Li'l Bit and I picked up new large-hole star beads from a new beauty supply store near our home. I just couldn't wait to use them, so I decided to incorporate them into a style I was dying to try on The Princess. I gathered inspiration for this style after seeing this hairstyle on beadsbraidsbeyond.blogspot.com. I thought it was all too cute, and decided to put my own spin on it by crisscross cornrowing the entire head into a star-like pattern and adding my cool new star beads. Next time, I will actually part the star pattern into her head at the beginning and go from there; I freestlyed it this time and to me, it could look more like a star. :)
