These bitty butterflies are perfect for fall and back-to-school. The subtle, lemonade color of yellow looks so cute with the white polka dots and contrasts beautifully with the dark grey of the charcoal centers and antennae! I created these bows to match the fall 2012 line from Naartjie (one of my favorite places to shop for my daughters!) I just love the yellow and grey together!

Small butterflies measure about 2 inches across and come attached to 1.75 inch alligator clips with slip resistant inner surface (you can request small snap clips for fine/baby hair in the instructions to seller). Most of my listings are for pairs because these butterflies look absolutely adorable on pigtails! Or sisters can split the pair and have one for each! :)

You can see the relative size of these butterflies on my adorable testers at right. The bright paisley butterflies on the model's pigtails are available here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/71923225/pair-of-small-butterfly-bows-in-bright

If you're interested in a single butterfly bow, please see this listing http://www.etsy.com/listing/57945547/single-bitty-butterfly-bow-u-pick-color for a create-your-own butterfly bow and then simply request this style. If you would like a headband and clip set in these colors, please see this listing for the Summer Love butterfly headband. http://www.etsy.com/listing/73276289/summer-love-butterfly-headband-fuchsia

Frequently asked questions about MyLittlePixies

Almost everything in my shop is made-to-order. I'm a stay-at-home mom myself, and find that this helps me balance my shop and family needs. You'll find processing times listed within each listing so you can gauge how long something will take to ship. Most items ship within about 3 to 5 business days. If you have a time constraint, please contact me before placing your order and I will try my best to accommodate. If you have a very tight timeline, please purchase "RUSH" processing as a shipping upgrade at checkout.
RUSH processing is available as an add-on to your order, here https://www.etsy.com/listing/192771093/rush-processing-must-be-added-to-your?ref=shop_home_active_2 or as a shipping upgrade at checkout. I recommend purchasing RUSH processing if you have a tight timeline (particularly if you need to receive your order within a week or less). Other upgrades available at checkout (like Priority Mail postage) may speed up the delivery of your order by a day or two and reducing the postal time, but RUSH processing is the best way to guarantee your order will be received as soon as possible.
I have an approximate headband sizing chart in each listing- but every baby's head will grow at a different rate, so some may need a larger size sooner than others. A good rule of thumb is that you want the headband size to be a little smaller than the head circumference, so that the headband will stretch a bit and stay on. Wider headbands have more "give" than skinny headbands, and will be less likely to leave a mark, even when they grow snug. I recommend choosing a bit more wiggle room for a skinny headband if you're concerned about a mark being left on baby's head. I can make custom sizes as well, so if you have a headband you know fits your baby well, I can match the diameter if you request it at checkout.
I do clip orientation from the perspective of the person wearing the clip. So if your child parts her hair on her left side and sweeps her bangs to her right side, you would want a right-sided clip- even though the clip will be on YOUR left side as you are looking at her. f you'd like an example of what this looks like I can send you a picture.
Generally, the slip-resistant alligator clips tend to be the best for most types of hair. I use a "slip-grip" surface on the inside of the clip to help it hold better in fine hair. A child needs enough hair to pull some to the side, or up into a teeny ponytail to be able to hold the alligator clips in. The baby snap clips are tiny little snap clips that work best when baby has just a little bit of wispy hair. I also like these clips for use with headbands as they are small enough to hide completely behind the flower or other decoration and can make a seamless attachment with the headband (the alligator clips do show a bit on the side when attached to headbands).
I am happy to ship gifts directly to the recipient. I will gladly gift wrap and include gift note free of charge- just request this in your instructions to seller! I never include pricing information in my shipments (unless asked to do so).
For the most part, I don't really do wholesale. I don't really have the time to support wholesale production, and I really enjoy working directly with individual clients, so I prefer to keep my focus on what really gives me joy. :)

Occasionally, I do have specials. These will always be announced on my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/mylittlepixies

I try to keep my items priced competitively and in a reasonable price range; so I don't typically discount, except at certain times of the year as a way of saying "thank you" to clients.
Yes! You can always add something to a pending order and not be charged for shipping. If you have a pending order that has not yet shipped and would like to add additional items to it, use the coupon code "combinedshipping" (all one word) to avoid additional shipping charges.
I frequently accommodate local pickups at my home. If you live in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area and would like to pick your order up instead of paying for shipping, please use the coupon code "localpickup" (all one word) and you won't be charged for shipping. I'll contact you with directions on how and when to pick up your order via Etsy convo.
