Fabric Rapunzel Hair -- needle and thREAD

So excited to be able to join in again this week with needle and thREAD over at In The Heart Of My Home.
needle and thREAD



I could have waited to post some of my other sewing from earlier this week but clearly I have an instant gratification problem and compulsively share my projects before my machine even has time to cool.

Today, I'm here to unveil what can only be described as pure sewing silliness.


Yes, Rapunzel hair made out of fabric and yarn.


So silly.



I made it split into three pieces so it could be braided, but the braiding idea didn't go over well with Rapunzel.


Yesterday my Roo had this dress on and I told her she looked like Rapunzel -- all she needed was some hair.



My brown haired girl had it on and she was rather hysterical, but she's too fast for photos!


For a second there, I bet you thought I never sewed with anything but cotton.


Oh no - here's living proof that I own purple satin!  It's leftover from this dress which I think was before this blog's time.


As far as reading goes (this is needle and thREAD after all), I picked up Secrets of the Baby Whisperer by Tracy Hogg for a few minutes this week.  I can't remember where I got it and I'm pretty sure I won't make it through it, but I can tell you that reading the first few words was good for me.  She talks about respecting your baby and treating your baby like a person.  So simple, but why so easy to forget?

Gotta go, I think I hear the kids fighting over the Rapunzel hair in the yard -- check out everyone else's links through needle and thREAD.  I'm always inspired when I do.

  1. Found you over at Needle and thread. Cute hair...great idea. I read parts of the Baby Whisperer, interesting stuff but didn't get too far with it. Have a great day!

  2. That's awesome! My daughter would love that. She uses printed flannel receiving blankets for her Rapunzel hair.

    1. Thanks! Your daughter sounds like she would get along swimmingly with mine -- we use receiving blankets for all sorts of stuff around here too :o).
