A new headband for you and women everywhere.

I announced on Facebook and Twitter a few weeks ago that 50% of my sales with Princess Lasertron for the rest of the year will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to honor my friend Jordan’s mother Cora Delmundo who passed away in her battle with breast cancer this month. For the remaining days I decided I’d really rather donate more but I don’t really have the ability without more sales. So for the remainder of the year, I’ve also designed a pink felt flower headband for you and I’m donating ALL of the sales of this headband. One hundred percent. Here are a few photos of it below–Alice is modeling, but it does fit an adult. Smile.

I can send as many of these as I can sell, and I would love to make a huge donation to help those who are touched by the tragedy of breast cancer. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation offers hope for a cure in our lifetimes by funding leading medical centers who are doing the most innovative research about breast cancer and increasing awareness about breast health and screening. I also love that 91 cents of every dollar spent by the BCRF is used directly for research and awareness–they’re one of the most fiscally responsible charities in the country. I would love to see them get more support and I would love to send them a check on January 1 with your help.

If you want a headband, contact me with your PayPal e-mail address via e-mail (meg@princesslasertron.com) or comment and I will invoice you for $40, which includes the shipping cost. 100% of your payment will be donated to the amazing, fantastic, passionate people at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and all of those who breast cancer has affected. This headband is cute, it’s wool felt, and if there’s another color you’d rather have I’d be happy to make it! And please do also peruse the things I’m stocking right now in the Princess Lasertron store–50% of those sales will be donated as well for the remainder of 2012.

I hope it makes you feel good to see this felt headband on your dresser or hanging over a lampshade, wherever you keep your special headbands, and when you put it on I hope your heart feels big. When people compliment you when you wear it, I hope you get a chance to them about the important work the BCRF is committed to. I’m doing this to use my talents to form a link with women who feel moved like I do to fight cancer and fund this important research. I can use my gifts to create beauty, maybe inspire you, maybe just make you feel cute sometimes when you go out, and with your help we can send a check to make a big difference for all of the people who are fighting for a cure.

Hello Fearless: My friend Sara’s new company for female entrepreneurs, and an interview with me!

Several years ago (probably around the time of the first Big Omaha conference) I met Sara Davidson through the Silicon Prairie startup community, and as two creative (and outspoken) women in the community we became fast friends. I remember one time in particular when I was going through my divorce, I was at a party…

The Sewists: A beautiful new craft & design book by Josephine Perry

After over two years in the making, crafter/artist/author Joesphine Perry's beautiful new book The Sewists: DIY Projects from 20 Top Designer-Makers is available for pre-order! I'm incredibly excited and honored to be one of the featured designers, along with several of my crafty design idols including Julie Jackson of Subversive Cross Stitch and Jaime Jennings and Amber Corcoran, the girls from Fancy Tiger. When I received the book in the mail today I was first struck by the beauty of the cover and elegant simplicity of the project layouts. It even comes with a CD with all the templates.

Things I’ve Learned Trying to Break Into Plus-Sized Retail

I used to think that retailers that didn't carry plus sizes were deliberately excluding a huge segment of the market, but as a small retailer that is trying hard to offer those sizes to our customers, we've learned so much about the extended sizing landscape in ready-to-wear fashion.

DIY: A Fabric Flower Crown from my book, Fabric Blooms!

Crowning Glory Rose Bouquet Headband

One of my favorite trends right now are flower headbands. They're whimsical in a tall, teased-up hairdo, and they can be sweet and demure on a favorite little girl in your life. I made this headband in shades of yellow and pink roses, but once you get the hang of this technique you can re-create it with other flower types, different colors, and other fabrics for a completely different look that's personal to you. Each step is included in the photo below, so you can sort of see how the process looks as you create the headband. These instructional photos are one of my favorite things about Fabric Blooms--they're beautiful, easy to follow, and they were a lot of fun to style with photographer Justin Limoges! Thanks too to my model, Sarah Lorsung Tvrdik aka Fash Flood aka my business partner!
