    These scrunchies are a great way to hold a pony tail without damaging your hair. If you have fine silky hair you may need a covered band to hold a pony tail but a scrunchie covering it will dress up your hair. Use production sewing techniques to sew a bag full to have on hand and match every possible outfit!

    This headband is very versatile and can be as wide as you want. It is a perfect solution to being able to protect your hair from the sun if you are staying outside but at the same time, only have a headband if that's the look you want. The fabric covered elastic prevents your hair from being damaged and it's comfortable to wear. I wear one at the pool, since there are no strings, I don't end up with string lines in my tan and my hair stays protected from the sun.

Helps make memories and a great outfit by topping the outfit off with a matching hat! A hat also protects against sunburn and possible skin cancer so making your own hat is a winner in more ways than one!
