Happy Girls :)

A while ago while blog hopping I made a lovely discovery - and I must admit that I was attracted by the lovely title - who wouldn't smile at the title "Happy Girls"? I was smitten! I knew that I just had to have a go - and I wasn't disappointed! As luck would have it, I had just been given a box of wooden beads and at the time I hadn't a clue what I would do with them! They were actually originally one of those car seat covers made of different coloured beads, thanks Roger!

My only slight problem, and one that I shall warn you about, is to ensure that your double sided tape is man enough for the job - mine most certainly is NOT :( I am thinking that I might blanket stitch around the ones I have already made although this means that they won't be the quick and easy project that they were meant to be. I guess the good thing about getting the needle and thread out is that I could embroider a little flower on to their dresses ..... I also couldn't get hold of any hemp thread, but found that thick cotton thread bought from a hardware shop did the trick.

In case you want to have a go at making your own Happy Girls, here is the link and the fab tutorial!

Hope you like them as much as I do! I thought they would be cute tied onto pressies, maybe on a card or an ATC - now there's an idea! This months ATC theme is "Things that make me Smile", and these happy girls certainly do that!!!
