10 minute headband

10 minute headband
Above are the photographs of how I made a 10 Minute Headband.  I found a great tutorial on how to make these, and they really are made in less than 10 minutes because I timed myself!  Here is the link to the great tutorial. http://bluebirdstudio.blogspot.com/2008/09/ten-minute-headband-tutorial.html The bluebirdstudio website also has some other great free tutorials, it is worth a visit to look at her other creations.

The material I used for this headband was the remnants from the denim dress that I made into a bag, which I featured in an earlier post.  Here is a link to that post. http://www.karimascrafts.com/2011/01/upcycling-dress-into-bag.html the small frill on the bottom of the dress is the material in question. There was just the exact amount of material leftover to make this headband.
 
I make lots of hairbands, in different styles, but I really do like this option.  You must make sure that you use good elastic hairbands, as some elastic hairbands lose their elastic very quickly.  This is a very easy sewing project, my 8 year old daughter is able to manage this project unaided.
