Introducing… Ragamuffin Crafts

Hair bows by Ragamuffin CraftsA friend pointed me in the direction of a Facebook post by Ragamuffin Crafts recently as bloggers were required for reviewing hair accessories and, well, I have both a blog and hair so was deemed fully qualified for the job. After poking around on the page for a bit, I discovered that Ragamuffin Crafts is the current outlet for the creativity of artist Rachael Howe. She is selling fascinators, hair clips and pins on Etsy and this is what she says about her crafts:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Rachael began to draw. This is what happened next. Always interested in the quirkier things in life, I began making things when I was very young. After many years and thousands of cups of tea (for inspirational purposes) I finally discovered that the scribbles I made could be used for more than just paper things. I began to sculpt, to build, to paint and turn people into monsters. From there I’ve gradually progressed to upcycling clothing with custom prints and creating dazzling fascinators, suitable for day-wear, photo shoots and weddings.

Hair bows by Ragamuffin CraftsI looked through what was currently on sale and spotted that Rachael had hair bows and also clips with an octopus charm on… which looked like it would go rather nicely with a necklace that I bought while on holiday. I mentioned this to Rachael and she offered to make something for me to review. When my parcel arrived, it was lovingly wrapped and inside were two pretty hair bows. One was made from a wide, vibrant teal coloured coarse ribbon printed with purple flock and pink glitter filigree swirls, while the other was made from cream coloured ribbon and featured the octopus charm.

Both looked great in my hair (see photo above – please excuse my roots!), but I found the French barrette style clip on the teal bow to be far more secure in my hair than the small crocodile clip on the cream bow. As a result, I think I could only wear the octopus bow as decoration on a hairstyle that is already secured with spray and pins. If I commission more, I will definitely be requesting the larger more secure clip as it can actually be used to secure my hair on its own. If you fancy one of your own, these bows are currently selling for a mere 3.50! You can find Ragamuffin Crafts on Etsy and Facebook.

DISCLOSURE: I was sent two hair bows free to review by Ragamuffin Crafts.
