So if I make a hat or bow, put it on my daughters head, it is now USED since she has worn it...Can I sell that without testing?

I suppose BUT in the fourth paragraph of the same link above it says this "However, resellers cannot sell children’s products that exceed the lead limit and therefore should avoid products that are likely to have lead content, unless they have testing or other information to indicate the products being sold have less than the new limit. Those resellers that do sell products in violation of the new limits could face civil and/or criminal penalties"

Yes, resellers aren't required to test but cannot sell items that exceed the lead limit of the new law or they face the same penalties. How are you supposed to know unless you test??
