A Homespun Year....1 minute projects....Dancing Ribbons...

Here's a quick and easy project for you to make for the 3-8 year old in your life.
All you need is thrifted bangles, or ones rescued from the depths of your own jewellery box, and several spools of brightly coloured double satin craft ribbon.
Cut lengths from your spools of ribbon that are about your arms length.
Tie them to the bangles in contrasting strips.
That's it.
Let your little sweethearts pretend to be Olympic Gymnasts. Fun!
A reminder that Five Star Frou-Frou is now a never ending linkup, with a featured blogger and post each and every time I post!
You can find the linkup here.
Todays feature is my namesake, the 'other' Mimi, who has a fabulous blog on fashion for we 'more lovely for longer' ladies. I love her posts at In My Prime Time and this one on colours for the coming season, is a goodie.
I do love those elegant neutrals at the bottom right hand corner, but confess that the pinks on the top row caught my eye too!
To everyone who has been linking, stay tuned for your features over the next few days!
Love to all!

  7. I just recently did this project for my 3 year old daughter - she had an old princess dress that was all torn and I had used her satin liner for the ribbon part. I like the ribbons better, though, so I will give it a try next time around. Thanks for sharing!


I love hearing from you! I always respond to comments, so don't be shy! Mimi xxx
