Easter Hat Parade Angry Birds style!

Today was Sebastiaan’s Easter Hat Parade. No bunnies or chickens for this little fella though. Angry Birds was what he wanted, specifically ‘the blue bird coming out of a shell’. First attempts were at a paper mache version, but with the incredible humidity we have been having it was a disaster to say the least. So a cardboard one it was with a few styrofoam eggs painted as birds and pigs. We had fun making it together and he was rather chuffed with himself in the parade too.

Upcycled chinos

My friend Jane was clearing out her wardrobe and I scored some of her stuff for my upcycling projects. I finally got around turning a pair of  chinos into a bag. I purchased some quilting fabric on sale for the lining. Can’t wait to use it! I also used some of the material and one of the side pockets in a bag for a friend (see Back in the saddle!)
