Something Bright, Something New

It’s been a tough and bizarre last couple months – incredibly trying to say the least. Which explains why I have been incognito. With all the gloom settling behind me; with no desire to look back, I’m sharing a headband that was a joy to make.

BerkeleyBowCoWedding Bow

What I had in mind for this bow was beautiful beginnings and celebrations of these beginnings. So for instance,  a couple joined in holy matrimony, a new addition to the family, a baptism.

I chose a champagne shade for the bow and overlaid it with ivory lace. I used another kind of lace for the “wings” or accents..whatever you want to call it 🙂

I kept wanting to add more beauty, more femininity without overdoing it. I pulled out my translucent lavender ribbon and crisscrossed the center. Having secured that with thread, I cinched the center with a pretty periwinkle to pull it all together.

The headband itself is made from soft fold over elastic. Here, it is in ivory with a subtle sheen. You will notice there is a pearl and rosette pattern attached – this is a lovely pre-made “wedding” craft ribbon that I found at Hobby Lobby. I thought it would be just perfect for this headband.

Hope you liked it! it sure was fun to make. You can find it at my shop following this link 🙂
