Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

Rose Pink Hairpins


  1. These are so sweet! I am in love with the whale picture! I think I need to buy it to hang in my boys' rooms!

  2. I follow a blog that makes cute hairpins like that. I'm always so tempted to buy some. Now you make me want them all over again.
