I had a fun and productive Saturday yesterday. I started out early heading to school to work on report cards and furniture moving and arrangement. (Note: Long story shortish. Our school is quite decrepit and old. We had a ground breaking last week and the day after a construction fence went up closing down our playground for the last 2 weeks of school. A little over a year from now we will have a new school! In the interim I went 'shopping' in some retiring teacher's classrooms and scored myself a great u-shaped teaching table. The downside was that all the furniture swapping has to happen NOW, not after school is out, so that the excess furniture can be more out of the building before construction commences.)
By the time I got home we had a houseguest for the remainder of the day/evening. A friend's 6 year old needed last minute babysitting so they could go to the Seattle Sounders game (awesome, come-from-behind-winning game by the way!!!!). While Big G took the 2 bigger kids to the park, Little G and I had a nap and did a little Pinterest browsing. I came across a fun and simple double-layer felt crown. How fun and easy! I pulled out the machine and headed to the basement to find my stash of left-over Halloween costume felt. I drew out a pattern, cut my first layer of felt, sewed it to a long skinny contrasting layer of felt, stitched around the outline of the cut piece, and finally trimmed away all the excess from the rectangle piece.
All in all, I was super happy to have taken one of the bazillion Pinterest ideas that I pin and turn around and create it in under an hour!
