Scrap busting: headband

I have a huge box of scraps. And three bags of smaller scraps. So any project that helps me use them up makes me happy. One of these days I'll make some pillows and stuff them full of scraps and feel a huge sense of accomplishment. But for now, I'm happy to do little projects like this one: 5 Strand Headband.

I love this blog (Make It and Love It) and can't say enough about her sewing tutorials. They taught me a lot when I was first starting out.

I found this headband very easy to make following the directions. I used some leftover purple two sided knit from Girl Charlee. It has two tones of stripes on one side, and is solid on the other side. I used it to make a dress last summer and it was a total disaster (another adventure without a pattern). The fabric is pretty thick as far as jersey goes. Since it's two sided, it doesn't look quite as pretty as the headbands in Make It and Love It's tutorial. If/When I make another one, I won't use a stripe.

AB hates stuff on her head, which is unfortunate since her hair is growing like crazy and is always in her eyes. When I get a chance, I'll probably use this headband for a dress as shown in this tutorial. Gotta love clothes without closures!

"Get this off my head!"
