Beyond the first three designs I created (one of which I didn't replicate because Abigail deserves a one-of-a-kind) I have been focusing at letting myself create on a whim. Each headband has been hand cut, sewn and adorned. I love each piece, and have not added it to the "sell bin" until I was absolutely in love with it. I try each design on Abby before it goes in the bin too- to see how it fits, sits and photographs. Here's a sneak peek of what I've been working on since my last post about the fair:
This headband is a part of a mommy and me set. The mommy headband has a simpler , but matching adornment. I think I might make a few more of these before tomorrow's show!
I've loved experimenting with shapes, colours, styles and textures. Creating these headbands has been such a labour of love. I really enjoy doing it while watching a show before bed. Some nights I crank out five before I remember I have to go to work early the next morning and force myself to go to bed. I'm thinking of opening an etsy shop to keep myself motivate. Maybe even do commissions and special orders. What do you guys think?
