original artwork thursday

No sketching this week, I had crochet on the brain. I have been trying to come up with a headband pattern to sell at Myrtle's , and I think I have succeeded. So far I have only sold hats up there, and of course that means summer sales are nonexistent. As you can see I have created removable accessories
And I got to set snaps! This was such a fun project, inspired by Maybe Matilda's knotted headband tutorial. I did add the idea of snaps and removable accessories with the option to twist or knot as you see fit. I will be adding another set of snaps on the headbands so that they will fit kids or adults. And I made it a bit smaller in the width.
Wear 2 at a time!
Wear a huge flower on your noggin!
This green one is the headband we performed rigorous testing on. Snaps were new to me, so we pulled on it and snapped/unsnapped this one a whole bunch. Plus I wanted to see if it would stretch out so we pulled on either end and swung it around the room. It held up pretty well, SO this headband is mine now.

These are nice! I like the colourful flower!

By the way, as I am now lurking around here on a daily basis anyway, I thought I might just go and properly follow your blog. I hope you don't object.
