Every week we travel to a friends house to join in the singing group she runs for a few families. My youngest loves this group and currently it is the only time in the week we do something, outside the house, specifically for her. A couple of weeks ago she rang to cancel the group for that week as her daughter was unwell. By the end of the week she had had a major operation. Luckily for her when she took her daughter to the GP (doctor) earlier in the week he had referred them to the hospital.
I really wanted to make a small gift for the daughter, something I could post as I was not sure when I would see them again and something that I could make with what I already had in the house. I decided upon a felt headband using the lovely book, The Children's Year, for measurements. The book suggests using small pieces of felt cut into shapes to decorate, I wanted daisies and used the Lazy Daisy Stitch with a French Knot in the middle. A small length of elastic sewn onto the felt and voilà a simple headband.
I can see more of these being made and if we use small pieces of felt, they could be made by my daughter, glued on then a simple running stitch round the edge of each small piece. A small simple project.
