which side?

*

elfling is 9 months old, & still i forget which breast he last nursed. friends suggested i wear a hairband on my wrist, switching it to the other wrist each time i nursed. this didn't work for me as i often would use it to tie back my hair. it did give me an idea though.

i tinkered with a tiny hairband, grosgrain, & various notions. i liked the concept, but had yet to come up with a bracelet i liked enough to wear. that changed when going through the vintage lace & trim in my mother's studio.

using some of her lace, i made a sweet little bracelet. i've worn it for 2 weeks now, & love it! it's pretty, soft, comfortable, & holds up to all the off-on-off-on action.

what you see in that photo up there are the first 4 created for theshop! woohoo, indeed. the 2 lacey ones are identical to mine. you know, in case you want to be my twin ;)

for now all the bracelets shall be backed with ivory grosgrain. it's what i have. if these sell well, then i'll buy black & brown ribbon.

well that's all for today. i've got a sleeping bébé on my lap, & a book waiting to be read. talk to you soon. until then, have a lovely day.

~peace.

Great idea! I wish I had one when I was nursing. (and a great use for your mom's notions, I bet she would have liked that)

Love them! It is so touching that they are made from your mom's supplies! Very touching. It will truly bless those that buy one!
