It is my baby sister’s 21st Birthday and since I am the nerdy big sister, I decided to make her a Happy Birthday pin. So, this morning somewhere in between taking the kids to school and drying my hair I made this pin.
My pics are crappy (as always) but she was working the pin and made it look super cute. She promised to get me a pic of her wearing it today ’cause it looks totally adorable on her. See what I mean? She made it look cute!
It was totally easy to make. I just bought some fat quarter fabric at Joann’s and a bag of little wooden discs for crafting and glued it up. The “Happy Birthday” is a fabric appliqué that actually came from the scrapbooking section. It glued up fast and easy and she wore it all day. It’s actually a pretty fun idea for kids and I can’t wait to make them for the girls’ birthdays.
Here’s another pic of her modeling the pin and the finger knit scarf/necklace thing I made for her. (The scarf actually doubled as a really cool bow for her present. Oh how I LOVE finger knitting!)
She’s too cute. And doesn’t look even remotely 21. Which she will appreciate immensely when she’s almost 30 with two kids and a minivan.
Lest you think me a terribly dorky and out-of-touch sister who gives finger knit scarves and crafty pins for a 21st bday present, check out her real present. I got her a set of these from Crate and Barrel which are so totally fun (who doesn’t love anything miniature?) and her very first Cosmopolitan mixer kit!
