I got really fed up of trying to keep my daughter’s long hair out of her food, made especially difficult because she is fussy about what kind of clip and/or hairdo you put in her hair. It must be just so. Phase 1 – we go for a haircut. She loved it, the beauty salon is her castle and she sat STILL for the entire haircut. The hairdresser was bewildered and impressed. Phase 2 – a headband. But not just any headband of course, it must be pink and have a certain je ne sais quoi that sparkles.
The finished product.
I found the side exactly opposite the join in the headband and sewed on 4 rows of beads. You could make a star or flower pattern, or cover more surface area with beads, use a bunch of different colours, etc. The crucial effect is that it blings.
