I have finally got around to taking some pics of the hairbands that I have been making which will be new kits in the store soon.
I use cotton towelling for the batting as I want them to be useful as cool bands in summer and towelling hold water well and is comfortable and not sweaty.
So far I have 4 variations of the pattern and I am thinking of offering kits for one and three headbands. Each kit will be one of a kind as I am using the strip left over from the fabrics once I have cut them into squares. These strips are between 1.5-2" and work wonderfully for hairbands. Plus I have a patchwork version using 2.5" squares.
The kits will include everything you need to make them including fabric, backing fabric, floss, thread, cotton toweling batting and elastic.
Once I have made up the pattern I will post a version of it for free on the blog as I intend to do for my cushions also.
|This one uses 3 strips of tye dye fabric and some fancy metalic floss.|
|This pic has all 3 that I have made so far.|
|This one has beads and lots of embroidery.|
|This is the first one that I made. In these pics, you can see how the elastic attaches|
|This pic shows ho I stitched in the backing fabric to "cover all the workings"|
I hope that you enjoy the headbands and look forward to seeing some as competition entries. They make great Christmas presents too.
