Hair Stuff

I have finally finished a batch of headbands that have been on hold for quite some time. I wish I had a fake head to model them on. My son's teddy bear just didn't cut it :P You can get the idea though. I have been wearing one around the house & am happy with the fit. The undersides are a velvety ribbon which kind of "sticks" to the hair, causing less slippage. That is usually the biggest problem for me & headbands. High forehead, thin (but lots of) hair plus not a tiny head equals headband sliding to the back of my head not long after putting it on. These lasted all day!




Then there is my barrette. I had just finished making a backpack & had some strips of fabric sitting off to the side. So I sewed them together, cut out some circles & sewed it all down with a couple buttons. Not the most attractive, but cute...plus, it's just to try the process. I was giving it a second look & decided it looks like a face almost. SO I may try to alter it to look monster/alienish. Teeth maybe? Or a tongue? Not sure yet. Any ideas?



This is the other strip I randomly sewed together for a barrette. I tentatively pinned it into a shape I like. Still not quite sure if I want to add anything or not. Well see.

Very cool! And that does look like a face. I vote for teeth. Or maybe eyebrows. :)

Those look great! And yes, they do stay in place nicely :)

The barrettes are fun too! I like the random-ness of them :)
