Last night I had a crazy urge to make my school color headbands. As UGA bulldogs/bulldawgs we bleed red and black. I hope you like them.

There is an extra feature on these headbands. On the underside of the metal headband, I added velvet ribbon for those that have problems with the headbands slipping off their heads. Testing how well the velvet ribbon works for non-slip purposes.

I made two red and black headbands. One with a black base and one with a red base. They are slightly different.

The other night my roommate asked me if I can make her a bow with some material she has and here it is:

Roommate's headband.

It looks so kick ass on her! She can really pull it off. Props to her design. I hope it was what she imagined. After I made it she asked me how she could pay for it, I asked for some of her orange plaid fabric. Such win!!

Took some time out the other day to put all accessories in plastic packaging. This not only make it quicker to ship things out but it also helps me from grabbing one while I am in a rush to get out the apartment and my hair is in a mess. A great way to hide the mess is to distract people with hair accessories!

Keep scrolling down, you’ll get to see headbands available at this point.

Accessories are ready to go!

A lot of headbands to choose from!

Don’t get me wrong. There are a lot of things at Urban Outfitters that I love but the price tags for some of their accessories can be ridiculous.

I got my hands on some really interesting materials that I wanted to test out. These are the headbands I handcrafted that night. I hope you like them.

After I finished making two items for my friend’s order, I made a mini batch of hair accessories. I am running low on the headbands so I could only make one.

$2.50 for the headband. $1.99 each for the hair bows clips. When you buy a pair of hair clips you can get them for $3.00.

The left has the automatic flash on and the right doesn’t. Hopefully this gives you a better idea of how it would look in person.

$2.50 headband.

I really like how this headband turned out. The solid color makes in simple but the detailing makes it standout. Don’t worry that isn’t leather. Totally vegan/vegetarian friendly.

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

The special thing about the plaid bows is that they have wire in them so you can actually bend and form the bow in any way you want. This is great when you want the bow to stand out more in your hair or if you want a kind of casual, crinkly bow look.  These bows are approximately 3-4 inches wide.

Aug 26 batch: $2.50 for headbands; $1.99 per hair clip or buy a pair(2clips) for $3.00

Cute bows. $1.99 each or buy a pair of any hair clip for $3.00

Here you can see what the actual clip looks like. Sturdy, right?

$1.99 per hair clip or buy a pair of them (any 2) for $3.00.

I was in the store and I really liked the pattern of the fabric. I wasn’t sure if it would work for bow but I like the feel of it. It’s actually a floral pattern but it kind of looks tie-dyed.

$1.99 per hair clip or buy a pair of them (any 2) for $3.00.

I feel like the polka dot print is adorable. It will probably work with any outfit.

$2.50 per headband.

This one is actually sold but I can always whip one up for you. I usually make two every time so that you can choose between the two. Or if you don’t mind and you want the accessory asap, I will just make it and send it to you right away. It’s just each item is handcrafted and it may look slightly different.

I got a chance to do some material shopping randomly throughout this week and last week. I bought some lace to experiment with. Yesterday I got some really quirky, awesome buttons!

La*Petite Spool buttons! Made in France. Sooo adorable.

I couldn’t resist the blue cars. I thought the anchors were just really cool.

This set was just too cute to not buy. Which came first?

Stay tuned for the barrettes I made with these buttons. Plus, I have new hair accessories made out of the lace I bought!

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!
