The apron is done. The AB bag has been shelved. It just wasn’t coming together the way I saw it in my mind. The brown corduroy top panel was too casual and the beads too small. It needs something more dressy, more fancy. A good excuse to head to my local bead and fabric stores, right?
So I decided to make some more hairsticks instead. I really like how these turned out. I hope someone else does, too! I’d planned to list these at Etsy, but wanted to give them a tour of Retro Femme first.
Tomorrow we’ll be doing a big house-cleaning before my dad & his wife come on Saturday. Sewing wise, I’ll be finishing up my friend’s jumpers. I know she will be so happy to get them at church on Sunday.
I have really long hair…it is around hip length, and since I’m nearly six feet tall, that’s a lot of hair. I wear my hair up during the day and I prefer to use a hairstick to anchor my twist or bun. I can almost always get the entire length wrapped up and secured with a single hairstick in about ten seconds. I don’t wear much jewerly, so I think of my hairsticks the way some women think about earrings. I want them to compliment my clothing and general style.
The problem is most hairsticks are either very plain or very fancy. Nothing wrong with that! It’s just that most days I want something in the middle: pretty, elegant, simple, classy. So I made some and I’m thinking of listing them in my Etsy store.
What do you think????? Please leave a comment. 🙂
