Hairstyles that I made for my dear daughter

TBC Crafters 71 – Make Up Set for Dolly

My daughter Miss Porky really falls into making stuffs for her dolls these days. During the summer vacation when she has no summer camp, she discovered some channels in Youtube and watched how these Youtubers made things for their Barbie or Bythe or High School Monster dolls. I am kind of concerned and not concerned – she is mature/well-behaved enough to watch videos in Youtube. We have mutual understanding what can be watched and what cannot. I also monitor what they have watched by checking the watch history. Both of my children understand and know that their privileges would be taken away if they violate the rules.

What I concerned is that Miss Little Porky has made a whole bunch of crafts that I just cannot stand for her making the home a mess. She has paper scraps, cut pipe cleaners, beads, ribbon strips everywhere and glue stick on my computer table (which is also used as our craft table). Every night after I get off from work and open the front door, Miss Porky jumped out and has 2 sparkling eyes on her face, all excited and eager to show me what she has made. I am really happy that Miss Little Porky finds something that she likes, possibly she would be just like me – love crafting for the whole entire life!

Let me show you one piece of the dolly “project” that she has made a few weeks ago. (I know, I have been lazy and this should be posted earlier…) It contains 2 items- the eye-shadow palette and the nail polish bottles.

TBC Crafters 67 – Doll’s Dress Made with Sock 2

Ms. Little Porky loves making clothes for her Barbie doll. This piece was purely her work. I just took pictures and “recreated” her works. I cannot believe that she could make it herself and she did not ask for her or idea. 100% purely my Ms. Little Porky’s work!!!! She was so excited to learn that I would post it in my blog and this was the first time I mentioned about my “Girly Creation” blog. Ms. Little Porky loved the blog name and she was terribly happy when I told her that I would create a sub-page for her. She asked me all the time these days if I would put her projects online. I am now seriously thinking about the plan to let Ms. Little Porky showing her “girl’s creativity” and hopefully persuade more kids to enjoy being crafters.

Again, this is a simple craft project that you need only very limited materials. And, you possibly only need no more than a minute. Let’s start! Continue reading

TBC Crafters 66 – Doll’s Dress made with Sock

I bet that every family with kids would have a lot of single socks, ripped socks, old socks that your kids have outgrown from. What would you do to these socks? Donate them to thrifty stores? Hands down to other families with kids? Used them as utility towels to wipe down dirt? Or simply just throw away? If you have a daughter who loves to play with her Barbie doll, you should take a look of this project that I made some time ago with my baby Porky. Because of writing this post, I made a new dress for Porky’s Barbie doll tonight with Porky’s favorite Hello Kitty sock that she has outgrown from and it also has a small hole at the bottom, plus we have lost one of the pair.

To make a dress using a sock, I only need a sock and a pair of scissors, maybe a small rubber band that is used to tie Porky’s hair.

TBC Crafters 65 – Handbag Upcycled from Toddler Shorts

I have saved some of my children’s old clothes, prepare to give away or donate to Salvation Army. One of the little toddler shorts caught my eyes, my daughter used to love that pair of shorts. I still remember that she wore it to Gilroy Garden and they were perfect for the hot weather. With a little bit of sewing and creative juice, I made the pants into a handbag which my daughter can use it to store stuff when she goes out. She said that it is perfect for carrying her ballet shoes. Yes, actually it fits quite a bit of stuffs.

TBC Crafters 42 – Lace Fabric Hairtie

This post is supposed to be on last week but I was too busy to write up this blog post. Since my daughter learns dancing, she needs a lot of hair bands and hairties to tie up her hair into a bun or two. 2 weeks before, I saw one of my daughter’s dancing class classmates wear a lace hairtie which held the hair bun so firm. Her mom told me and some other mothers that she bought it from Daiso at $1.50 each. If you know how to sew or have a sewing machine at home, it is worth trying DIY as you would not find another one girl who has the same one like your girls.

Ingredients: –

A piece of fabric wherever size but must be in the shape of a stripe

Lace, matches the length of the piece of fabric

Elastic strings, prefer to be a bit wider

Needle and threads

How to make it?

1) Cut out a stripe of fabric, I used a piece of 4″ wide this time. I would try maybe 3″ and 2″ next time. 4″ is a little bit wide but needs to reserve space for lace.

2) Attach the piece of lace on the right side of the fabric and then fold the fabric up. Start sewing on the negative side of the fabric.

3) Sew all the way toward the end of the fabric, then fold the fabric inside out to form a long “tube” with lace attached on one side.

4) Insert the elastic strings into the “tube” and tie a knot.
