1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / fabric flowers & baby headbands! (pic heavy) on: December 31, 2013 12:55:36 AM
i've always been into making hair flowers, for years now, and my technique seems to have improved over the years. i thought it would be neat to show the progress Tongue

edit: put this one up here as well so it will be the thumbnail, hopefully!

in the beginning (a flower and a bow):

a few years later:

and after that (you can see the improvement already):

**still one of my favs**

the problem is, the hair flowers were becoming HUGE and heavy, as i was gluing them instead of sewing them...

and most recently (mostly handsewn with minimal amounts of glue, meaning they are lightweight!):

and some baby headbands i've started making:

thanks for looking!  Kiss

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / So many hair flowers! *pic heavy* on: March 22, 2013 12:05:39 AM
HELLLOOOOOO Craftster world. I've missed you Smiley

Hopefully I don't get in trouble for posting these on their card backings but I promise I'm not advertising them. They're just for my craft shows, I don't really sell things online.

Anyway, I just got into making hair flowers recently... I used to just go to the dollar store, rip apart fake flowers, and glue them back together with something in the middle... however, I now make them completely from fabric, and put all the pieces together. Smiley I love mixing layers with different fabrics, too fun.

Sorry about the awful photos, they're from my cell phone!

Hope you enjoy Smiley

here are my first ever headbands!

and a hair bow / clip on bowtie Smiley

Hey everyone, so I have been seeing all these hooplas on here, and I totally created one for a swap I was doing...... however, I can't post that one, until my partner receives it.

I'm super new to embroidery, this is the third ever embroidery project i've done.... lol. I've dabbled in cross stitch before, but kinda gave on it, it just wasn't for me. But I'm LOVING embroidery. I have such a fabric obsession.

So without further ado, here it is:
