About fancyfreefinery

Sales 25,710
On Etsy since 2014

Growing a business.

Fancy Free Finery started in my closet-sized "studio", if you could call it that, in my then boyfriend (now husband) and my first apartment. I have always explored creative media of one kind or another -- I have a degree in Arts Education, am an avid Pinterest explorer, and have a nervous habit of always needing something to do with my hands. One winter day, fighting boredom and seasonal depression, I tore into some leftover scraps of felt, created the first iteration of a felt flower headband, and the rest is history.

Fancy Free Finery has allowed me the flexibility and freedom to quit my preschool teaching job to stay home and tend to my family. I love being able to work in our home, watching my son Felix grow.

As a former preschool teacher, I have always been inspired by the carefree, playful spirit of a child, and have tried to find ways to carry that sense of wonder and open-ended freedom into my life as an entrepreneur. I am lifted up each day through the journey of motherhood, and I feel so privileged to be able to work alongside a village of confident, creative, and inspiring women, and the children they are raising, each day, both in person and through our social platforms.

My village includes a team of women across New England, who thoughtfully and carefully hand-craft each flower, made to be heirloom pieces to cherish as your little one grows.

We invite you to join our community + cultivate relationships with other women as our children grow by following along on our social platforms.

Additional policies and FAQs

-- What are your headbands made from? --
Our felt flowers, leaves, and headband bases are made from a wool-rayon blend felt (between 20-35% wool content) sourced from right here in New England, and made in the USA. Our needle-felted wool berry balls are made by hand by women in Nepal, India.

-- Small parts disclaimer: --
Please note all items listed in my shop are intended for use only with adult supervision. Many of our headbands and hair accessories, by nature, are small, and may be made of small parts. By making a purchase, you agree to assume any liability for the items purchased.

-- Where are your products made? --
Fancy Free Finery headquarters is in my home in Southern New Hampshire. I love being able to pop in to work during my son's naptimes or on weekends for some free time to myself. (Having a creative outlet is good for the soul!) All of our products are made by myself (Katie) and a team of local women seamstresses in the New England area. I love our weekly meetups and cherish their friendship and support. It truly takes a village.

-- What size should I order? --
Our single flower bands arrive on a one-size-fits-all nylon band and stretch to fit newborns through adult. For crown sizing, our suggested sizing chart is below, but for a truly custom fit, please measure your child's head circumference before placing your order. (This is often measured at well baby checkups, so you may be able to look at your child's latest doctor's visit information!)

newborns // 14" circumference
3-6 months // 15" circumference
6-12 months // 16" circumference
1 year and up // 17" circumference
for teens + adults // 18.5" circumference

Crowns arrive on skinny elastic (pixie crowns) or 5/8" thick foldover elastic (mini + full crowns.)

-- How do I care for my felt flower headband or crown? --
Do not wash! Spot clean only with warm water and a damp cloth. If flowers get crushed in transit or through daily wear and tear, gently smooth and reshape.

-- Do you offer discount codes or coupons? --
We occasionally offer discounts + promotions to our Instagram and Facebook followers. There is also a bundle code for single flower headbands within each listing!
