How do you like your gummies?

These sweet sparkly gummy bears are looking for a new home with YOU! But I’ve sort of been hemming and hawing over exactly what to do with them, and wondering how people would prefer to wear the the gummy the most.

I know that everyone has different preferences, but it would be interesting to see if there were any kind of consensus or majority opinion?

I could do:
brooches
hair clips (but not the combo, because the combo hardware is too big and bulky)
or
mount 1,2, or 3 bears on a headband.
The other thing I thought of was hanging them on a ball-chain necklace.

Any thoughts?

I personally use hair clips more than pins, but I think they make for awfully cute brooches….

Oh, p.s. they are about 2 inches tall :). Ok now that I am looking at a photo, maybe more like 3 inches tall, with some slight size variance in different colors due to the slight variances in yarn weights.

    Barnicles

      Oh they are bigger than actual size! They are about 2 inches tall :)

      • barny says:

        Aha, i meant actual size in the photo. not thinking straight!

        I guess these are already made but imagine if you did a daddy gummy bear, a mummy gummy bear and a baby gummy bear? and i expect credit haha

        I think keyrings would rawk too

  2. Briana says:

    What is their actual size? I love them!!! <3

  3. Yasmine says:

    I thought gummy bear rings would look so cute, but if they are 5cm long.

    Phone charms……..but you can’t wear them!

    Dangly Earrings!! I made some googly-eyed ghost dangly earrings for halloween and they were about the same size (2 inches) and they were fine.

    That’s all I could come up with right now, but I’ll post again if I think of anything else.

    I say hair clips! I think that would be adorable

  5. Nicole says:

    Headband , pin, or you could make a garland candy scarf, kind of like your radish scarf (I would soo wear that!)

    • TwinkieChan says:

      I am actually working on translating this into a 2 dimensional form to make a scarf out of….. bigger gummy bears :)

  6. Amoxelle says:

    I would love to hang a pair or one from my car’s mirror or as the pull tab for my fan. If it’s a necklace I have to use leather or rubber necklaces since I have a pretty bad allergy to metals outside of a few types. (I say this and I love making jewelry with different types of metal)

  7. Erin P says:

    Personally I’d like to have a brooch — or maybe a zipper pull! Zipper pull woukd be super cute!!

  8. Ellie says:

    I think a hairband would be so cute!!!!! :) I would totally wear that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!

  9. Naomi says:

    put them on the ends of scarves! maybe a candy button scarf? that would be SWEET!

    or make a rainbow airheads extreme scarf with those gummies at the ends or dispersed throughout it YOW i would LOVE that!!

    i better see a pattern for these gummies in your new book! ;) (hint, hint!)

  10. claire says:

    They look so cute all together!
    I think they’d be really good as brooches
    But that Headband you described sounds amazing!

  11. ANGELA says:

    i’d stitch them top to tail to form a rainbow scarf, i already have 2 reqeuest for them if i find a way to do it!

    • TwinkieChan says:

      I think their size and 3D-ness make them a bit weird to wear as a scarf (my personal opinion!) but I plan to translate the idea for a scarf soon (more 2 dimensional bear shapes and larger sizes).

      • ANGELA says:

        regardless of their bulkiness, there is probably enough die-hard gummi bear freaks out there to make it work – i have one for an employee! either that i was thinking a lanyard would be a lot of fun considering there are quite a few businesses that have security badges people have to wear all the time. attach the lanyard at the top and the tag hook in the bottom – super cute.

  12. Gabby says:

    Hi twinkie! OMG SO STINKIN CUTE! sorry I haven’t had ANY time to work on the designs, i’m either at school, doing homework, or doing sports. I think all of it would be absolutely adorable, but I would be interested in the necklace and the headband! :)

  13. Erin P says:

    Showed them to my 14 year old daughter — she says she wants them just as they are, no pins, no clips. They’d look adorable in her room. :)

    • TwinkieChan says:

      I think they kinda just look cute hanging around, too, but my whole spiel has always been that I wanted to take the cuteness of plush toys and apply them to useful items!

  14. Tamz says:

    I’d love to see these on a headband! I’d wear them. God I wish you could make them into slippers..

  15. Rini Sapphire says:

    These guys are so cute – you’ve done a wonderful job :)

    I personally like the necklace idea, but in general I’m looking forward to seeing whatever your creative mind comes up with ^_^

  16. Jessica says:

    have you ever thought of glueing them on hair ties? it would be cute to put over buns and stuff.

    • TwinkieChan says:

      I like that idea. I’d probably sew them. But I’d also worry they’d get a little mangled in the process of getting put in a ponytail!

  17. Hope says:

    Are you still going to post the pattern for these as promised in your original Bon Bon post in August? I would love to make some for stocking stuffers :)
    “I’ll post the pattern if LB doesn’t end up choosing it, so you guys will get the pattern regardless . Stay tuned!”

  18. Vanezza V says:

    Earmuffs! @(・●・)@

  19. Meescha says:

    I would rock that headband like no tomorrow :) Sign me up for 3 of them off the bat!

  20. Amy Bryan says:

    I have not read the previous comments, but thought about a belt?

  21. Austine Frewin says:

    I’d have a bowl full on the table for little children to play with!! they’re adorable!

  22. Kaila frazer says:

    How much would you charge for a whole heap of loose ones? I reckon they’d be awesome kids toys as is.

    • TwinkieChan says:

      I am not sure yet. They may take an hour or two of work each. My goal has always been to take the cuteness of crochet toys and apply them to useable and wearable items, so I always kind of have this weird mental roadblock about selling toys hehheh.

  23. Dee says:

    I NEED one to sit by my computer everyday at work!!!! Are you going to share the pattern some day?

    • TwinkieChan says:

      Yes, definitely. It’s actually going to be posted somewhere else, so I’m waiting on them to post so I can direct you guys :)

  24. Amy says:

    OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD *hopping around in circles*
    My brain has just been blown away by cuteness. I’d love to see one just by itself, like a figurine type thing, or maybe as a keychain? Or you know…just ordering a whole box of them and diving in!!! :D

  25. Belen says:

    some sort of lariat/thing for the neck would be great. I’m a hair clip person (known for stabbing toys with clips and putting them in my hair) so hair clips would be my choice….but i bet headbands would actually be cuter

  26. Lee says:

    Of course you’ll have to give me one!

  27. Amie says:

    Ohmygosh it all sounds wonderful! I neeeeed a necklace and headband! how cute would a larger gummy bear teddy be?! You should sell sets of 6 in little egg boxes :D keep up the good work <3

  28. I love the slipper idea! I think they would rock as any sort of hair accessory. I would love to hang one from my rearview. They look aweseom all together like that – maybe you could just put them in a big antique candy jar – tie a ribbon around it and sell it that way :D

  29. Yasmine says:

    ‘Packets’ of mini gummi bear hairclips, (2 or 3 in a packet)??

  30. EMi says:

    I NEED, not want, NEED a gummy bear hair clip!
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come out with one soon! <3

  31. Beth K says:

    Love these so much. Probably too late but a candy garland or ornaments for the Xmas tree would be a tome appropriate application :-)

  32. Anne Bolger says:

    I would suggest that you secure them around dowels of a cot, not on every dowel, and the baby could slide them up and down. I also think they would look great on an indoor window sill, in colours that tone with the room colour scheme.

    Je le voie bien en porte clef

  34. Susanne says:

    Oh, what tiny little dearies. Lovely idea, and what a work! I would love to have a whole family, and I think they would be great as earrings.

  35. Emily says:

    Oh My Gosh!! I need the pattern! They are so cute!!

  36. Vchan says:

    Hi, I was wondering if I could buy the pattern from you .. my cousin is graduating and he LOVES gummie bears. I wanted to make him something homemade .. this would be PERFECT :)

    tHanKs!!
