What a super collection of hair accessories! I have made yo-yo barrettes and pins, and headbands covered in gathered fabric, and needed some more inspiration! I like to sew in both a hair barrette type clip as well as a pin clasp to the back so the wearer can place it in the hair or as a clothing pin. These types of flowered pins can even work as a bolero closure! Thanks for so,e more great ideas and inspiration!
