Handmade hair things

This week I managed to do some crafting and made two different two-way clips! I'm quite happy with how they both turned out ^__^


On Wednesday I had quite a nasty fever, so I stayed home from work. Mostly I played computer games and read, but I was feeling a bit better in the evening so I decided to experiment with making a new style of hair accessory, inspired by some Innocent World ones I've seen with a spray of lace under a bow or flowers. I wanted to do both a both and flowers over the lace, but didn't have any appropriate ribbon so it ended up quite simple with just flowers and lace. I made it in ivory to further plug that accessory lack I noticed.


Then today I decided to try yet another new thing - attaching flowers and things to a felt base which is in turn attached to the two-way clip base. And it turned out wonderfully! It's a bit more OTT than I intended, but given that I just kind of made it rather than going in with a plan I love it. And besides, every girl needs something a bit dramatic for special occasions, right?


I had so much fun making these that I'm definitely going to make more in the future! Possibly the very, very near future...

    1. Thank you! I hadn't actually thought how I could use them outside of lolita but how you've got me thinking...

  2. I would love some circular head dresses! It's next in my line of volumous headwear.
    Great job on the accessories.

    1. Totally get/make one! I like mine a surprising amount considering that it's more OTT than I usually go - it's not something I'd have bought but it is something I like having.
