I could not find headbands for little girls or women that were halfway decent and at a reasonable price. I started my search for these items at Fabric Depot where I work in the Special Orders department. Using ready made headbands with different colors and plastic non-covered headbands, and the decorative elastic, I began creating my own with a theme. I used ribbons, trims, organzas, liquid lamé, bias tape, tulle, feathers, silk flowers, plain and beaded appliqués, plastic jewels, crystals, and glass beads.
As I was making hair accessories, I started thinking about the themed button packages. It seemed that there were so many different kinds for little boys, such as cars, dinosaurs, sport themes, bugs, pirates, monsters, lizards, etc. And so, I began making belts and suspendeors for little boys.
