Bee’s Diamond :)

Hi,

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…

Two up dos :)

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…

Craft… bookmarks

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 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

Hello there… back again

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.
