I love cherry blossoms, and just now here in Santa Cruz they are blooming!
This barrette is made with leather, and is sewn all by hand.

I love orchids! So I had to try to make an orchid barrette. I had to stare at a calendar of flowers, since the month of February had orchids.
The orchid is sewn by hand with 30% wool nylon blend felt, and is beaded with pink glass beads.
I think I need to make one in leather soon!

Hi everyone! So I decided to start a blog to post my creations, and my endeavors to get my barrettes in stores!
Above is one of my barrettes. I should also make it a pin though, not everyone wants to wear a huge sunflower on their head.
The flower petals are made of wool/nylon felt, and the center is a snake pattern stamped onto cow leather.
Sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers (next to orchids). I grow them every spring at my parents house, and in the summer they are so huge and beautiful! I recently got a neighborhood garden plot, so I'm excited to start growing sunflowers their too.
