bad hair day

Whether it's a bad hair day or cute headband day there is a super easy pattern at Heather Bailey's blog to make a headband of your own.
I bought a bunch of fabric to make headbands for me and my sis-in-laws for our family vacation last summer. And here I am finally getting around to it. The great thing is that they are easy to make. All you need is an 1/8 of a yard of fabric and 4-5 inches of 1/2" elastic. Then add some buttons, throw your hair up and you are good to go:)!

Ooooh cute! Gotta go try it!

Love it! I may have to make a few of my own. I especially could use one today with the weather being so rainy in Indiana. It might be just the cheery, colorful pick-me-up I need.

Stephanie said...

Too bad these things always slip off my uber fine hair.

I have been looking for a pattern like this! Thanks!! My sister has a pattern just for little girls that she puts velco on the inside of them to help them stay on her daughters hair. I am just too big of a blonde to figure it out to fit on my big head. I'm excited. I'm coming down in a couple of weeks, so mark your calendar!!

Ingunn said...

You inspired me! I totally wore a funky headband today.

Rock On Sista!

Kris said...

Adorable, Elizabeth! I'll hafta go check out that pattern :D My hunny is not a headband fan, but if I leave some hair in front like you did, perhaps I'll get a thumbs up!

Random question...you take great pictures. What type of camera do you have? And what settings do you use the most. Your pics always turn out so great, I'd love any help you can give!! Thanks! Oh and thanks for the headband link too! :0)

Ditto about the above comment re. your photographs. Do you take them yourself? How do you get the lighting so nice? And if I take pics of myself, I have a hard time knowing where to place the camera so I get the right parts of me! I think a post on your photography would be great!

Thanks!

Jessica said...

Awesome, love the headband pattern, thanks! I only wish the fabric store was closer, it's 40 mins away.

I spent the evening trying to use my sister's sewing machine. I think I was not meant to sew.

PS I find it hard to believe that you EVER have a bad hair day.
