Hair Candy

After my stealthily secret post about the pot holders I made for a certain someone who watched Aubrey (it was Sara, Amy's daughter:)), I knew that I'd wait to post about this headband until after it was given. It's too hard to try and be secretive and believe me, being secretive, is not one of my gifts. Let me tell you, it's hard to have that gift when you happen to be a person who's emotions are all over your face for the world to see, at any given moment.......although I guess you can't see my face, hmmm didn't think that one through...


Mooooving on....
The headband was for Amy's other daughter, Emily, who watched Aubrey as well.

A couple of rosettes, a few covered buttons, felt for the backing and some stretchy-lace-elastic-stuff (yup, you guessed it--the technical term) and I was set.
These were the attempts to take pictures of it on my head. ummmm I'm not so handy with the self portrait.... but you do get a nice close-up of my camera lens. You're welcome.
At least I got the actual headband in focus this time...
hmmmm there I am. And look at me go--contorting myself to get a decent shot in the kitchen because it was a rainy day and it was the only room with enough light...good times.
Ahhh, a much better model:)
There was some serious bribing that happened to make her sit still long enough to do this...
But SO worth it, look at her! Oh and the headband ended up being pretty cute too ;)
I'm loving this stretchy-lace-elastic-stuff! So great for headbands and I also used it on my laptop/dvd cases
Best of all, I had all the stuff to make it on hand ....not to mention the cutest little model around!
