Details of swap:
This is a “light” summer swap for hair accessories.  Everyone will get a small group of partners and will make a hair accessory of some sort for everyone else in their group.  For example, if you were in a group of 5 people, you would make & send 4 hair doo dads and get 4 in return.  Hair accessories can include headbands, hats, barrettes, decorated chop sticks, hats, clips, hair scarves…anything to add a little sparkle to your hair!  The size of the group will depend on the number of signups.  However, it will be no more than 5 people.   You only have to send one hair accessory to each partner - that's it.  If you want to send more, that is up to you & your partner(s).

Although this is an easy swap, please make sure to put some effort into making something your partner would like.  Make sure it is something that you would enjoy receiving and wearing.  Because it is an easy swap, the send date is 2 weeks after you get your partner.  No DC is required because these will probably be mostly in envelopes, but please be prepared to send a replacement if your item gets lost.  

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

this looks like fun, would be way quick and simple, always looking for quick fun ways to fix my long hair that needs to be up for almost anything I leave the house for.


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: bronzfrog on June 06, 2009 05:50:55 AM
This would be fun for my daughter.  Not sure I'll have time to open a spot.


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: pops on June 06, 2009 06:38:45 AM
ooh, this looks good! have to check that i am clear from my first swap first (sent/recieved & feedbacked so should be fine!)

yay for summer pretties!


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: pretty hate machine on June 06, 2009 06:50:30 AM
I think I just might have to take this. Even though the 2 weeks seems a bit short for me (I always take my time gathering supplies, especially now that me and my stash 300km apart), being a lazy crafter. But I'm already thinking all the pretty things I could make for people... :) I think I'll just fill my questionnaire and then see...!


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: Riechan on June 06, 2009 10:36:47 AM
I think it's a bit weird, the one thing for one thing in return
for example: A headband and 1 clip aren't on the same level
maybe like: 1 headband = 2 clips = 1 hairbarrettes = 1 hair scarf = ... = and a hat is more points? don't you think?
or some sort of list?


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: pops on June 06, 2009 11:07:28 AM
well i'm in! questionnaire is going in now...

I'm already thinking all the pretty things I could make for people... :)


that's exactly what i'm doing!



Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: donniesgirl on June 06, 2009 12:01:01 PM
I think it depends on what goes into each item.  The effort for a clip might be less than a headband, but the materials might cost more or a lot of detail might go into it.  Or a headband could involve a lot of work if it's an intricate crochet or has embroidery versus a floppy bucket hat.  That's why I asked to be sure to send what you think is an appropriate amount of work.  Plus, I wanted to just keep it easy since there are so many variables. 

I'd say use good judgement.  If you feel like a clip didn't take much effort, then feel free to send two.  There is no penalty for going above & beyond, but the minimum is one item.  :)

YAAAAAAAAY this is going to be fun and easy.  Also an excuse for me to shop for hair accessory supplies.  ;D


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: Riechan on June 06, 2009 01:21:24 PM
damn now i wanna join ^^
i need another headband and a hat ^^


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: ysmeine on June 06, 2009 02:55:11 PM
I assumed small barettes and clips would be two as that is how they are packaged and how they are worn. That way you can pull both sides back. Sometimes I wear four, I have alot of hair.


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: SimplyFabulous! on June 07, 2009 09:54:13 AM
Im in!  I assume clips or barrettes would come in sets of two.


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: pretty hate machine on June 07, 2009 01:08:23 PM
^^^^ Same here, I like having pairs :D Though if the barrette is big, then I think it would be okay to send just one.


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: ysmeine on June 07, 2009 02:34:46 PM
My favorite hair sticks were a simple wire with bells. It had three loops that were hammered and each had three bells. I lost one in the woods though. I have another pair of thin wrought iron spikes with tassles on the ends. My hair is just getting long enough to wear them again. Maybe I will et a chance to make some for this swap.


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: moxiepurple on June 07, 2009 10:47:58 PM
I'm waiting for my hair to be long enough to use hair sticks again.


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: pops on June 07, 2009 11:58:39 PM
i have never got the hang of using hairsticks! i don't know if it's becasue my hair is too long and thick and slips unwound because of that, or if i'm wrappping and pinning it wrong!  :D  ::)



Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: ysmeine on June 08, 2009 12:04:35 AM
With shorter hair I tend to use a forked hair stick. When it is longer, I have to braid it first. I have real thick hair too.


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: raeraethejetplane on June 08, 2009 12:58:02 AM
This looks really cool! But I am not sure if I have the time. My hair is down to my elbows but the sides of my head are shaved like a Mohawk. While the hair cut is still versatile I use less of my pretty hair things...


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: ozarkcat on June 08, 2009 09:19:54 AM
Oooh, I'd love to do this, but will be at Lilies War (SCA) from the 12th until the 21st - would this be a problem? I have no problem with getting these put together in a day or two, if that helps . . . .Thanks!


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: juliel85 on June 08, 2009 01:39:57 PM
I'm in!  I haven't swapped in awhile, but this sounds like a perfect beginning-of-summer swap!  :)


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: jadeye on June 08, 2009 01:53:12 PM
I love doing burlesque type hair pieces with feathers, netting and such if anyone is interested, but if I do clips I'll probably only do one, not a set of 2, they're a bit more involved to make


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: ysmeine on June 08, 2009 01:57:42 PM
Ooh, I don't have the vacation time this year, but I hope to go to Lillies next year.


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: half pint on June 08, 2009 09:59:41 PM
i'm in. just sent in the questionnaire.
i'm just finishing up a swap with donniesgirl and came up with a good headband pattern, so i'm hoping to use that.

Post by: pops on June 09, 2009 04:36:50 AM
i put uk only but i'm wondering now if it would be better, if there's not tons of UK people, if i were open to sending outside UK? seeing as the packages will be small, therefore cheaper to send overseas...

i guess it depends on how many brits we have in this swap!

~edited for atrocious spelling!~


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: donniesgirl on June 09, 2009 07:42:44 AM
pops - I can try to pair you up with Brits, but usually, we don't have 5 in a swap.  I think the most I've had is 2-3.

feathers - fun!  and I love netting, or anything that has a 1940s vibe!


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: pops on June 09, 2009 08:20:21 AM
thanks donniesgirl, i'm ok with sending a couple of things to the US, i checked out the mail prices for letters/small packets and they're do-able, but brits for preference! (tight aren't i?!)

i think with a LOT of dark brown, straight, thick hair, i can afford to go competely frivolously pretty on my hair! feathers/netting huh? .....sounds like i may be in over my head!


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: donniesgirl on June 10, 2009 08:05:29 AM
Not at all - I've shipped some very small things to the UK or even Canada for way too much money!  The post is kind of a racket sometimes.  I don't blame you!  :)

Post by: dip_n_dot on June 10, 2009 11:49:41 AM
so i vowed to stop swapping for a while because i was getting way ahead of myself and wasn't crafting for myself, but then i saw this swap and i LOVE having fun stuff to spunk up my hair especially since its summer time and i'll be wearing my hair up alot the fun flowers and stuff adds pizazz!


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: Riechan on June 10, 2009 12:12:44 PM
send my info ^^

I think we should all post photos of our hair ! :D


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: moxiepurple on June 10, 2009 02:59:38 PM
I already bought some things to craft onto once I get my partners.

I second the photos of your hair idea, just need to go take a photo now.

Thinking about this one. It really depends on whether I get a flash of inspiration for my current swap before these signups end. I'm really posting to remind myself that I'm thinking about this one. ;)


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: Acadian Driftwood on June 10, 2009 04:38:17 PM
I am doing the same thing, Muria. I hope to make this one, I'll be thinking about it! My hair is out-of-control long, and I really would like to do more with it than simple braids.

Yep, that's my hair, too.  I have this one annoying piece of hair on either side of my head that's curly, and breaks off at about 1 1/2" long, so I always have a little bit sticking up. The rest is waist-length.  My favorite styles tend to be either doubled up ponytails (make a ponytail in your hand, grab the bottom, and put the hair tie over all of the hair so that the bottom of the ponytail is a bend at the halfway mark), braids (usually French braided so I can get those little bits that stick up), or barrettes at the back of the top of my head (which means I get hair in the way when I have to bend over for something, unfortunately).  I've done a couple other things over time, but those are the old standards when my hair gets this long.  I used to do hair combs on the sides, but they fall out more now that my hair's all one length.

I've occasionally considered that it would be really easy to make those EZ combs from the infomercial, but if they really give you what they claim to for $10, the only reason to make your own is if you want a special color or beads. If I join, I was thinking of either making a floral fascinator of some type, or maybe try doing these  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=279710.msg3166665#msg3166665), while making one for me as well, naturally.  ;D

Post by: Riechan on June 11, 2009 02:32:09 AM
I have dark, brown a bit longer than my shoulders long curly hair :D because of the curls it's rather thick :)
I wear it loose (with a headband I recently bought online *yippy* or without), ponytail, up with a thing with claws (I can't find the right English word ...) , with a barrette (although I broke my only barret :s), with clips (mostly with a ponytail), 2 ponytails :D, ...


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: ysmeine on June 11, 2009 04:33:24 AM
I have shoulder length hair dark brown hair, I am growing it out again. I usually wear it in a pony tail or half pony for work. I have trouble getting barrettes big enough or I would wear one. I love hair pics when it is longer. I will wear it down or with small barrettes when I go out.


Title: Re: Super Simple Hair Doo Dads Swap
Post by: dip_n_dot on June 11, 2009 06:41:08 AM
My hair is just past my shoulders and its blonde, but yesterday i started making my hair wicked awesome!
I put pink in my hair yesterday on the bottom like the 2 tone thing you see a lot I haven't finished yet i decided it need some more pink and im going to lighten my blonde just a tad so the contrast will be freakin sweet!!!

but my hair is naturally a FRO....haha i look like a lion after blow drying my hair so if i just throw mousse in it and let it air dry i have those natural from the beach waves or i flat iron it, but now that it is summer time pony tails are going to be the style....i SO wish i knew how to french braid i know how to do it but i can't really do it to myself  :'(

I just sent in my questionnaire. Yay! I couldn't resist!
I'd also like to see pics of everyone's hair. You can sort-of see mine in my profile picture, but here's a glimpse of how long it is. May be a bit longer than that by this point, that pic is from a while ago.

i SO wish i knew how to french braid i know how to do it but i can't really do it to myself  :'(

It just takes some practice. You can just hold two of the pieces, and let the other one (that you're adding in next) dangle.  If you hold two of them in one hand, you can put your other arm down to rest (if you're having trouble keeping your hands over your head for that long).  One summer, I got bored with my hair, and made an effort to do something a little different with it each day (including an idea from a magazine that made it look like my hair was in curlers.  ::)  Not all magazine ideas are good). I did rope-style braids, headband braids, and even braided it from the back to the front once.

I do admit that some French braid styles are easier for me than others.  I can't do the reverse one (the one where the braid ends up on top instead of underneath) very well because I've done it the other way so often that if I don't concentrate, I flip back to the other way.

I have a question. Do we have to make just one thing? For example, bobby pins are kind of small and just one set seems kind of lacking. Sorry if that's a total n00b question!

I asked the same question on the first page.
You make whatever you think it is right. But like hairclips or bobbypins they mostly come in pairs of 2. (see first page ;) )

I'm in Fort Worth! I just moved back to TX and am exploring a lot.  This weekend I get to go visit my friends in Austin and am not-so-secretly hoping they will invite me to come visit every day for all time.

Post by: juliel85 on June 14, 2009 10:55:04 AM
Haha Austin would be a long way to go every day for all time!!  But I'll admit it's probably worth it... ;)

I just moved here from Chicago and I have to say I really like Fort Worth.  I actually live in Denton, but my boyfriend is in a band so we're always going to shows in Dallas and Ft. Worth. 

And just so this post isn't TOTALLY off-topic...aren't you guys super psyched to get crafting??  I know I am! :)

I got my stuff for my partners!  Yippee!  I'll be crafting away this weekend while DH is doing "guy stuff."

I have been in touch with my group! Yeah! I am still in the planning phase...which tends to take longer than the actual crafting. I am going to try to get to making some stuff this week.

Yeah! ;D

i got all the supplies yesterday- i hope.
i'm almost done with three of them.
sucks about the needle. i was having needle issues on my machine- i was super glad i had extras, especially since i just got back from the fabric store.

Post by: rowenlynn on June 15, 2009 03:28:07 PM
Agree with PeachesEveryday  - definitely spend as much time planning/stalking a partner as crafting. I plan to go shopping for supplies tomorrow. Working on the weekends always leaves me too tierd to do anything afterwards.

And here, pics of me for my partners. It is surprisingly hard to get a good shot holding the camera in my hand!

I bought ( = read: stashed them to my mom's cart, lol I'm 21) most of my supplies, and I know pretty much what I'm going to craft to my group. The only thing I'm worried about is that because I'm overly excited on some ideas and want to make lots of stuff, so I'm hoping I won't neglect anyone and make them less stuff. :|

I've bought some supplies as well and I don't think it'll be enough!  There are just so many ideas floating around in my head I'm not sure which ones to use.  I'll have to continue researching!

Organizational Note

We have our first sender.  I know – what an overachiever!  :)  When you receive your items, please PM me & the sender, and post pics in the gallery:

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=309177.0

Also, when you send, please PM me.  It takes a lot more work for me to go through the threads instead of just my inbox.  :D

Thanks!

I wouldn't feel bad being done!  If I didn't have another swap I was doing simultaneously, I'd be done!  :D  But I plan on finishing this weekend!  I have things cut out - just need to put together!

Almost done!  At least, I have to be soon, or I'll just keep adding stuff on to them and they'll start to look ridiculous...

...but I won't be able to send out just yet because I have a few other swaps going and I want to get them all out at once (the post office here is INSANE).

If I can get to the store in time ... I have my exam on Saturday (talking, not writing) around 2 o'clock... and it takes 3 hours so it will be 5 o'clock when I'm done, the store closes at 5.30 ... I hope I make it !

I'm done. I made four of the same item, but each one is different. I'm concerned now because my original idea was simple, but as I changed the others, it looks too simple. I hope the person who gets that one can appreciate the simplicity.

Do you have a self service machine up there?  We have one & so does Lewisville & I always use it so I can go in after hours.

Yes - self service.   :D  It kind of looks like an ATM, near where the drop slots are in the post office.  Super easy!  Not all post offices have them, but I'd definitely look for it since I know you're sort of near me.

I received from halfpint today, unfortunately my camera is broken. It might have something to do with my son dropping it yesterday after I told them they need to stop playing with it.

She did end me a brocade blue paisley headband, I love paisley and it contrasts with my hair nicely. She also sent a crocheted flower clippy. It is in neutrals and a touch of blue in the center. It looks soft and fuzzy, I wonder if she handspins yarn. The fibers look so yummy.

It looks like I will be buying a new camera this weekend. It is a good thing I have picked up some over time.

I think there's more anticipation waiting for your partner to receive what you've made then waiting to receive your package.  I sent out on Friday so I'm hoping everything gets to where it's supposed to be soon!

I like to think that Finland has in some way quite fine postal service, as I have never waited for a package to be received more than a week (even from Japan!) I actually knew that Riechan would be first to receive, as Germany usually takes 2-3 days and England 3-4. And why yes, I'm a post addict/freak! xD

It seems that from Belgium, to UK is 2-3 days, Finland 2-3 days, Australia about 8 workdays, US somewhat in between :)

I sent 3 of my packages, but one came back and said that the address didnt exist.  I need the owner to resend me the addresses I am sending to again so I can make sure that the address is right. 

I have received a package today but havent opened it yet.
