Bow Headband OR Simply Bowtie

by Claudia of Espejos Bellos

After seeing so many awesome bowties, bows and headbands, I had to give it a try. I made this tonight and I love it. It is soft, comfy & adorable.


Here’s my quick little crochet pattern to make the headband I made OR you could simply make the bow and use it as a bowtie! :)

Needed:

  • Some yarn in a color of your choosing (I chose a grey wool)
  • A hook size for a medium size stitch (I used a size I for wool, if using acrylic you may be best off with a H size)
  • A craft needle to weave in ends
  • Scissors

To make the headband:

Chain 100. Check if this will tie behind your head. If not, add more chains. Double crochet all the way down your chain. Leave a long enough tail to weave in. Cut off the tail and weave it in with your yarn needle.

To make the bow:

Chain 15. Double crochet all the way down. Turn. Repeat for 3 more rows. 4 Rows total. Leave a long enough tail to weave in. Cut the tail, knot off, weave in with yarn needle.

Easy peasy. But we are NOT done! At this point you will have a small square.

With your fingers squish the middle of the square. Ah, you see where we are going now right?

Take yarn and wrap it around the middle 4-5 times OR more if you like a fat middle like mine.

Don’t cut off or knot off just yet! Take your headband and see where you would like your bow, I wanted mine slightly off center. Take your bow and wrap that yarn around the headband as well a few times. Then cut off, leaving the tail ends long enough to weave in. Knot off and weave in with your yarn needle.

DONE!

(If you only wanted a bowtie, simply leave off the step of wrapping the yarn around the headband. Once your center of your bow is as thick as you want it, cut off, knot/tie off and weave in the ends with your yarn needle.)

Our etsy is up! Here is an example of what you can find there! Click through for source.

Guys, I’m signal boosting this again. Our etsy hasn’t sold anything, and while I realize these are expensive pieces, they’re also really beautiful. If you could at least signal boost this, that’d be wonderful. Anything sold will go into our fund for eventually getting a house/goats.

this really is so super beautiful! pretty sure it’s one of a kind too. and pretty jealous of whoever snatches it up.

DIY Herbal Shampoo

herbalhealing:

This is an all-natural, chemical-free alternative that cleans your hair, but doesn’t strip it of its natural oils like most shampoos.  All of the ingredients can be founds in natural foods stores.  If your hair is exceptionally oily, you might want to replace the jojoba oil with rosemary essential oil.

  • 8 ounces distilled water
  • 1 ounce herbs (choose from combinations below)
  • 3 ounces liquid castile soap
  • 1/4 teaspoon jojoba oil
  • 25 drops pure essential oil (choose from this list)

1.) Bring the water to a boil.  Add the herbs, cover, and let simmer over low heat for 15-20 minutes.  Strain and cool.

2.) Slowly add the castile soap to the tea, then mix in the jojoba oil and essential oil.  Store in a plastic container with a flip-top lid and shake well before using!

Goldie Locks Infusion: For golden highlights, combine 2 parts chamomile, 1 part calendula, 1 part comfrey leaf.

Dark of the Nigh Infusion: To effect dark highlights, try using 2 parts sage leaf, 1 part black walnut hull (chopped), and 1 part comfrey leaf.

Desert Bloom Infusion: This is an excellent formula for dry hair. 1 part calendula flower, 1 part marshmallow root, 1 part nettle leaf.

Rapunzel’s Locks Infusion: Bothered by oily hair?  Use this astringent recipe. 1  part rosemary leaf, 1 part witch hazel bark (not extract), 1 part yarrow leaf and flower.

Anonymous asked: I have several bland pairs of flats, collecting ideas for jazzing them up. Go!

espejosbellos:

sequin-stuffed:

YES! FUN! 

Okay, I’ll start with the most obvious one that you’ve probably seen everywhere (but I still want to list it!): 

  • Glitter Flats!

I’ve been meaning to do this for months. I used to never think I’d want glittery shoes (which honestly sounds crazy to me now) but I’ve done a complete 180 on that idea.

We Are Not Martha has a really great tutorial on how to make these!

  • I also really like the idea of adding a big bow to the front of your glittery shoes, like these:

Okay, moving on. 

  • Fabric + Mod Podge = easy shoe jazz-up

this tutorial is from Notes from the Bench.

I like the idea of using different strips of fabric as well.

  • Ok, I love this next idea. I’m not sure if you’ve seen it, or if you’re into the idea BUT..

comic book flats!

You could really do this with any kind of paper, not just comic books. I saw one person use sheet music to cover their shoes! You could probably do pages of books too? If you were okay with ripping a book apart.

(via cut out & keep)

  • Oh, and last but not least, I think studs would be a pretty neat idea. Kinda like these from Sweet Monday:

I hope these ideas helped! Feel free to submit any of your finished products, cos I’d love to show ‘em off to everyone! ^-^

Thanks to sequin-stuffed for making this re-bloggable! Love these.

All right. I have an idea. It might not work but please reblog this for a signal boost.

Does anyone have any extra knitting needles? I only have size 8 circular, 8 double point, 5 circular, 10 circular, 9 circular. And I desperately need some 6 double point, 13 circular, and 15 circular to do any of the projects I want and have planned.

So I want to know if anyone has extra knitting needles and wants to do a trade. I have a lot of yarn stashed, both handspun and hand-dyed, in amounts from 2 oz to 4 oz. I also have earrings I could trade. However, my handspun is worth like 30 dollars a skein at least (sorry, made from a local sustainable farm’s hand-dyed roving handspun, you know how that kind of thing goes if you’re a crafter). I also have various bits of fiber. I have roving, some plant dyed fiber, so many things. I have literally somewhere around 5 lbs of fiber I need to process and at least 400 dollars worth of yarn. I also have a bunch of stitchmarkers I’ve made I’ll throw in. Just tell me what you’re interested in because I really want to do these projects.

So, if anyone has any spare sets of needles not in the sizes I mentioned, do they want to do a trade?

Reblogging again. I also need size 7 and 6 circular. Someone is trading me for the size 6 dpn.

I’m trading about 2 oz for a pair of needles, if you want handspun.
