This one is really self-explanatory… It’s easy to make too if u get your toddler to sit still. I had to take help from the princess and lure her with two toothbrushes.. and finally my cell phone (which as always she promptly threw on the ground)
Make a partition in the front tie a loose pony tail. Then using a U-Pin, pull the hair through the pony tail. I really wanted to take a picture of this step but I just couldn’t get Bee to sit still. Hope u understand from the pic below.
Then part that pony in to two and add them to the other two pony tails (the pink rubber bands) and then combine all that into one last pony tail below.
My mom loved it so much when she saw it. more than that she liked how Bee sat still through it…
This was done on April 20. We had Puja here in my mom’s colony. The instructions can be found here.
I made micro braids in the front to keep away the fly-away hair. In the last section, instead of curling her tail end, i braided them too and wrapped them around the bun. And yes minus the spiders
This one i did yesterday for an engagement party. I started with a dutch braid on the front and continued braiding once all the hair was added. I made a circle of this braid on her head like a crown. Like so:
Then i made a braid of the remaining hair and rolled it like a flower and pinned it completely all over so that it doesn’t fall off with all the running around that she usually does…
In the end added that little flower pin and it looked cute…
I’ve started reading (again) recently thanks to a dear friend who happily lends her books to me and doesn’t pester me to return them back.
So I made some bookmarks to return them with the books I took from her. Some of these are actually cloth tags which were fancy enough to be used as one.
This next one was given to the princess at her school as a christmas gift.
This one is made after cutting the corner of an envelope in he shape of a heart and a teddy bear and roses from an old wrapping paper.
And another similar cloth tag… to cool to throw away….
This post is pecial to me. Today i will be posting my second daughter’s pics for the first time. She is a naughty and bubbky 15 month old chubby kid. and has quite a head of hair on her.
Here are few pictures of her hair.
Little-est Messy Buns
And a single pony, turned in at the last twist to look like a bun.
Lots of elastics and ponies and a lot of cajoling by her dad to stay still ended up giving this result
Her dad is holding her still (and stealing a kiss in the mean time) for this pic. # tooadorable
Thanks for watching….Ciao
I m very sorry for being away for so long… but i kinda got caught up in a lot things, the kids’ sickness being one of them. Seems like i have been in and out of clinics forever….
But enough of that, here are a few things that i did manage to do….
Here are a few photos of the princess’s hair.
This is a waterfall twist braid, one of the popular variation of the “waterfall” braid. The link to this can be found here.
This is just 3 uneven braids that I did. it turned out by accident. i was practising my French braid on her hair and i had three braids. I braided them together and this is what became of it. I think it looks cool kinda casual.
This is just standard Indian braid with ribbons. Here you start with a standard 3 strand braid (A) and when u reach the end, u add a ribbon to two of the strands and continue braiding right till the end of hair. Then make the second braid (B) and end it the same way. lastly, take the ribbon from strand A and tie it at the start of strand B and vice versa. The result is what u see below. I will try and add step by step pics next time.
Thanks for being patient. Ciao….
Sorry had been busy last month. But i did get to make a cute li’l craft for my Princess’ school project. Here are the step by step pics. Let me tell u everything that is used here was at home. We hadn’t purchased anything.
First i took a cardboard and cut it into the shape of tiny feet. I used the foot measurement of my brother’s 2 yr old daughter for this. But u can eyeball it too.
Then i made slits like so. 2 at the top for the thumb and 2 in the middle for the foot. first I marked the lines and then used a knife to slit them.
Then i covered it in some left over gifting paper carefully made slit again.
Then I took a regular drinking straw and flattened it with a knife for making the bands.
cut it appropriately in to two pieces, one small and one big, to put into the slits we made before
Then I stuck the pieces at the back with hot glue as shown above. (second pic)
Finally i gave the finished slipper to my daughter and she added the bling and it turned out like this….
The princess got a Christmas project to decorate a little Christmas tree. Her teacher gave her a cut-out to decorate which was promptly handed over to me
I painted it in green n brown poster colors and added glitter to look like confetti. Then i added little thermocol balls at the base. The tree sort of shriveled up after the paint dried. Here’s how it looks
Then i cut out a stencil from an old wedding card and stuck the tree on to it. Now the tree stood rigid and tall.
The teacher at her school just loved it. She especially loved the little bells.
Next project is 2 stars… will post the pics soon.
I didn’t know what to call this one (LOL). It’s just a simple style that is self-explanatory. The hair has been parted and tied up into little pony tails. Then i sectioned off the lower ones to form a diamond. The link to this tutorial can be found here.
The style featured there has more diamonds but since the princess was getting ready for school I had little time. It was her birthday that day so she wanted a fancy hairstyle to go with her dress.
Sorry about the picture quality. My camera acted up and i had to click these on my cell phone. It was a foggy monsoon morning so the light wasn’t good.
Last Saturday I tried this hairstyle on my princess. Its called the ladder braid and the tutorial can be found here. I didn’t follow the exact instructions so my princesses hair “ladder” looks all loose. Moreover although I had started with wet hair, by the time I finished one side, her hair had almost dried and I had to work with whatever I got.
later she git bored so I took her hair into a pony tail and wrapped this “ladder” around it.
Making her sit in front of the TV makes her a lot more patient than making her sit in front of a mirror :)
