In the past few days. I’ve been bitten by the accessory-making bug.
I’ve kind of gone crazy making stuff, and its been really fun! I usually dress pretty simply; mostly regular ribbed tank tops and khaki or jean shorts in the summer, jeans and t-shirts in the winter, with mostly just solid colors, with a few dresses and skirts thrown in the mix. For some reason I’m not much of a print-wearer when it comes to clothing.
I like to keep my style simple and kind of classic/bohemian/beach-bum-ish. That’s my west coast upbringing- super super casual. Living in the south has made me a little more polished, but not too much. For some reason, people dress up a little more here.
I like to embellish my simple style with bangle bracelets,
flats or sandals, dangle-y earrings and sometimes toe rings.
|These are my favorite earrings- a gift from my dear husband for either my birthday or Christmas…I don’t remember which. I love them though!|
Anyway, where I like to put my prints is my accessories. Such as:
|Yep, I carry a tiny little purse. That way, things can’t get lost as easily in there! Although sometimes they still do…|
My friend Kayci showed me how to make these, and I just can’t stop!
I’ve made some to put on headbands that I’ve woven….
|My sweet little Eliana modeling her headband-isn’t she just darling?|
I’m planning to put some on a bag, once I make myself one. 🙂
And in the winter/fall they will look delightful on sweaters and jackets. I think I might know what all of my female family and friends are getting for Christmas! ; )
What are your favorite accessories and why?
For information on how to make the woven headbands, check out Ashley’s blog, Make it, Love it -she explains it way better than I ever could.
I”ll post a tutorial on how to make the fabric flowers soon!
