Springtime Baby Headbands - And GIVEAWAY!

Sunday, April 1, 2012

I love the Japanese fabric-folding technique (aka kanzashi). It creates the most eye-popping 3-dimensional flowers for kids' headbands.  I could make these all day long, it's just so fun to see them come together.

Without fail, if Sisi wears one of these out and about, she gets 3x as many oohs, awws and cheek pinches as she normally does (and she normally gets a lot :)  I've come to realize, you just can't deny the power of a cute kids' accessory. 

(And lots of others I created as gifts for mommy friends ...)
*******Here's where the giveaway part comes.  My first ever giveaway, can you believe it?*******


The rules are very simple. (BTW, I think it's hilarious how complicated blog giveaways have gotten these days. For example, one must subscribe, tweet, facebook, pin, tell 6 friends, and do 3 cartwheels.  I kid!)
  1. Leave a comment telling me which of the three headbands modeled by my cute kidlet you would like, and who will be donning it when you win (your kid?  your niece? your unborn child? yourself?- the headbands are pretty stretchy, so you could probably wear it :) 
  2. That's it!  I would greatly appreciate it if you subscribed to the Petal and Thorn Blog one way or another, but it's not mandatory.  Just make sure your profile has some sort of info whereby I can contact you if you win.  
I'll pick a winner randomly on Monday April 9th.  Good luck!  (If winner is outside of the U.S., item will be shipped first class, with no tracking or guaranteed arrival date.  Just so ya' know.)

See more awesomely cute Petal and Thorn Kidlet accessories at my Petal and Thorn shop.

My 4 month old Leah would like the persimmon orange and powder blue. She loves her boba headband i got for her!

Your creativity and craftiness never cease to amaze me, Kristin! I showed Rebecca this post to see if she would point out a favorite, but all she kept saying is "bebe bow" which I'm translating as she likes all of the headbands. My favorite is the red, pink, and turquoise though. Adorable!

These are so adorable! I would want #3 for my niece. :) You are seriously so talented!!


Kat April 1, 2012 at 11:47 PM

So adorable, Kristin! As usual, I'm in awe of your creativity and ability to actual produce the adorable things you think up! My favorite is #3 hopefully for April, if she'll keep it on. Otherwise for my cousin's little girl, due in June. :)

They're all lovely but I think I would choose the coral and crisp white for my little niece. My sister-in-law loves to put her in headbands and yours are so beautiful and unique! =)

Anne- I'm a happa, so Sisi is a "quappa" :) Calleigh is a beautiful name- might have to steal that next time around.

Wowee, look at all those comments. Been thinking of you lately, as I made a bunch of sugar free chocolate snacking balls (??) and they're so good. Reminds me of you! My favourite is definitely the persimmon and powder blue - gorgeous! I will have to look up the technique now and see if I can give it a go.
