I may be moving to http://www.luckyyouaccessories.com/

I will ease into it. It is still new to me. I will still be posting here until I get used to the other  “house”. Do you guys like the idea of moving? Is it easier to just type in “lucky you accessories” ?

What do you guys think?

Experimented with tulle and lace. I hope you guys like it.

$2.50 headband

This was actually suggested by a friend. I can’t believe I didn’t even think of putting it on a headband because there are those of us that can not wear hairbands/elastic headbands.

$2.50 headband

This is really fun to wear and look at.

It’s soooo fluffy. Every time I try it on, I have to pet it.

Ending it with this tulle puff phone accessory. Is it a circle? Is it a bow? It’s a puff of cute-ness! HAHAHA. It’s really light too! Again, if I had this on my phone, I would probably pet it also! It’s so FLUFFY!

Seriously. I need to put things in their packaging because if they are not and they are lying around, I will easily pick one up and wear it!

I stamp and write on each packaging. So if you ever end up buying something that needs to be personalized, like adding a name  or anything, I can do that for you.

These aren’t “new” items that I made today but I just wanted to show you how things are prepped before they are sent to you.

 

Yes, I actually sit down and cut up paper and then stamp them. If you ever need a name or even a saying stamped on the cardboard paper, don’t hesitate to tell me. I also have stamps that says Happy Birthday, Thank you, etc. I will probably make an entry later of the stamps that I have. If you are Korean, I also have Korean stamps for you to personalize your package–just throwing that out there.

Lame title. I like stripes, plaids, patterns, plain colors, and my mom + aunt always tell me that I choose colors that fit an older person’s sense of style/taste.. It doesn’t mean the stuff I like are drab! I hope not. Though I have to admit, my choices are sometimes questionable.

Here you can see how the front and back of each accessory looks like. I did a variety of different hair clips and sizes.

I couldn’t resist making a small cell phone accessory. Very light!

Not what I had in mind. Based it on a friend’s request but it didn’t turn out exactly how I imagined it in my head. >.< I still like it. It has pale pink, cream, and light brown color in it.

How cute is this pattern? From far away, they look like little white polka dots. Hence, the Minnie Mouse reference. But when you actually look closer the little “polka dots” are actually little white hearts!!

$1.99 each of buy any two for $3.00

There are two bows. The left one is an alli(gator) clip one and the right one is a 60MM clasp clip.

These are great for wearing in your hair or clipping it on a necklace to make a bow tie necklace.

Tee hee. My roommate bought some Halloween fabric for me to make some bows for her. The prints are large and it was hard to incorporate the images on the bows. In order to show the image, I had to make the bows really big. I don’t think she has a hair bow that big. I bet she was disappointed by the way they turned out but she was nice about it. We took it as a lesson. ^^;

Came back on campus and felt an urge to make something with new materials I bought over the weekend.

 

$2.50 per headband

 

Made three headbands. All of which have velvet ribbon on the inside to make it nonslip + softttt.

 

$2.50 headband

 

Because there is velvet ribbon on the inside, it is sooo comfortable.

I really like this headband. It’s colorful and can be worn with any outfit.

I was trying to make a hair bow out but it turned out too small, so I made it into a cell phone accessory. Urgh. It took forever to make it because it was so small.

The front of first failed attempt of bow tie earring.

It is now placed on my bookbag like a pin. Again, who says you need to actually WEAR your earrings on your ears….hahahaha.

Went around a few stores/boutiques to see if they would be interested in carrying handmade hair accessories. One place was very open to it. It’s a place I’ve been interested to pitch a long time ago but I finally gathered enough courage to ask/talk to them. An update of it should be up later!

A quick shout out to my friend, Amy. Thanks for going with me while I was pitching my clips to stores. Thank you for the moral support. Thanks for supporting me in general.

In the mean time, I have new clips for you!

Awesome roommate sporting my clips.

 

Props to my roommate for allowing me to take pictures of her. These alligator clips seem to be great for any length of hair. I’m actually wearing one right now.

>.< I didn’t get a chance to package all of them right away and that is why I got tempted into wearing one of the clips this morning.

Sigh.

I bet you can tell that I like to use things in more than one way.  With that said, there is more that meets the eye when it comes to hair clips.

Traditional usage.

You don’t just have to wear them in your hair!

Bow Necklace.

If you have the hair clips that have clasps (snaps) you can clip it on a necklace and voila! You have one of those snazzy bow necklaces.

Shirt detailing.

Need to shorten the strap of a tank top? Fold the strap to the length you want and then clip it with your hair clip. It secures your top as well as gives it a little oomph with the bow.

Clip it at the bottom of you shirt!

Wear your bow from your head to your…

Personalize your phone strap.

Don’t want to wear it in your hair? Don’t know where to put it? Clip on to your cell phone strap, purse strap, book bag, whatever you have and you’ve just decorated/personalized your plain item.

Clip on to your bag!

You know you have one of those handmade beanies you made or your grandmother made that you don’t wear because it is super plain. Add a bow on it by clipping you hair accessory on it! You can have one basic beanie and numerous hair accessories! This way you can change the color of you bow according to your outfit!

Clip on your scarf!

I couldn’t find my beanie. That lace bow thing is actually a hair clip! (Wow, what is going on with my hair.)

Big hair accessories are great.

The possibilities are endless!

Like the accessories you see here? You can buy my hair clips by emailing me which ones you are interested in.

I was in the craft store yesterday and I wanted to try out how these alligator clips would work. They are surprisingly good. They don’t fall out or anything. I still like my normal barrette hair clips(that has the clasps). But these are great for when you are on the move and you just want to clip it in your hair real fast.

You can also clip it on your clothes!

$1.99 each or buy any two hair clips for $3.00

Even though the black double bows are the “same,” each one is slightly different from one another.

No, I didn’t just take pictures of the same clip. The sizes are slightly different For comparison, please refer to the first picture because they are placed in according to size and these photos are taken in that order. I will have measurements up later.

I really like this. My roommate said it just looks like satin(which it is) but the texture is a bit grainy(?) and it reminds me of how denim looks. The profile of the double bow clip reminds me of a butterfly. Doesn’t the middle picture look like a butterfly?

These are the bendable ones! These are on the alligator clips though.

You’re not experiencing deja-vu. These are similar to the clips I made the other day except for little details plus the alligator clip.

My hands were itching late last night to make hair bow clips. Brought out the vintage fabrics I bought during the summer when my mom and I went to a thrift store to look at bookshelves. I washed them and cut them up according to their patterns.

Bendable hair bows!

The bendable bows with a bobby creeping up on them. You can use a bobby pin or a pen to poof up the bows!

Below is a video I shot to explain how to change the shape of the bendable bows how you want them. I lowered the volume because when I was editing them, the audio was really loud and startled me. It is at a weird angle because the camera was on a makeshift stand. I couldn’t find my tripod. >.<

What am I trying to do?

I am trying to share handcrafted items. I've always had a thing for hair accessories from HotTopic, Urban Outfitters, and many other places but it gets really expensive. This is why I began to make my own. That's why my prices are low. I just want to call it even in terms of material costs and postage cost.

I don't want my prices to be around $8 because that would defeat the purpose of my projects. Plus, these accessories are handcrafted, not mass produced. Each and every one of them are made out of love. I usually make them when I feel inspired or in the mood make things. I've tried to force myself to make things and they never turn out right. >.<

How do you order them?
Email/comment and I confirm your order and send you an invoice. I will be using paypal for all transaction.

My paypal email is:
neihhien@hotmail.com

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Leave a comment! I'd appreciate it.
