Hey Ro! Yes, you, the one wearing the smug little grin. I see that you put on your sister’s new skirt today and are pretty proud of yourself. You do look all cute and fresh and springy, but here’s the thing. I made a new “M” hairclip for your sister to wear with that skirt.
Whatever... hurriedly cutting felt while eating cereal is a little dangerous, but it worked... And I can always clean up the edges after school...
The four white beads on Ree’s clip looked better in my head than they did in real life, by the way. Next time I’m trying sequins or tiny buttons. Cheers.
PS: A few folks asked how I cut out the letters. I print the letters out on manila folders, then cut them out and use the now-stiff letters as patterns. I used a font that doesn’t have any curves or embellishments so the cutting is easy (these are Bell Gothic Black, size 90). Then I just hold the pattern against the felt and cut with the new supersharp, small Fiskar scissors I got at Michaels. I hold the scissors so the pointed ends close right at the end of my cut (so I don’t need to try to stop in mid cut). And that’s about it. A fancy Cricut or Silhouette or something would be way easier, but this is free.
