Crafty Quickie

My new favorite headband. I cut out a flower from the vintage bark cloth Elsie gave me and sandwiched a black headband between it and two pieces of orange felt. I just stitched around the edges, trimmed it and carefully arranged it on my curly little head. If only all crafting was so quick!

Make your own with a small doily, an embellished applique, or some pretty ribbon wrinkled up in pleats.

xoxo,
Rachel

I only wish I could get them to stay on my head. My hair is so soft and silky that any hairbands slip right off (or propel off my head like a sling shot). Even when I let my hair stay in its curly/wavy state it does the same thing.

Boo...guess I'll have to continue just loving headbands on other people. I really like all yours.
