Thanks so much for the nice comments! The ones in stores are so cheaply made that they fall apart or unravel pretty quickly. I am getting better at this, although not much faster, haha. I am crocheting the headbands too. I seem to be catching on to that quicker than knitting.
Not sure if I'm posting in the right group, but I've been experimenting with different materials to use for making hair clips for my daughters. I can't see paying the prices listed in the store, so thought I'd give making my own a go.
Here are some of the results:
Rolled Fabric Flowers
Thanks for taking the time to look. What do you think?
Hey All! I am new to crochet, but these headbands are a cinch!
I am making several for friends who are having babies, and including various color flowers to use with it as a set. They attach through a felt backing with slits, by inserting a normal mini hair clip. So even when the headband is outgrown, the flower can still be used as a hair clip, or slipped onto a plastic headband, or pinned to a shirt or jacket.
My daughter recently turned seven, and I made her this cowgirl outfit from my head. I don't like patterns, and it was pretty easy to do. I didn't make the hat, but I did make the vest and skirt. She loves the twirly fringe!
The cake I made for the hubby's fortieth birthday. It's a hill; half is luscious life and greenery, and the other side (which he had recently slipped down) is mud, and bones and death. It was fun to make!
