Easter bonnet fun and still crafting a year on

Today, Lil Miss J and I spent the afternoon making her Easter bonnet.  I had never thought of myself as having enough patience to sit and craft something from scratch, but this is what got me into crafting precisely one year ago when I had to make her an Easter bonnet. You can see what I made last year here. What can I say - having children changes you in ways you never imagined!

Since then, I have been introduced to a whole new world of crafts out there, visited so many blogs, got so much inspiration, discovered Pinterest (how I love that site!) and generally had a whale of a time.  I'd like to say thank you to my friend Marisa, who blogs over at The M Chart for getting me into this and still continuing to inspire me!

This was a budget project - hat from the 99p shop, as were the little chickies.  The flowers were cut out from felt I had on hand and I had the feathers to hand too. The little pink streamers came out of a gift bag that someone had given me!! This was the final result and Lil Miss J will get a chance to wear it for an Easter bonnet parade tomorrow :)
