This Monday, Ellen from The Long Thread re-posted her tutorial for reversible cloth headbands. When she first posted, I wanted to make some, but promptly forgot amid all the other projects I had going at the time. This was a good reminder, so I decided to put one together. Unfortunately, I forgot to print out the instructions, and when I got home I was too lazy to go all the way back to the place that I have access to the internet and a printer. I decided to go ahead and make this anyways…I did manage to read the instructions before I left so I had an idea of what I had to do.
Instead of using elastic I used a grosgrain ribbon to tie the headband, and the shape of mine is a little different. For one side of the headband I embroidered three little flowers similar to the print of the other fabric I was using.
I have to say, I have already used this headband twice (and it has only been completed for 2 days). I could seriously make one to go with each of my outfits and I would be a happy girl. These headbands are a must have for days when you don’t quite feel like going through the huge process of washing, drying, and straightening the hair…which happens to be most days for me!
