Overboard

Today I wanted to sew a simple headband or two for a birthday present. Well, as usual I overdid it and couldn’t stop myself from making a bunch instead of just one or two. I blame the easy pattern and fabric stash-busting nature of the pattern.  I used this one: http://www.aliceandlois.com/diy-fabric-headband-tutorial-handmade-gift-series/

she made the goofy face on purpose!

 

Most have recipients in mind, some may go to “gift stash”

These are so fun, easy, and quick! I can see using lots of stash fabric up on these fun items!  I managed to make all 8 of these while taking care of my kids solo (that might not be a big deal to you, but the Wee Boy is the biggest handful you can possibly imagine, and then some), and they didn’t take that much time.   I know it would be a  bit more work, and the elastic is mostly covered by hair anyway, but I’m curious how much harder it would be to cover the elastic with some fabric.  Although, if I want to keep making these quickly, adding more steps probably isn’t the way to go.
