New Hair Net Listing

6 Sep

I created a new listing for my large hair nets on eBay. After getting several requests from customers about other colors and/or quantities, I wondered how many customers didn’t buy because they didn’t want to bother with a special request.  Now it is very simple to order your large hairnet through a fixed price listing offering the choice of net style or flower style. You can also choose from one of the basic colors: black, brown, natural, and white.  I will still continue to list auctions for the large style, to gain more exposure.

Check out the new listing here!

Talents

4 Sep

I have crocheted so many hair nets sometimes I seldom think of it as anything special. Anyone could do the same.

Today I saw someone on eBay left this comment in my feedback: praise God for your talent.

That simple statement made me stop and think awhile. Actually I thought about it several times today.

It was a great reminder to me to remember that anything I can do is a talent from God and I should always praise and thank Him for it!

Thank-you to my customer who gave me this reminder! (even if unintended)

Crocheting Inventory

2 Aug

Otherwise known as recuperating from illness! 🙂When I got sick last week, I decided to see how much of this:I could turn into this:The result is that I have lots of “inventory” hair nets now. 😉 That’s always good as I have already been caught not having a particular hair net made.  This isn’t usually a problem as I can made them up in an hour or two, but it always feels better to be a step ahead. I have been doing other projects as well, to save my hands and to keep from going “crazy”! I get really sick of doing the same thing over and over. As usual my stack of books has been rather distracting! I also got out a baby afghan I started a long time ago and finished that the other day. That was fun! I started another blanket yesterday so who knows how long that will take. The problem with alternating projects like that is that I try to crochet loose for the blankets and then my hair nets start getting bigger, too, as I am still in that mode. So I have to remember to switch modes in my head and my fingers!

Purple, Purple, and More Purple… and Black

6 Dec

Thanksgiving weekend I got an order for 9 purple hair nets! 🙂 I had one done, so I sat down and made 8 more purple hair nets! I must admit I was a bit purpled-out by the time I was done.

Right now I have an order for 4 large hair nets -all black! I had one made and I made one yesterday so I only have 2 more to make, and one more for inventory.

I have another purple one available here. And a black one coming soon. In the mean time you can check out my brown and white ones.

Hair Net / Bun Cover Pictures

7 Jul

A couple of weeks ago someone asked me for pictures of the hair nets actually modeled on hair. These pictures are the result! I asked my sisters to take pictures of their girls wearing the bun covers. (I don’t think the girls were too impressed). Thanks, ladies!  I couldn’t decide which pictures to use because they are all so cute so here is almost all of them! 🙂 It’s kinda scary how it makes the girls look so grown up! Am I getting old?!

As always you can find these hair nets / bun covers on both eBay and Etsy

Large Black and White Hairnets

28 Jun

I got the large black flower style hair net/bun cover listed in my Etsy shop yesterday. I was feeling kind of out-of-it so I didn’t get much listed this week yet. I got the large white flower hair net listed this morning. This is now all the colors in this style I have available. The others were the brown and light brown.

If you have long and or thick hair and need a hair net with plenty of room, these large nets would be just the thing!

The large size hairnets are made the same styles as the smaller ones except they are larger. This style has two scallop rows on the top, giving the ‘flower’ two rows of petals.

I finally got my large size hair nets listed on Etsy today.
These hairnets / bun covers are about 5 1/2″ across when laying flat. They will fit most large buns. I use this size myself and it is a little too big. (That’s no problem though because the extra just gets tucked under the bun with hair pins.)

Why I make Hairnets

22 Jun

I began making hairnets for myself. While I enjoy making pretty things such as doilies, coasters, ect, I have always had had interest in making useful things. To me, a hairnet is something useful that I can make for myself instead of buying them. The real bargain is that the homemade ones last way longer, too!
After I began making them for myself, I thought others could be using these too. When I first started selling them, I had no idea there is such a market for bun covers.
I believe in the literal translation of the Bible in 1 Corinthians 11 where it teaches that Christian women should cover their hair with a veiling. I do not believe and do not promote that the bun cover/hairnets that I make should take the place of the veiling. They only cover part of the hair, and do not provide an adequate covering of the hair. The hair net is to keep the hair in place so that a veiling can be worn neatly over it. If the bun cover is someone’s first step towards wearing a veiling, I do not condemn you in that, but I do pray that you will continue to learn and grow to an understanding of wearing the headship veiling.
I know that many people use bun covers for a variety of reasons, some of which, I would not encourage. I do hope to be a witness to my customers of the principles taught in God’s word.
Wearing a veiling has long been a practice of the Mennonite and Amish people and is often associated with them. That is one reason why I put the words Amish & Mennonite in the title of my listings. I hope that draws the attention of those honestly seeking a method of Biblically covering their hair.

 

Navy Blue Crocheted Hair Net Bun Cover Amish Mennonite

20 Jun

Another auction on eBay for this week.

I have here a hair net/ bun cover for sale. I love to crochet and here is a finished product of my work for you to enjoy.  I crocheted this hair net by hand using navy blue size 10 cotton crochet thread.  The outside round has an elastic pony tail holder (no metal!) crocheted into. This helps the hair net to form around the bun.  This hair net will fit most average small – medium size buns.  If you have thick hair you will probably need a bigger size.  If the hair net is a little too big, it can be tucked under with hair pins.  Read full description

Crocheted Hair Nets / Bun Covers

16 Jun

Right now my most popular items are the hair nets. These nets are made in the bun cover style, so they are covers that just fit over your hair bun. The regular, real thin, hair nets are made big and you twist or fold them down to the size of your bun. (I may use those terms –hair net & bun cover- interchangeably, but I am referring to the same bun cover-style product).

The nets come in two designs: the Flower Style and the Traditional Net Style.

Traditional Net Style - Gray

The traditional net style is the regular one with ‘holes’ in it. The flower style is a pattern I made up and it has a ‘flower’ pattern on the back of it.

Flower Style Hair Net - Brown

I have made them many different colors. I have done some pastel variegated, pinks, and other colors. The ones I prefer are the neutral black, brown, light brown, natural or ecru, and white. It seems most customers prefer those colors also, as they sell the most.

I have chosen the neutral colors to try to match hair colors. It took me awhile to settle on the light brown and natural colors. I found the light brown on eBay after searching the internet for it. After I got it I realized it wasn’t as light as I thought it would be. Eventually I stumbled onto the ecru and really like that as a good color to go with light-colored hair.

Best Seller

4 Jun

My most popular items are the hair nets/ bun covers. Right now my best seller is the black flower style.

Flower Style Black Hair Net / Bun Cover

I crochet these hair nets by hand using black size 10 cotton crochet thread.  The outside round has an elastic pony tail holder crocheted into. This helps the hair net to form around the bun.  These hair nets will fit most average small to medium size buns.  If you have lots of thick hair you will probably need a bigger size.  If the hair net is a little too big, it can be tucked under with hair pins. When laying flat these nets are about 3 ½” across. I try to make them all the same size, but they do vary a tiny bit sometimes.

I use a homemade hair net every day and I love it! I can use one for months and it doesn’t wear out nearly as quick as normal hair nets. And I use lots of hair pins! 

It is easy to care for your hair net.  I recommend washing by hand in cold water to minimize shrinking. You can throw them in the washing machine, but they don’t come out very nice. You may use a mild detergent on them. Air dry and that’s all that’s to it!

The hair nets are useful for any occasion and work perfectly for Amish and Mennonite hair styles. They fit most types of hair buns even though the nets are made round.  I use them on all kinds of buns including flip-style buns.
