Cherished Bliss PDF Pattern Lucy Rose Review

The Lucy Rose PDF Pattern

I hear the oohies and ahhies already. I love the photograph work! Seriously, it makes me want to have another baby.

So, this is the photo for the Lucy Rose PDF pattern by Cherished Bliss.

She had put feelers out into the cyber community a few months ago for testers on her patterns.

She got busy. I got busy. Kids, electronic devices, and email addresses disappear due to the little fingers with a button titled delete; is always an exciting time in our households. ***Note kids don't always get that delete isn't a good thing** Enough about the kids onto the project at hand.

So, when I first got the patten, I have to be honest I almost cried. I have instructions to make fabric roseittas. They didn't turn out at all. Actually, if it were a class on making them originally, I would have failed with a big fat F.

I can't get the photos of me making the second round of roseittas for the review. They stuck on my cell phone which is down until Friday when I get more minutes added to it and duck tape to keep the battery in place. I lost the back to it and ran out of minutes all in the same day. Yes, folks that's the honest truth!

I do have photos of the finished product though.

I know a little big. Though the fabric, hot glue, and I were having a little war for about three hours to make these all. If I were better at making them then it would be less time consuming. Time doesn't matter to me not when I show you the final results and the fact many girls at the school are jealous of my kids because of their hair gear.

Now after following instructions in the pattern here is the fininshed product.

The only thing different about my headband and the instructional one is the button is on the inside. Not the outside. No feathers. I had to consider where it was being worn too. School, other kids have to be able to see the board whither it be a chalk board, a dry erease board, or an actual smart board.

I also sewed the sems flat verses having that thick sem.
***Note using three big roseittas make it heavy for the older children. Keep to two only***

I made one per the instruction shown below. I made one like a standard headband.
Both are super cute. Both are original per the child.
I will be having a custom order section available for the per instruction headband in the
I have Ashley's permission to do so. 

Okay at first, I couldn't find the elastic lace band at my local watering hole for supplies.
Waving a big hello to Ms. Judy and Ms. Cheryl in the craft department. Wonderful ladies.

So, I came up with alternative design based on the pattern instructions. These supplies where about $4.50 for at least over six headbands if you use clearance supplies. Did I ever tell you, that I am master at finding clearance sales. The supplies for the Lucy Rose using clearance products and regular price was about $6.50. I do have material left over for more from both stashes.

I have five more ready for sale in the shops.
Keep watching the store fronts this week for these. They have really big flowers!

Unforunately, all plans for my kids to where these to school today where thrown out the door like yesterday's trash. We have allergy attacks turning into sinus infections, ear infections, and hopefully no bronchitis! It will mess up the soccer season.
