My Best Ideas Never Leave My Office.

Yesterday I came up with this idea for my Etsy shop. Of course the light bulb went off when I was in the middle of doing something else -- cleaning off my desk. I spied some fabric out of the corner of my eye, and DING, I knew exactly what I needed to do with it. So, I dropped what I was doing and went to work. This was my idea.



I LOVE it! But..... it took over 1 1/2 hours to make, which in my world is much too long. I would have to charge and arm and a leg for one of these babies, and few people would pay that much for a headband -- unless it had an Anthropologie tag tucked in there somewhere.
Another good idea, down the drain.

I had to post of picture of it though so you could see what you are missing.

Post Script: I bartered away my beautiful headband. The oh so talented, Lyndsay J is going to hook me up with some new blog designs. I love trades, especially when I get the good end of the bargain!

That is gorgeous! I totally understand, there are lots of things I'd love to make to sell, but I know no one would ever want to pay what I'd have to ask.
