Default Cancer fundraiser headband ideas?

My next door neighbor is a cancer survivor. She is on the board for Ovarian Cancer awareness and they are planning a walk in Sept. She asked me to come up with a few bow ideas as fundraisers for them. They would of course need to be headbands since not all cancer patients are going to have hair.

What kind of headband would you recommend for adults? Waffle crochet type? FOE? Toggle? They would like it to be interchangeable so people could buy different clips and bows to suit their style. Toggle might help hold on a wig for those wearing one.

I am thinking some big flowers and bows for those who might be more flamboyant and then some smaller more delicate bows for those who just want to feel pretty and girly.

Basically, I am going to do this at cost for them and let them make all they can for cancer research and treatment.

Any and all suggestions welcome!

I made this for a friend...it has a clip/brooch on the back so it can be worn in the hair or on clothing:

I lost my aunt to ovarian cancer and I have some really nice ovarian cancer awareness bottle caps. I'm not sure if you wanted to go that route at all, even doing some necklaces or key chains. Let me know if you are interested, I could send them to you at cost, I'm totally behind the cause!

Can you pm me a picture so I can show my neighbor? She is the one that would be buying them. I truly appreciate your support!

I'm still learning how to add photos, I can't figure out how to add them to a PM, but I made an album. Check the pictures link and it should be one of the newest albums.

I feel kind of dumb, but have looked everywhere and cannot find the picture. Can you post a link to it?

Thanks.

alopez- I love your work. I am going to show my neighbor and ask her what she thinks of these as necklaces and bow centers as a fundraiser.

Let me know what you would sell them for so I can tell her. She is on the board of the Ovarian Cancer group here and they have a meeting coming up. I'd love for her to be able to tell them about these!
