Running Headbands

As you probably know by now, I’m a runner.  Actually, a better term for me might be a ‘jogger.’   Either way, when I’m exercising, the last thing I want to worry about is my hair and whether or not it is going to stay out of my face.  I am not a fan of hair in my face, especially when running. 

These non-slip headbands, however, are great for other times of the day too- not just during exercise.  Throw on a headband if you don’t have time to fix your hair in the morning.  

Enough of what I think of the headbands!  I will share with you some feedback I’ve gotten from some happy-HankOrange-headband-wearing ladies! :) 

“I Love my running headband!  It is fashionable AND functional!  I look great while I'm at the gym and also it looks great for an errand afterwards!  The color is super fun and stylish!" 
Jamie, Tennessee

“This headband does a great job at staying in place.  I wear it when I work out and I rarely have to adjust it.  I have also recieved quite a few compliments on it when I wear it out and about.  Even when I do not have time to tame my hair the band still makes me feel sassy.” 
Cassey, California           

“Love the colors and how it STAYS IN PLACE!!!”
Rachel, Colorado

There is not a day that goes by now that I don't wear some sort of headband, whether it is for my run/workout, or for my daily life as a mom.  Thanks to HankOrange, I now have multiple options to get me through my days.  HankOrange creates stylish and fun options that stay in better than any others I have worn in the past.  I wear them out of function but love them because they make me look better and feel fashionable when I am on the go.  You will get hooked after your first one!”
Allison, Oregon

New ‘Allison’ Clutch/Wristlet

Another product born out of a request from a friend!  
My good friend Allison asked me if I could make a wristlet/ wallet that she could easily throw into her diaper bag.  Being a busy mom of three, she is constantly on the go and wanted something that could hold all the ‘essentials’ but also small enough to slide into her diaper bag.  

I have actually made a clutch type purse before, but I wasn’t totally thrilled with the outcome.  I thought I could come up with a new and improved version!   

So, I accepted the challenge!   

And, the ‘Allison’ wristlet was born!   
I think it turned out really cute!  I’ve made a few so far.  I liked it so much I even made one for myself!  Thanks for the great suggestion Aly, AND trusting that I could create exactly what you wanted!

Another Angry Bird!

I've added another 'angry bird' to the collection.  After purchasing a red Angry Bird shirt for her son, a customer asked if I could make a blue angry bird onesie for her baby.
My response? Of course!  I can try that!  So, here is what I came up with.

I love the idea of the two brothers being angry birds :)

Angry Birds

The boys at my house (husband and son) have a slight addiction.    And by ‘slight’ I mean when the two of them are together, they are usually found feeding this addiction of theirs. 

What is their addiction?  Angry Birds, a game they play on the iphone.
I don’t really understand the game, and honestly, I don’t even care to understand it.  I’m not one who finds much entertainment in video games.  I have my own addictions (see fabric addiction post) so I guess I shouldn’t complain. 
I do, however, think it is funny that my three year old son can beat my husband!

A friend of mine made an ‘angry bird’ pumpkin and that gave me an idea.  Maybe I could make my little man a shirt?!   Knowing how excited my son gets about Angry Birds, I figured he’d love it.  He did love the shirt - for about five minutes.  He was thrilled when he saw it, but he refuses to wear it.  Typical!   

I guess I will just let the boys play their game.  And I will do what I do.  And I will make Angry Bird shirts for those who will actually appreciate them!

Sweatshirt re-do

Occasionally I look at other crafty blogs-- Sometimes for ideas and inspiration and sometimes just to see what others are doing.  I am repeatedly impressed by the creativity I observe on various blogs and often I see tutorials I want to try.  Often, however, I don’t.  I have a list of “I should try this” ideas, but the list “to-try” keeps getting longer, while the list of “did-try” remains about the same…short.

I did, however, try out a tutorial this past week.  I saw this “sweatshirt liposuction” tutorial on this blog: See Kate Sew.  Super fun blog, by the way! 

I loved what Kate did to the oversized sweatshirt and I wanted to try it!   So, I headed off to the local Goodwill and found myself a sweatshirt that looked like a good candidate for the ‘re-do.’

Here is the sweatshirt I found:
 I liked the design on the back!

And the what it looks like now:

I think next time I will try to find a sweatshirt that is much bigger to begin with, but I think this one turned out cute!  And, I have worn it just about everyday here since the temperature has been dropping!
