So to get back to my point of post, make your own stuff. That’s what I did. Here’s what you do, you brave your local fabric store – watch out for Joann’s Fabrics on a weekend, you’ll be there for 5 hours minimum – and you head over the to notions & trims aisle. You pick out about 18 inches or so of some pretty little trim you would like to have on your head. Then you grab some elastic banding of some sort. Then you proceed as follows. You can see the original tutorial from TBD here or just see what I did below. Please note that I do not make any claims to be a seamstress or have any sowing skills. I sow rough, really rough. But you know what, I don’t care. I live dangerously like that.
|Step 1: buy some pretty trims|
|Step 2: get out your sowing stuff|
|Step 3: measure around your head, then leave out about 3 inches for the elastic.|
Step 4: pin the trim to the elastic
|Step 5: sow it on! Any way you know how.|
|Step 6: admire your hard work!|
|Step 7: take requesite self-portrait modeling your new headband.|
Step 8: give them away to friends because you dont need 80 headbands and it's way more fun to give things away.
