Oh Dear! Poor Abby I feel I must apologize to the makers of Sesame Street for this one.
I've seen million of those hair bow holders and thought how cool would to make an Abby Cadabby. Here's the problem folks, my brain is willing but the talent is weak.
She has little ponytails that could be used to hang the bows, this was my "inspiration"
So I grabbed the supplies
Metal stove top cover
So I covered the burner thing in pink vinyl, then I cut out the face pieces, I just used scissors, and scrapbook punches - which by the way, crap for vinyl.
Then I remembered she had 6 freckles, how did I remember this, Madeleine has a Sesame Street numbers DVD that she insists on watching 40 million times a week and no jokes, I know the whole DVD off by heart. It honestly scares me, what valuable memories have been replaced by these songs.
So I looked around and that's when I came up with the idea of rhinestone freckles, because friends, apparently her freckles sparkle.
Then I tried the hair, I wanted those ponytails to sit up all perky, I glued it on after playing around with it.
I hated it! I honestly was about to throw it out when Madeleine gets up from her nap, and full of excitement she says Abby. Great can't throw it out now.
So I put some hair bows on it and called it a day.
DIY Delight or Disaster?
Disaster! I really hate this thing! Abby looks like she got caught in the rain and wasn't able to fix her hair.
Now please tell me, that you've had something that didn't work out as planned and your kid latched on to it and there was no going back?
Thanks for reading, I apologize that you set your eyes upon this.
