Flower Pony Tail Holders

It's a little ironic that my child who lost all her hair due to Leukemia treatment is sewing flower pony tail holders.

A few months ago she received a wig which is actually part of her dance costume. The wig contains two thick braids and these are perfect for the bottom of the braids. She also plans to use them when her hair grows back.

This is an excellent beginning sewing project. My daughter is only five and can now make them completely on her own. This summer when my mom stayed with us to help out during the initial phase of treatment, she taught the girls to sew yo-yo flowers. They have used them to decorate shirts and headbands and even made a doll completely out of yo-yo flowers.

We do tons of sewing and crafting projects. To see more of them please visit our craft page.

  4. I am in shock at your 5yr old can sew these. My daughter is 5 and I am not sure she could do it. I guess practice makes perfect, I need to get her sewing! Thanks so much for sharing on We Made That!

    1. Every child is different. My 5 year old really enjoys sewing. There is no way my 9 year old son could have made these and I think it would be a challenge for him today. He's just not interested.... but he can open the garage door for me that I can never get my key to work in, loves the show How It's Made, is a whiz at computers and knows all of the stats on the Apple i products.

  5. The yo yo flowers by your sweet girl is adorable..I love it

  6. ilove your little angel's yo yo flowers. so sweet... i like it and love it...

  7. Thanks for sharing the yo yo flowers. Your daughters are adorable.

    I found this post at the Pin Me Linky Party #21 and will be pinning it.

  8. They look so cute and it is so sweet that your daughter is making them on her own! I need to try some projects like this with my girls.
    Thanks so much for linking up at Real Family Fun.
    Take care,
