Photographing small girls is waaay harder than you think on account of the fact that they just don't stay still. Ever. Even with bribes of marshmallows. Hence I have no photo of the Alice type band. I will keep trying though as I am very proud of anything I manage to achieve on my sewing machine as it always feels like a triumph of luck over adversity when I manage to make something half decent a I am never totally sure what I am doing!
I have more ribbon ready to sew up a few more (for Miss E and her friends) and if they are popular I am hoping to list a few for sale as there don't seem to be many UK sellers of girly hair things and with postage so added on it makes US ones become quite expensive. I listed some of the heart crochet bobbles already in time for Valentines day but haven't got round to doing any more colours yet as I have been busy with the bunny and berry hats.
Whilst looking into all things ribbon and button related I finally got round to checking out our local "new" sewing shop. (I say new but was embarrassed to find when I finally went in that they had been open for a whole year!) I was really impressed (and so was Miss E who demanded to be released from the buggy to go and browse the button collection) to find lots of gorgeous ribbon much cheaper than I had been paying online (the dreaded postage costs again!) and some really cute buttons. I have promised Miss E her very own button box so on Monday before ballet when her brother is at the childminders we will go in and choose a few together to start her collection off!
