The color combo I chose for this month is blushing bride, pear pizzazz, wild wasabi, pool party, and real red. I have been obsessed with this color combo for a while and I think it's fun and bright and a bit retro, great for Christmas! It's traditional while being out of the box a bit! Lots of stuff at Target in these colors!
This is for the catalog focus this month and the challenge was to make some kind of wearable art. Well, I went for a headband for the holidays.
I used the candy cane Christmas fabric (it matches my color combo pretty well) to make a yo-yo (small polka dots) and a fabric rosette (striped). The red button is actually retired (sorry....I had that darn yoyo sitting on my desk for months but any current red button would work) and the green button is from the holly berry buttons in the mini. There are various tutorials on the internet (one on my blog for the rosettes) on how to make either embellishment.
The bow is red satin and a polka dot brad in pool party. I hot glued everything together and onto a small piece of felt and then hot glued that to the headband.
I think it's festive:-)
