Headbands By Bijou...

Quite some time ago I designed 6 different styles of headbands and I finally got around to making the pattern and cutting the felt and finding the beads and buttons and putting it all together for the first 'prototype'...here is the finished headband...


I am going to making 5 or 6 at once very soon and put them up for sale in my Etsy shop, they'll be between $35-$50, because they are all hand-stitched/handmade made with care by me...the other 5 designs I've conjured up are just as cute...

...What do you think?

Mandy - What a great headband - definitely not the headbands of our childhood. Remember those hard plastic things with the sharp teeth? Yours is MUCH better!!!

oh my gosh! i think i love them!! (and you are such a cute model...)

beautiful!!

oh! also i so love your bunnies. i have been working on my hubby to let me and my boys get a lop eared bunny. hasn't happened yet but i don't give up easily!

i grew up with a little white "mutt" bunny named johnny and then when i was in high school i had an angora rabbit named froggy. we named him that because he would get so excited and leap and pounce around like a wild frog :) we had a rottweiler puppy at the time and he would lay on his back and pummel her face with his hind feet (he was bigger than she for quiet some time and had her well "trained" by the time she was full grown). they made quite a pair! the angora rabbit was house trained.

i'll never forget the time we were driving in the car. his litter box was in the far back of the car, under something. he was hopping around looking and looking. i wasn't paying too much attention, until he hopped onto my lap and peed on me! he had been looking for his litter box, couldn't find it so used the next best thing! lol i remember mom being grateful he didn't pee on the car seat :)

What a beautiful headband! I think it's a great idea to put your creations on sale. This is a great opportunity to share your talent to other people and inspire them as well. :)

I can't decide if they headbands are cute, or if they are even cuter on your cute face!
They are wonderful girlfriend. You sure have been busy lately. I love all your creativity!
