Wednesday evening was spent making a special headband per my 4yr old DD's request. She wanted a headband like mommy's. I took that request to mean that I could make any kind of fancy headband I wanted. I had been meaning to make her one of these anyway...so what better time than when she wants something totally different!?
I chose this fabric because, believe it or not, it's pretty neutral. It goes really well with almost everything in her wardrobe. Pink, green, navy, white, blue, red, spaghetti sauce, chocolate sauce, au natural... you get the picture. Plus, it's just cute fabric!
I used brads for the centers. I couldn't decide if I wanted something in the center of the two small rosettes, hence the one above with and the other without, hence I am too lazy to take a new pic of them both with, hence you get to see my laziness, hence...I'm all outta hence's.
I love the frayed look to these! I think it looks very beachy and summery. I was going to cover the headband, but she said "Nuh-Uh! I like it pink!" Fine, fine...it's the least I could do.
Now she wants more, in other colors. She has been into my fabric stash and has pulled out SEVERAL pieces. I asked her which one she wanted and she said "All of them!"
So I promised her I would teach HER how to make them! Folks, these are so easy, a 4yr old can do them!
I mentioned a tutorial, didn't I? Why yes, yes I did. But you don't get it until tomorrow. Cuz I'm lazy remember! I didn't edit the pics...so you'll just have to wait.
