Those look awesome! I was planning on sewing 5 quilts for Christmas, but had some major flareups, and was unable to get a single one done 🙁

So I am going to work on them for next year, and instead decided to make everyone jars of apple butter, apple pie moonshine, and some maple cinnamon roasted pecans. I might do peanut brittle too but I’m unsure if I’ll get around to that.

@missmess:  I’m not at all up with the latest trends.  Are these just used like a typical hair elastic/ponytail holder?  If not, can you share a pic or link to a pic with someone wearing one?

@AB Bride:  They’re not supposed to leave the bump in your hair after letting your hair down (unlike regular ties). I wear them daily… a friend of mine made me a few for my birthday and my mom bought me some. I love the ones my friend made because they don’t fray unlike the store bought ones.
