Hair ribbons! I don’t have a daughter to dress up, so I have been making these cute little hair bows to sell at the flea market in a few weeks. (Why are all the cute crafts for girls?) It may seem early to be working on Christmas crafts, but the selling season starts in a little over a week. The hair ribbons are cute (although it killed me to buy pink ribbon – ick! blue would be much cuter) and if I have any leftover my adorable niece will be able to use them. Plus, I love any excuse to heat up the soldering iron and melt something. 🙂
I also have purses, kids aprons, baby bibs, personalized baubles, jewelry, and beaded ornaments in various stages of completion for the flea market, and my indiemade shop. As you can see, I am probably the world’s messiest crafter. I have all of my supplies pulled out of the closet and set out on the kitchen table – I have about a 10″ square cleared off to work in, and the rest of the table is covered! I am working on a photo tutorial to make felt hair clippies, but it will have to wait until next week, when I am a bit more organized.
