Hair garters were born.
I experimented with different fabrics and colours and found that I could make them up in sets of five in toning colours.
They look good in cottons or lace, silks or fleece.
They make excellent hair bands for ponytails and you can wrap one or two around a plait for a different look.
With the elastic encased in gentle fabric there are no tears at bedtime.
You can buy jarretieres from my Etsy shop - Love Betty - go on treat your hair.
