Made by You Mondays

Made by request:

Recently I had a request to make a couple of hummingbird headbands & I thought I'd share them with you. The second one was a request for a hippie style headband, in a greyish color, with a hummingbird (like the golden yellow 'hummingbird love' headband below) & an embroidered heart in pink & red (made like the one on the 'dragon love' blue headband), that was to be a bit thinner in width. Since it was hippie style I made it so that it ties in the back, rather than with the elastic that is normally used, just to add a bit of 'authenticity' to the style & since it ties, it turned out to be very adjustable in size. I edged it with more pink stitching, that goes great with the grey.

All headbands are hand crocheted, hand embroidered & the stamping is done on remnants of fabric left over from remaking a vintage shirt. It's fun creating them & I like the idea of being able to customize the designs, so much that I'll be adding a custom listing where you can request different color & design components for your very own samsstuff headband. What kind of combo would you choose (You can see more colors & style choices in samsstuff on Etsy)?
