Okay, I actually don’t have a biological niece, but this one may as well be my own. I’ve talked about her before (remember Lydia & Zydia??) and I’ve gone on about my best friend Sareena, her super sweet momma.
I could go on forever about all of the nice, completely unnecessary, but appreciated beyond words, things Sareena has done for me. She is the most thoughtful person I know, always picking up something for me because it made her think of me. I know no one kinder.
So when I saw a bunch of adorable plain headbands and Hobby Lobby, I thought: “I want to make a headband for Lydia and Sareena. It’s perfect.” Can’t be that hard, right?
It certainly wasn’t. I’m no sewing expert, but I can pull together a solid stitch. So armed with my headband, sewing kit, flowers of choice, and a few buttons, I attempted to reciprocate my friend’s kindness.
I went with a bright purple-orange combo for the coming summer months and because I knew Sareena would love those colors. I stitched the flowers on with a clean white button holding them in place, somewhat lopsided for effect.
I didn’t remember to pick up an equally cute gift bag, but I did make one quickly with a brown paper bag I had lying around and some ribbon.
Simple, easy, and thoughtful. Isn’t that the way all things should be?
