Fixing the Hello Kitty hat – A crafty evening project!

My daughter started preschool last January. This means that she now spends most of her days in a state of preparation for kindergarten. If that isn’t enough for a little brain, we’ve found a school that does 2 days of immersion in English (French being her first language). Some think that it’s a bit too much a 3 1/2 yo, but little do they know that my daughter requested it. Before that, she was in a family run daycare with a lovely daycare provider that we loved, but she was bored. She started acting out, not being herself. So to preschool she went and she couldn’t be happier.

But when evening comes, she’s spent… If she wasn’t 3, she would just fall out at 6 I think, but being 3, she is convinced she’s not tired. I’m sure many of you know exactly what I’m talking about.

So, part of our nightly routine has been doing some sort of craft, something to relax her mind, help her focus and send her to bed feeling accomplished : Like if everything she does all day isn’t enough! She’s gonna be an over achiever this one, I can tell you that! Usually, it’s all about painting or drawing, but we did a LOT of that this week-end. So I thought I would try something new.

My daughter owns a Hello Kitty winter hat that unfortunately quickly lost its bow due to it being only glued in place. I kept telling her I would replace it, but the hat eventually found itself into a box at the top of the closet and Hello Kitty went unfixed.

This morning, I received an email update from one of my favorite kids craft site, Red Ted Art and came across this fun little scrappy fabric flower project that seemed perfect for the evening and for saving the cat hat!

I will try to share with you my days as they unfold, speaking of my happy successes without censoring my challenges, trying to make this blog a true portrait of the ever-changing path that I have chosen for myself. I'm hoping to find in these pages others to share with and learn from, bringing to light the absolute connection in all things and people, showing this world as being a true community.
