For some reason I am having some technical problems and bloggers is not letting me download certain pictures I want to use for "Favorite Creations Tuesday". So, I will keep working on it and hopefully will be able to post them up tomorrow or Thursday. We shall see what I can do. In the mean time here is something I have been working on over the weekend.
A good friend of my cousin (whom I know pretty well too) asked if I would help her make some hair pieces for her daughters that are in a wedding this upcoming weekend.. She had a headband she already had and wanted to make a similar hair piece out of the fabric from their dresses. She didn't want it as a headband since she knew her daughter would just pull it out 10 minutes into the event.
This was the original headband. Isn't is darling? Oh how I love it. Seriously. I could tell what they had done to make it, but, I worried I could actually pull it off.
Well, my worries were confirmed. The fabric that I was using was different from the original headband. A little harder to work with and did not want to lay the same way the other fabrics would. So, I found some similar black fabric I already had and started playing around. Here is what I have finally come up with. (This picture is the actual fabric.) Although, I think I am going to try one more time to get it a little less puffy. We shall see.
Then for her younger daughter...that pretty much has very little hair...she wanted something similar, but small. This is what I cam up with. I am going to make it a little smaller and maybe a little less puffy as well. We shall see how the final products come out. I hope good. It is always fun exploring new hair accessories.
