I have had the stampede strings for Lisa from laughing orcha ranch done for a while now. I have some other things I made for her for pay it forward but I can't give it all away. Shes just gonna have to wait and see what else I have crammed into the box for her. I might need a bigger box I keep finding things.
I just had to add the button and ring knots. The ring knot slides and is adjustable for however tight she wants those stampede strings to be.
I am envying Lisa for getting to wear this set of stampede strings. I had a ton of fun making them. I haven't made stampede strings in a long time because most people want hat bands, necklaces, earrings or bracelets. Stampede strings are not only pretty they keep your hat on in the wind. I have decided I am going to make myself a pair with the rest of Naigen's hair.
I have had a few other questions too mostly about mane hair.
I can braid mane hair, buuuuuut. You knew there was going to be a but.
I do not like to braid mane hair.
I will charge you double to braid mane hair into something I normally use tail hair to do (like a bracelet or necklace)
However I can and do the following with mane hair.
A set of braided or tassle earrings or pendant for a necklace and tassles for any project requiring them like a shoo fly. I actually prefer mane hair for making tassels. It makes a much nicer tassel and doesn't kink like tail hair does when made into a tassel. I have also added mane hair to dream catchers. I can however weave the web in a dream catcher with tail hair and it turns out quite nice.
Heres another piece for a blogger. It's a short shoo fly/key fob/whatever you want it to be. I fancied it up with a peyote bead stitch because it's quite thick and would have taken forever to make a button knot around it.
Hope you all are having as good a day as I am here. Other than having to jump up to my thighs into a creek/small river to rescue one farms neglectful neighbors dog from drowning the day has gone relatively smooth. A warning for all those out there, do not go swimming yet, the water is still WAAAYY too cold. Thank goodness for the random assortment of stuff I carry in my car I had a pair of jeans from my trip to Toronto on the weekend that fell out of my bag.
