2661  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Chunky Yarn Hair Falls on: August 17, 2011 11:07:13 PM
I recently just finished up the Hair Accessories Swap, and my last partner had on her wish list a set of hair falls.  I had no clue what she was talking about.  Hair falls?  I had never heard of it before.  After some craftster investigation I figured out I could probably whip of a set of these.

I got two skeins of chunky yarn.  The black/white one is Jo-Ann Sensations It's A Wrap Yarn, and I unfortunately don't remember what the purple one was called, but that it was a wool roving yarn.  I looped them around elastic in groups.







It reminds me of faerie hair! 

Thanks for looking!
2662  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / "Stays in Place" Ribbon Headband on: August 17, 2011 10:50:36 PM
I was determined to make my Hair Accessories Swap partner a headband of some sort, and decided to take a step out of my comfort zone and try my hand at sewing.  I have a sewing machine that I like to fight with, only because we don't know each other well.  I found a wonderful tutorial online on how to make Sweaty Band headbands.  They are wonderfully easy to make.  You need wide ribbon (mine was 1 1/2"), velvet ribbon, and elastic.  That's it!  Bam, boom, and you have a headband that stays in place! 

Here is the tutorial:  http://holy-craft.blogspot.com/2011/07/sweaty-bands-knock-off-revisted.html


Here's what mine turned out to be.  I see a future filled with these wonderful "stay in place" headbands, since they were so easy to make!

Yes yes, you haven't heard the last from me on freezer paper stenciling!  This time I did a design on a bandanna for my partner in the Hair Accessories Swap to go with her hair falls.  I found the image online somewhere. 

Here are the progress shots:


Here is the stencil all cutout and ironed onto the bandanna.  I've started applying the white paint with a foundation sponge.


The white paint is all on!


Peek-a-boo!


The finished design.



Thanks for looking!

lol im still hoping my partner posts pics of what i sent Smiley

Ditto!  I'm pretty proud of what I made for my second partner, so I think I'll post the pictures I took before I sent it off tonight if she hasn't done so by then.

YAY!  Freezer paper is so fun!  I've been playing around with it lately, as well.  I love that T-Rex one!  Its amazing that you can use your sewing machine to go around it like that.  I would never be able to do something like that.  Me and my sewing machine don't get along much.  There is much swearing and struggling.

Beautiful job on all the free-handing!

Awe you're so sweet! I totally understand how you feel. I'm actually starting something today to see how it will go. If all is good then the rest of the project will be a go. If not........ well, I will do something else. With this project, there's really no room for messing up and starting over  Undecided . I've practised it on another medium, though, and so far so good. I can't wait! I praying this pans out because if it does, well, Let's just say that I will be super thrilled and can't wait till the day you can open it!  Roll Eyes

Oooo, yay!!!  I hope all goes well in your endeavor!  I'm super excited to get it!  I worked on your frustrating item last night w/ great success!  I'm quite happy w/ the part I did.

I actually made some progress this weekend (how, I'm not sure since I made a large birthday cake and two freezer paper stenciled shirts for my nephew and went to his party)!  I finished one day, and have a bunch of partial days done, and I started a large project last night.  I messed up part of it and got frustrated w/ my silly mistake.  The hubby reassured me and said that I shouldn't just skip it and should try again since it will make it look really cool.  Thank goodness for a supportive husband.  I think I will be ready to give it another go tomorrow.  After all, he is right, the large item will look better w/ this one piece.
