NEW: Vintage style hair accessories and Perth Upmarket

Well I've been busy lately experimenting with new designs for summer. I've been wearing more hair accessories myself lately, now that my hair is getting quite long. (I've changed my hair colour recently too, now it's a light golden brown instead of blonde).I find these bow hair slides and headbands are just the right amount of girlie with that vintage look that I like.
These will be available at my stall at the pop-up Perth Upmarket at the Subi Street Festival next Thursday night, 1 Dec. Hair slides $11, Headbands $22.

For you crocheters out there, here are some crochet headband tips:
- use wool! It's stretchy.
- as a rule of thumb to get just the right length, stretch the headband round your head. When the ends touch at almost full stretch, the length is about right. You don't want a headband that is too loose.
- decorate with bows, flowers, buttons.

Bye for now,
x Mel.

Leeloo Design Online

Back in September the wonderful Leeloo made a call for submissions for designers interested in supplying their designs to be sold in their successful online store. I applied and was excited to find out that I was of 8 new designers accepted! So at the moment Leeloo stocks my hand made bow brooches and bow necklaces.

 Here are 3 of my favourite items from some of the other new Leeloo designers. Are they gorgeous?
