Let's discuss hairware for baby girls, shall we?
Sorry for the disturbing image. No, of course I'm not referring to the child, she's just lovely. I'm talking about the 12 pound hair bow perched upon the poor kid's head.
And then we have this one. Oh my heavens, this one may actually be giving me hives. Please note that they couldn't find a real live child with a head large enough or a neck strong enough to be the model.
There are endless examples. I could devote an entire blog to it. My google search for "homemade baby bows" has pretty much been the most entertaining thing I've done all week. But here's my point: I have been a mom to a baby girl for over six months now, and thus far I have managed to successfully avoid the wide world of Terrifyingly Large Hair Accessories. But Lucy, poor Lucy, was in need of *something* for her little fuzzy duck head.
You'd be amazed how difficult it is to find anything not layered with lace, organza, taffeta, fake flowers, 4 pattern of ribbons, and/or looking like it's straight from the Bedazzler factory. But, I have prevailed. I present to you, a nice simple headband, covered in your choice of kicky vintage fabrics. (not to mention, they fit me too...which I'll definitely keep in mind if I ever decide to move past the super awesome ponytail I've been rocking since Lucy's birth).
Notice how nicely it's causing the 3 inch hair spike to act like a respectable set of bangs! I'll post the link to where I got it at some point. Also, I'm pretty sure they'd take about 3 minutes to make, if I were so inclined. (sadly, they only take like 3 seconds to buy. You see my quandry).
