Something New! Hand-Printed Button Hair Clips and Ponytail Holders!

Last night, I put up the first of many listings into my Etsy shop for my new product line: hand-printed fabric button hair accessories. I'd had been thinking about this ever since I saw fabric ink listed in another Etsy shop and thought it would be a great idea to use rubber stamps to make some custom buttons. Plus, it was a good excuse to buy some Japanese rubber stamps! As far as I can tell, this hasn't been done anywhere else (at least not on Etsy), so I'm calling these a Ladybug Limited original.

Anyways, here are the results so far:There's lots more for me to photograph and list, but Bug's patience will only hold out so long, so I'll be adding these to my shop all week. The initials set and ladybugs set are, of course, her 2 favorites, so they were the first I listed. I'm partial to the tricycles myself.

The great thing about these clips and ponies is that any design can be done in any of the 12 colors I have. After stamping these on an unbleached quality muslin, I heat set the fabric ink, so no worries about the design fading or rubbing off.

So are there any designs you'd like to see? I have more holiday ones coming, as well as more animals and some botanicals. I had to make sure to do lots of hearts for Valentine's Day-- they'll make great little favors for Mugger's kindergarten class. I'll be posting them to this section of my shop, so feel free to check in!
