Headbands and the "Jester" Skirt

This is what I've been up to for the past few months. Headbands. Lots of headbands.
T-Shirt Headbands
In different colors and styles, with different patterns and stitching.
Headbands for Thorp
Even rainbows.  All handmade by me.  I started making them over a year ago to restrain my wonderful curly hair.  (It has a mind of it's own so restraint is necessary and thus the headbands.)

Seems like I'm stopped every time I'm wearing one and asked "Where did you get your headband?"

So now I'm starting to sell them.  Taking it seriously.   Getting all the ducks in a row as they say.  Including the "Etsy" shop which was last years resolution.   Ducks.  Rows.  Headbands.

I did take sometime out from headband making to reorganize my work space and thus with a burst of renewed "CREATIVE ENERGY"  I made a new skirt for Ruby.   I call it the "Jester" Skirt.   I now want one for myself.   I made it using all the scrap pieces from my headband pattern cutouts.

I've been setting aside these wacky triangle pieces just waiting for the right project to come to me.  I have a hard time "throwing away" anything that just might still be useful.  So I wait.  This can often backfire in mounds or piles of stuff in which I loose the land line phone for 5 days.

Anyway, I'm down right giddy, tickled pink and thrilled with the result.  So much so that I made Ruby's new doll, Crystal, a matching one while Ruby was at school. 
Smiles all around!
