After our spontaneous dinner, the guys naturally retired to the living room to play video games. So, what did the crafty girls do? Clean the kitchen, of course. And put the wee one to bed. And finally, we got our craft on!
Ever since Sharon's last Linky Love post about using fabric scraps, we've both been wanting to make some funky headbands. Here's what we came up with:
Pretty awesome for un-planned crafting, huh?
We used a template and pattern offered by thelongthread.com. It was super-simple and oh-so-satisfying!
When making the headbands, we made sure to iron down the ends of the headbands up so that we had finished ends to insert our elastic into.
We both got pretty annoyed while ironing the pieces flat after turning the fabric tubes inside out. The seams just want to stay tucked in! Ughh.
It was worth the effort though, because we loved how the headbands came out. Aren't they awesome?
We're both kind of lazy seamstresses so we used grey thread for all of the headbands. Seriously. We didn't want to have to change out the thread and bobbin each time we made a different headband. Don't judge!
