Hey guys, I find the bobby pin is so beautiful, I like it and want to make one by myself.

Do you guys know what the material is? Satin ribbon? Where to find it?  Thanks in advance.

Almost looks like a knit to me....hard to tell from a picture! But I'll bet you could do it out of most any kind of ribbon, found at hobby shops and fabric stores.

Got to thinking and MAYbe you don't want to use a slippery ribbon because the band might slide on your hair. Just a thought...but if you used a gripping kind of cord it might work. Always afterthoughts with me and they strike me in the wee small hours so I keep a pencil and paper by my bed!

Maybe, this weekend, I will go to some fabrics stores or may I can buy it at an accessory shop. Anyway, thanks a lot, Akamarti.
