Ideas for storing hair accessories for girls? - Page 2

post #21 of 23
Do you sew? There's a tute floating round the interwebs for making a crayon holder - basically a roll-up piece of fabric with little pockets to individually hold all the crayons (or pencils or markers). Very easy to make, the pocket are just one long pocket divided by lots of vertical rows of stitching.

I made one for my friend who has heaps of hairtoys. I made the divided pocket slant downwards (in a wave pattern, actually) so some of the pockets were shorter than others. And I made some of the divisions wider than others. So she had some tall, skinny pockets for hairsticks, a short, fat pocket for her wide-toothed comb, etc. I also added a strap over which to thread bobby pins; and the whole thing rolled up and tied with ties, and I put a wee pocket on the outside as well.

I think I might make another one for me to take to Disneyland next year; maybe a bit bigger so I can fit my brush in there as well. You could add press-studs on one of the fatter pockets to close it, to keep elastics safe.

I've also considered doing a wall-hangy thing for the bathroom, with similar pockets and straps and such. Maybe I could combine the two - no reason the holder wouldn't hang up as well as roll up!

DD did something cute the other day. She put most of her hair clippies on her My LIttle Ponies. I lined them up on her dresser.

What I Like

Me and our two girls both have long hair.

I like to keep hair elastics on a ring that can open and close. You can see all of the elastics (their colour and size) and you just have to rotate the spot where the ring opens to the location of the elastic you want.

I found that putting the elastics over something like a bottle or a tube stretched the smaller ones, and it was a pain to get them off if you wanted one that wasn't close to either end.

I hate digging in baskets, especially if I'm looking for two barrettes that match.

For barrettes and clips hanging up some long ribbons and clipping the barrettes and things onto them was what worked for us too. Then you can see all of the clips at once.
