Ideas Coming Out of My Ears and a Giveaway!

Last week (or was it two weeks ago now?) Johanna and her mom gave me a suggestion that prompted some other ideas that I can't believe I didn't already think of!

Their idea was to make and sell some plain hats and then sell flower pins separately allowing customers to customize their own hats. I LOVE the idea and am working on it now. I plan to list plain hats in various colors and then list flowers, individually and in sets of probably three. I think I'll list specific sets, and leave the option of customization (color and style) open.

In addition, I have decided to  start selling flower hair clips, bobby pins, and headbands, both crocheted headbands and regular headbands. I've started making some flowers in different colors and styles, but won't be posting the new items in my Etsy store until I have time to buy the materials needed and really do this right. Today's snow day helped and hindered in this process as I had lots of time to work, but couldn't really go out and get the materials I need.

I also need your help! I'm posting some pictures of the flowers I've made so far. The pictures don't do them justice, but it's all I have right now. Anyway, please leave a comment with your opinion of this whole idea. Do you have any suggestions for colors or designs? What would you like to see me make? Would you make any changes? In return, I will pick one person who comments who will receive a free pin, clip, or headband; your choice!


  1. I LOVE your flower hats, so I'm sure this idea will take off as well! :) I do love bright colors, but lately, I've been trying to find the softer, more neutral colors made of more textured yarn that looks almost lacy. Do you know what I mean? I think hair clips made out of the more textured yarns would be very chic! Have fun, I'll look forward to the updates! :)

  2. Everything you make is amazing! I miss you. And I think all of your ideas are great! If I had a job I would be buying lots of things from you! They are just so cute!
    Say hi to Steve for me:)

  3. Lorena, your blog is so fun to read-- I love to see everything you come up with! I have to say that working beads into your yarn projects looks really creative. Have you thought about doing embellished scarves?

  4. Thanks for the comments, ladies. I promise to post results soon...it slipped my mind!
