quite possibly the best use for polyester ever...

One vendor at the farmers' market last Saturday was upcycling double knit polyester shirts and vintage buttons into adorable hair accessories. It just might have been the best and most clever use for polyester that I've ever seen. How could I resist buying two fancy bobby pins from her?

one is red and black
and the other is brown, cream, and pale yellow
I love them and have already worn each of them more than once!

Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog! Sounds like we are on the same page... how funny that you're planning train and construction parties too! I also have two boys (one is coming in about 2 weeks though!)

These are lovely. Hair pretties always make me smile. :)

I have seen hutterite women make rugs out of polyester that are beautiful too. I love the ideas I am finding on your site!
