Hair Pretties Galore!

I've mentioned before that my oldest daughter is trying to earn money to buy a laptop.  My 9-year-old decided it sounded like a good idea, so now she's looking for ways to earn money too.

This is what we've been making for the last couple of help them both make some moolah.

Aren't they so much fun?  My nieces and my cousin's little girls needed some 'hair pretties', so we learned how to make these pinwheel bows to sell to them.

I'm sad that we ran out of ribbon, cause I'm thinking we need some for us to keep too!!

I taught both my girls how to make basic bows too.  Don't they look great?!

Not sure why this picture is sideways, but here's some more basic bows.

We turned some of the rolled fabric flowers we made a few weeks ago into hair clips as well.  Love them!!

And we even threw in a few headbands too!

We had so much fun making these!  The girls have decided they want to have a booth at our local craft fair in November too.... so I guess we'll be working hard for the next couple of months making more hair pretties, bottle cap earrings, and whatever else we can think of to sell.  I've never had a booth in a craft fair before, so I'm not sure what to expect.  Do any of you have any advice?  Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated!!

I'm linking to these parties:

That is great that you are teaching your daughters how to be productive and support themselves. I am excited when my kids get old enough to have experiences like these! Cute bows!
