Heavenly Headbands!

Since I cut my bangs, I have been in need of a way to pull my hair back.
I also wanted lots of options and I wanted them to come cheap.
So, I decided to make my own.

I used The Long Thread's pattern, but made mine a little different than she did.
Here is my Reversible Heavenly Headband

You will need:
Pattern
Two scrap pieces of material twice the length of the pattern.
3/4 elastic
Fabric scissors
Sewing Machine
Iron

Photobucket
Place pattern on folded fabric.
Cut.
Photobucket
Repeat for other piece of fabric.
Photobucket
With right sides together, stitch around edge 1/4 inch, leaving both ends open.
Photobucket
Turn right side out.



Photobucket
Iron flat.
Photobucket
Turn raw edges under about 1/4 of an inch.
Photobucket
Slide in one end of elastic about 1/4 of an inch.
Stich in place.


Photobucket
Now here is the really scientific part.
Wrap the headband around your head and cut your elastic where it meets the other side.
Stick in about a 1/4 inch and stich in place.
Admire your work and clip strings.
Photobucket
Try it on and take cute pictures.
Photobucket
Then get to work making more!
I made all of these in about 45 minutes.

Let's open a sewing/monogramming shop...forget the "real world." I love ideas that use scrap material. I am going to try this tonight!
