Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy....Rainbow Fishy

A couple of weeks ago, a client sent me a picture of a headband she's in love with.  I decided I wanted to try my hand at making my own.  Here's the original
I'm not sure where the image is from.  I did some searching online but couldn't find it anywhere.  I just don't want to take credit for the design as it's not my own.

This is what my versions look like:
This is the big version.  I love the colors in this one.  It's kind of big on Miss R, but on an older girl I think it would be perfect.
The smaller version.  Still super cute!!!  My Mom suggested giving the headband, along with the "Rainbow Fish" book, as a gift to little girls and I love that idea.  Here's some pictures of the headbands without my super adorable model.


I think I'll be making more of these very soon.  Probably a whole school of them!  (ha ha, I crack myself up)

Getting Back to Headbands

It has been waaaay too long since I posted anything about headbands!!!  I've been really busy trying to get some stuff into my Etsy shop and building my Facebook page beyond my circle of friends.  What's really cool is that my work schedule changed to 3 nights a week instead of 4, so I have an entire extra day to work on things like that.  (Well, when Miss R is napping anyway.)  

Since I've been really into crocheting lately, I decided to do some crochet headbands.
I've actually made these in several colors and sizes now.  It's really fun mixing and matching the headbands, flowers, and beads.
I did this one in a newborn size as a special request from a close friend.  It turned out beautifully.  
Even My Neighbor Totoro has made an appearance in my headbands.
And then of course, my turquoise hedgehog.  
And this gorgeous piece....
My little one loves modeling the headbands.
She gets really upset when it's time to take them off.
She wasn't happy about taking the headband off!!  Isn't it cute on her?  

Next time I'll show you guys some of the custom work I've been doing.  I'm pretty proud of the pieces I've put together!
