headbangers


Sorry I meant headbands , I am the headbanger !
A friend who works in a very touristy shop asked me a while ago if I would be interested in making a few things for her shop .
 Being the yes girl I am I said yes .
I didn't think too much about it again until she turned up the other day with all this Aboriginal fabric .
I made a reversable headband to show her to see if it was something she could use .
She loved it and asked when she could have more of them .
How many ?
A hundred or so to start would be good ! What !
So if you don't see me around for a few days I'll be the one banging my head on the wall .


The last photo is a cropped shot of the most beautiful model ever , my daughter .
Almost forgot , I'll be back on Tuesday , probably with a headache , to release my new pattern !
Yay that will mean a giveaway .
Off to find some panadol .

They do look beautiful but boy I am pleased I am not making them.

100 will probably only be the start.

WAAAAAACK!!!... sorry Clare, that's me slapping you across the back of the head with the rolled up newspaper. What were you thinking? Sometimes you have to say NO. Twenty would have been fine, even fifty but 100!! Those headbands are so stinking cute of course she wants MORE.
See you when you come up for air.

Great headbands. I'm sure they'll be a big seller. I love this fabric too. I added an orange spotty fabric and used it in a quilt: http://www.flickr.com/photos/45996544@N05/4614897204/ .

Hi Clare - guess what I have been working on today? Reversible headbands! They are a bit different from yours. And not a 100 thank goodness. I am getting ready for a market later this month.
