Hello Wednesday - Belt it in

Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday  "hello wednesday" It's all down hill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!

I think todays project is just a little sweetie, and if it takes you more then 5 minutes I will come and do it for you! Now that is not something I offer very often.

Poor Mollie is always losing her trousers, she doesn't seem to have a waist, she wanders around with the very elegant look of a "builder" - I am sure you know the style I mean. 

This simple belt has solved the problem, and as I said it took under 5 minutes to make.

All you need is a couple of D rings a length of ribbon and a needle and thread - that is all.

The ribbon I used is a woven style and is reversible, we have a couple of these on the website, this heart one was just perfect for little pink Mollie, you can find it HERE.  There is also a dottie version in Pink/Brown and Lime/Pink both can be found HERE.

Decide how much ribbon you need to go around the waist, and leave some extra ribbon to hang down. 

Place one end of the ribbon through both D rings, fold the ribbon over so the D rings are trapped between the ribbon and sew a few stitches to secure the ribbon in place - THAT'S IT!

Have a play with some ribbons and see what belt styles you can come up with, all the children in our family LOVE ribbon.  When we are out shopping together, Sam will pick up rolls of ribbon and shout "ALI". We are still trying to teach him the word RIBBON, but he knows best and replys "NO, ALI".

 

It sounds as if the girls have been looking after you. YES, we have got prezzies for them, as well as a French Picnic for today, with lots of wonderful treats. So if you call the warehouse just after 1pm, you may find that it takes the girls a little longer to answer the phone!!!

We had a wonderful time, the weather was totally fab so we are relaxed, rested and raring to go. I have lots of things planned, which you will see appearing over the next few weeks.  Can't tell you any more because I have not told the girls yet, and I am always getting into trouble for telling them last. I do not want to be in the dog house on my first day back!!

Well done to Marg and Lisa for winning Bev's Bag in the Friday FREEBIE this week, I have limited internet access when I am away, but I caught up with all the goings on during the ferry trip home.  Well, it is so boring that I make sure I have lots of things to do, and I was also trying to take me my mind off the fog bank we went through.  I hate fog horns, they are so scary, the fog distorts all sounds and you have no idea where it is coming from, it's not so bad when you are on a big Sea Cat and someone else is in charge, but on a small sailing yacht where your husband is the skipper, it's terrifying!!
