I know a couple of cute little girls who need some of these fun reversible headbands!
When creating these little hair necessitites, I revisited some of my favorite fabrics - what a fantastic way to utilize some fabric scraps!
My friend over at Two Pockets was so sweet to send me this *handwritten!* tutorial in the mail after I inquired about the darling headbands she had made for her daughter and her daughter's friend. Not only did I love receiving this little surprise in the mail, but I also found her tutorial to be very well-written!
What excites me most about these headbands is that they are the perfect shape for a toddler's/preschooler's head - the band width in the middle is just right (if it was any wider, it would stick out like a little wing towards the back of the head).
I am lacking female models around here, but Charlie and his friend (also Charlie!) were each happy to sport a girlie headband in exchange for a piece of orange Pez.
I plan on making headbands for myself using this tutorial - I believe the shape is perfect for my head, too. And, lately my hair has not been so perfect, especially on those hot days when I engage in hose battles with Charlie. I tell you, those little curly fly-away pieces of hair are not so cute once you hit your mid-thirties.
But, before I make any new hair accessories, I have a very exciting project to unveil to you! Stay tuned - it involves sewing CLOTHING (I am tentative, to say the least!).
