A Feather Pretty is in My Hair + Tutorial


Sometimes I feel like a complete troll. I see some of the sweetest things on etsy and in my ultra cheapness I decide not to buy it but make it myself, and write a tutorial about it.

I’ve seen some stinking awesome feather headbands lurking around etsy, and I’ve made my own clippies with feathers on them, but the black-feather clippies didn’t really work in my short, dark hair. So I’m very excited to tell you that I’ve assembled a headband complete with feathers and fabric flower that doesn’t just blend in.

    1. melissa, melissa… if only I could make things half as pretty as the things you create. You’re very inspiring. Maybe you should have some classes in Salt Lake when I get home… :) Sewing… paper crafts… I bet a lot of people would sign up.

      So pretty…I’m going to start giving you lists of things I see and THINK I can make myself but never do. :)

    5. You’re welcome for the “link love.” :) I stumbled across your blog and I think it’s great! You have some wonderful designs and I love all of your sewing projects!! It makes me want to start back up! Funny thing I also noticed is that your Etsy is Melissapher . . . my name is Melissa and my husband is Chris and he used to call me Melissapher anytime I would use his full name (Christopher)!
