Roses, sunflowers, poppies and daisies!
I originally got into the idea of selling my crochet projects when I started
making hair clips for myself. I'd wear them out (either casually...spring or summer
and more formally in the fall and winter... for specific events) and I would
have so many people asking where I got them from. I'd reply that I made
them; everyone kept telling me to sell them. It wasn't until I ran into a
friend of mine, who, at the time had a little 2 year old daughter who was
wearing almost the exact flower hair clip that I would make. I asked my
friend where she picked that up and was told that she got it from
Clair's. I was stunned and really toyed around with the idea of selling
but had no idea how to get started and get my product out there. There
are so many people selling hair clips, it was very overwhelming.
I love making flower hair clips because I can customise the type of
flower, their colour and size and embellishments (if any), and style.
I love how something so small can enhance a hairstyle so
dramatically! I also love how I can quickly crochet one up if I feel like
wearing one. I love the tiny ones with the glass bead in the centre, a few of those on a formal hair-do elevates the elegance just that little bit more!
I have given many away to friends and family so my stash is
a little low. It has been a while since I've made them, I should make
some more, soon!
These flowers also make great accessories for scrapbooking, card making and gift toppers!
