loc-hair ties (homemade)










pic 1
pic 2






These are some loc-hair ties I made. It's not easy to get donuts and pipes here(UK) so I've used old earrings, buttons, beads. The large white one can be worn 2 ways (as in pic 1) or another way (pic 2 ). I'm reviving this old passion, I've got a bag full of odds and ends ,beads, broken earrings etc so I shall be experimenting. At least the elastics are easy enough to come by. I like making pretty stuff like these.

There is a great NeedleCraft shop here in Hemel just behind the old Kodak building....its like a sweet shop for DIYers.....inside is as if time stopped...no fancy shopfittings...quite lovely. Everytime i go in there i always feel like I ought to make more things for myself. Its got to the point when my son accompanys me and he knows I'll be stopping there he always opt to stay in the car. Enough said!!!
Am sure there are some great Craft shops in St.Albans.
