Default Here's a doozy for ya!

Ok gals, here's the challenge:

My friend and her sister are going to race as a team in an upcoming bike race. Here's the email she sent me:

"Hi Amy, Kristine and I are thinking about competing in the San Diego Urban Dare bike race as "Sister Bling" in August. We had plastic flowers on our helmets, but I would love to add a little bling from Lil Pixie Bowtique. Free advertising! Can you make us a little bling that can be attached or wrapped around a bike helmet. Our color is baby blue."

I was thinking about those hydrangea petal hats that the babies are wearing these days that are super cute. I know someone sells the tutorial for them on here...I sent her a pic and she LOVED the idea...which is great. But now I have to make it happen. LOL. Do you think the hat would fit around a bike helmet though????

If I use a waffle beanie I think I'd have to get a pretty big waffle beanie, wouldn't you think? Unless they stretch quite a bit...I don't have any on hand...What do you gals think? Any ideas? TIA. XOXO Amy

Hmmm...don't think it would fit around a helmet - maybe you could sew 2 of them together? split the seam and re-sew? What about using a nylon stocking. That would really cover the entire helmet - and most likely woulldn't pop off.

I was thinking the nylon would work best too. You would have to use something similar to the size when making it, so your intended design isn't warped. Maybe you can use velcro dots around the bottom edge to make sure that it doesn't move. Good luck!

Make sure to post pictures when its all done...would love to see the final product!

I actually have a bike helmet cover for my DD that I got as a gift (someone ordered it from Gigi's Apparel). It is a light nylon with thin elastic around the bottom.

Is a nylon stocking like panty hose? Or something thicker? I'm thinking I would need something thicker than panty hose...

This is definetley more pantyhose material. It's very light, but, very stretchy.

Another thought - a swim cap for adults. Not the silicone kind, but the nylon spandex kind. A little thicker. I agree - you would have to put it around a bowl or something to do it - or borrow a helmet, and then it would hold that shape better. Post pics!!!!!

Maybe something using a toggle so that it could be tightened around the helmet.

Heather at Goosie Girl (she is on facebook and here plus she has her own website) sells a tutorial. I would send her an email and ask her how you could would do it. She is a doll and extremely helpful!
