Craft Time! Ok, so remember whenI mentioned customizing a headband to match a dress (or an outfit) in the Holiday Hair post? Well, here’s mine. You like? Interesting enough, I made this about a year and 1/2 ago to match this adorable polkadot and stripped outfit that was given to my daughter as present. It consists of 3 different kinds of ribbon. I stitched each piece of the bow to the band building from the bottom layer up, glued on some “shimmies” from a previous art project, and stitched the ends of the band to black elastic. It’s hideous underneath, but hey, no one sees that anyway.
I was thrilled when I realized it matched my daughter’s Easter dress this year and whipped that bad boy out again for its (likely) final use. Stretched the elastic piece a little, and it was as fresh as the day I made it. So, you like? You should try it one day. Again a little glue and imagination… You can try hand-stitching/sewing later. It’s the memory that matters most.
