this blog is essentially an online diary of my little creative projects - if you can't fix it, throw some glitter over it and add a lacy edge and everything will be alright.

my first commission - minnie and mickey mouse ear headbands

a friend text me with a request (how cool is that?!) two headbands, one minnie and mickey mouse for him and his girlfriend. felt and glittery were my instructions, apparently topshop have made them cool and were sold out. here's what i came up with:

i used: cardboard, two headbands, two sheets of black glittery felt, red polka dot fabric, scissors, and my trusty glue gun.

step 1: draw around a handy little round dish thing (larger than a mug, smaller than a side plate) onto cardboard-box cardboard 4 times.
step 2: cut out.
step 3: place headband on top of one of these circles, draw along the curve of the band, cut, repeat on each circle.
step 4: glue gun these to the hair bands.
step 5: cover with the felt - securing with glue gun.
step 6: make a blow from the fabric and glue gun this to the middle of one of the headbands.
step 7: admire, then swap them for money : )
