Flowers In Your Hair

I made a bunch of flowers at one point last year, intending to use them in headbands. Considering the giant plastic bag of them in the yarn basket, I never got beyond the first step.

The good news is that I had a ton of coordinating ones on hand when I decided to make barrettes.

The actual barrette (space for hair) is 2 inches, while the edge-to-edge measurements of the flower part is 4 inches long by 2.5 inches wide and measures about half an inch thick. There are two blue flowers side-by-side with the purple flower on top. I attached the flowers by wrapping purple embroidery floss around the flat edge of the barrette and sewing the flowers on with it.

In Progress: Bottle Cap Necklaces

I recently got some painted bottle caps to use for making necklaces, bracelets, or pins. I’ve been working on some images to go inside of them.

Unfortunately, the colors became strange when I uploaded the pictures to WordPress. Imagine the purple spots as more magenta colored.

I’m hoping to also use these images as patterns for silk-screening soon, and the necklaces with these should be finished by next week.
