is it one of those toupee things that you can't stop staring at to see if it moves? ie: everyone is fascinated by it

things on a hairband then,like feathers and whatnot ?

They are hats for people who don't like to wear hats - a few flowers, some spikey bits to add texture, maybe a bead or two, and there you have it.

Still prefer a fastenater

MaryAnnSingleton Sat 18-Aug-07 18:31:56

I like the idea of ercxhing something to the top of your head.

MaryAnnSingleton Sat 18-Aug-07 18:34:08

probably wouldn't muss your hair up like a hat would

Pixiefish Sat 18-Aug-07 18:35:10

it's a large stapler that I use when I craft have a look down this page
