Baby Headdresses

two layered headdresses

Today and yesterday the wind outside has been strong and quite cold ... time for staying indoors, watching films and making little headdresses!! if you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll know that I have a headdress obsession. I have been attempting to make one for AGES, but something has always gone a little bit wrong. Finally, I've cracked it!

These two are made from velvet & satin ribbons, rhinestones and feathers. I like them layered up, actually. I'd like to make more, in different tones, and layer them in ascending order, like pale blue, royal blue and violet. That might have to wait until after my assessment, however. After graduation.

In two days I go back to Canberra and it's head down, bum up until December. The thought kind of makes me want to cry. Because really, I just want to fly kites, make cakes, wear headdresses and feel this relaxed all day, every day, forever.

those are incredible! i've always wanted a full length feather indian head dress straight out of peter pan, but these are a more wearable version :)
