|She LOVES to sort her buttons...|
|She used up all my cupcake papers...|
The thing is -- at the age of five -- Lilly likes to do things BY HERSELF...which is why we often have to deal with impossible knots...
THEN IT HIT ME...the answer might be right there in Lillian's button collection.
|Inspired, of course, by Mary Mulari's favorite sewing accessory -- THE PONYTAIL HOLDER..!!|
|I sewed on one big button, then brought ONE tie around her back, and sewed the elastic pony tail holder in the right spot.|
AND I'm gong to modify some aprons for ME -- FAT GRANDMA -- using a much larger elastic HEADBAND...because, wouldn't that be a lot easier than trying to tie a knot behind my back?? (and, who are we kidding, most of my vintage aprons do NOT have ties long enough to fit me -- much less tie a nice big bow...)
yep...I'm loving it...
