wow! I just had a wicked flashback to grade 6. I used to swap those with all my friends at school. We'd sit around at recess and make a ton of them. We were way more sophisticated than those grade 5 sticker swappers. :P

Ack! I skipped over here from Tania's blog and my gawd, I NEED THOSE BARRETTES! Can you make some with blues and purples and those little plastic beads on the ends? So I can pretend I'm 9 again and try to put them in perfectly so they don't make my head crooked? (I did that too) I can trade you a print of my work or even a mini painting if you say yes!

I remember wanting my barrettes to look just like the ones that Olivia Newton John wore in "Xanadu." My mom would make tons of these for me and my sister in all different color ribbons and beads. Your post really brought back some memories!

amy k.

oh-I used to frantically make these to match my outfit before I left the house-I'd work my little fingers sooo fast. I used beads on the ends of mine-in pinks and purples-oh thank you for the goodness-now please wear them-and post a photo!

myra

I'm wearing them right now, no picture though - they are too lopsided! :)

susanne

tee hee! my mom used to make us those barrettes to match our outfits. funny, i was telling my aunt the other week that she should start making them (and other old school knick knacks) again. bring back the 80's yo! (but in a good way, not a member's only jacket way)

Anamaria

I've been planning to make some of those as favors for my little girl's birthday party (she's only one, but the other moms will remember them!)! There's a little tutorial here:

I like the flowers on yours!

oh i loved those barettes - i had only three of them, in pink and white, and i would just puff with such pride whenever i wore them. and i just lusted after all the others girls' barettes with crazy colors and beads that clicked against each other. thans for posting that tutorial, anamaria, i'm definitely going to be makin some tonight, age be damned! ;)

amanda

Oh my gosh, I so remember those. I think I remember putting beads on mine, too. And of course, making some to match each favorite outfit! Wow...thanks (I think?) for bringing me back!

Kris

WOW, talking about bringing back memories. I loved to wear those with my semi-long black hair, and YES had one in every color too. I should make some for my girls to wear - though maybe there crafty aunty will--he, he!

jenn

I remember those too!! we also used to wear little safety pins on our sneaker laces with beads on them...

Andrea

I remember those little beaded safety pins! We used to push the seed beads over and around the loop at the bottom of the pin to get them to other side. I always managed to prick my finger -- the dangers of crafting in 3rd Grade.

I saw Pinku's hair accessories swap and the first thing I thought of were those barrettes. I remember my mom making those for me and I wondered if anyone would think of making them for the accessories swap. What do you know? We were on the same wavelength :).

K. Anne

I swear that I have a grade school picture with barettes like those in my hair! Oh the memories! Does this mean we are getting old?

K. Anne

I remember those! I was in grade school at the time. How do you make them anyways? I wonder if my oldest would go for wearing them. She's so not a girly-girl.
