FO: Flowery Headband

I love making flowers, knitting them or crocheting them. A couple of years ago I thought I might make a business out of this love for the botanical… it hasn’t happened yet, but it could still happen! In the meantime I am content making flowers and flower headbands as gifts for others.

Like this one. A perfect headband for Spring with pink daisies…a quick and easy make, which I finished in a couple of days.

I absolutely adore making hair accessories, hair bands, little flower crowns, etc. Maybe because I have boys and this is my way of making pretty things? Who knows!

Here’s one happy little girl with her headband and another lot of hair accessories I made for her. Stay tuned for pictures another day!

Black and White Wedding Flowers

Our cousin (my husband’s cousin) got married back in December to the beautiful mother of his gorgeous daughter…they kept the wedding pretty low key, but I knew I wanted to make something for the bride and after getting a brief from her: ‘black and white’ I went ahead and knitted up something for her, for the groom and for their gorgeous girl.

So I got my DROPS Muscat out in black and white and knit up two white hollyhooks, one white rose and five small daisy like flowers in black and white.

Out of one I fashioned a bracelet for the bride.

I love the end result, and I think it worked out really well, it was quite compact and not the lightest bracelet, but it looks wonderful on my gorgeous friend. She asked me to put it on her as she was walking down the aisle…so I was part of the ceremony.

I made up two little hairclips for their daughter, matching one of the small flowers in the bracelet.

And doesn’t she look just gorgeous in it?

Finally, I made our cousin a boutonnière (I have to Google that word every time I need to write it out). Again, the flowers are matching the bracelet.

I was also asked to put this on for our cousin…as he danced his way to his bride.

I am really pleased to have been included in their celebrations to have been able to make something unique for them. Something they can treasure forever, since knitted flowers last forever.

And look at this beautiful family…don’t they look ecstatically happy?

Sweet Rosebud Hairclips

As I am working behind the scenes on my #knittedbotanicals handmade business a few things pop up that I want to share straight away. And that is the case with these sweet rosebud hairclips that I made for a friend’s daughter. She was going to her aunts wedding and needed something to go with her sweet green and pink dress.

And it’s such a quick little project, I knit up the rosebuds and then attached them to hairclip. I think the entire thing didn’t take longer than 1 hour. But I think the result is wonderful. And my friends little girl looks absolutely adorable wearing them.

Daisy Headband

I have been so busy knitting up stock behind the scenes and am in the process of sewing up loads of it, but I wanted to showcase one of the first finished products that I have available.

It is this sweet daisy headband, made entirely from DROPS Muskat, which is 100% mercerised cotton.

The plastic headband itself, which will fit a little girl to adult head, is covered with a light green knitted tube and the flower is sewn on tightly.

Perfect for any little girl, but I also love wearing it!

This will go up in the shop soon, in the meantime, if you are interested in one, please get in touch!
