ticks for me for recycling the yellow boa feather from last year's bonnet!! This was constructed at 11pm the night before the parade, I was stapling that cellophane down with great determination to just finish the thing. She woke the next morning and was thrilled.

Happy easter everyone!

Now that's what Easter should look like! What a cute hat, and girl.

Here in Chicago it's snowing and windy and COLD. No one will be showing off their Easter outfits outside here on Sunday.

I'm in awe! My children have yet to have an Easter hat parade and I dread the day! May steal your idea if I ever need to!
