Last week my family took our pictures for our holiday card. I wanted all of us to dress in coordinating colors. This year our colors were brown and red. I found a great, little plaid shirt for Kason that served as the inspiration. I found a super cute and chunky brown sweater for me, but I needed a fun red accessory.
Enter this insanely gorgeous rosette that Tanya made over at Trey and Lucy. I knew it would pack the punch I was looking for.
I followed Tanya's tutorial and watched her do it a few times (she has a video tutorial too), and then gave it a whirl. This is how mine turned out.
I used 1/4 yard of red broad cloth and it only cost .50! :) Isn't that incredible! I gave my best effort at hand sewing, but I ended up hot gluing some of it because of my lack of sewing skills. :)
I finished the back with a piece of red felt and a pin.
Here it is in action! The pin is gorgeous, and how about that little guy? SUTCH a cutie! :)
I let a friend borrow the pin for her family pics. She put it on her little girl's head band and it is just darling!
At that price, I will definitely be making more of these beauties! I know my girlfriends would love these for Christmas gifts too!
Here are a few more of my favorite pics from Sunday's shoot.
I hope you have a great Monday! Only three more days until turkey! :)
Partying HERE this week!
