Since making re-usuable birthday decorations in 2008 I decided that I should add a new decoration every year for my kids’ birthdays. They fall in the last week of December so I made a small felt sign with a lacey cake.
I used velcro on the sign so I could change out the decoration on the cake, the number on the cake and the name tag at the top. It was a big hit! I’m not showing the kids’ name-tags to protect our privacy a bit.
I’ve wanted a sleeping cap for years so I did some internet browsing to find a shape that might work for me. I chose a basic stovepipe. I used an old t-shirt and cut two circles and a large rectangle(head circumference X 16 inches with seam allowance). I folded the rectangle in half lengthwise and sewed the raw edges to the double layer circles. Then I sewed the back seam. 15 minutes start to finish.
It’s very serviceable and comfortable but I look truly frightening in it. So I need to find a more suitable style so I don’t scare my husband and kids.
