"crawlers" revisited thanks Katy

got this e-mail from Katy thanks for your pictures these look great.

She said...I just First, can I say a big thank you!!! Even though my little girl has dark hair, she was still a baldy until close to her first birthday. I've looked at hair blogs before, but quickly became discouraged because she really still doesn't have much hair. Since I've learned the "crawlers" I can do so many things with her hair even though it's still pretty short. I know you did a similar post a few months back with the "shoe string" hair style. If you don't want to post this, I'm not at all offended, but thought it may be worth your reader's interest. I've included some pictures of the finished product. I'm sure just by looking at it you'll know what I did. Instead of doing the shoestrings on the top of her head, I started at the back and bottom, then finished it off with messy piggies.

Thanks again for such a helpful blog!

Bound-Up Puffy Braid

Another one from Evelyn!
I didn't take step-by-step pictures because it's really simple and pretty self-explanitory, once you look at the picture.

I just did a puffy braid down the middle of my daughter's head, then, since she's got lots of little flyaways, I did a section on each side of the middle and criss-crossed them over the single section. I had two "x"s, but the second set is covered up by the bows. Oh, yeah, and after the second 'x', I just pulled the middle one in half, one for each side to make pigtails.
