Cute colours. I guess from the stay in place bit, that you put the velvet next to your hair?

That's correct!  It works really well, too.  I played with it a little bit before sending it off.  It does hold really well.  Headbands are always slipping off my head.

Those are great, I love the colours you chose, they're kind of ghostly
They do have an otherworldly feel to them.  My partner's school colors are purple, black and white.  Not sure if she would actually wear these to school, but the colors were fun!

I used to make these to sell at the Renn Faire.  Nicely done!
Oooo, selling 'em, huh?  That's cool!

Thanks!
2385  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Chunky Yarn Hair Falls on: August 17, 2011 11:07:13 PM
I recently just finished up the Hair Accessories Swap, and my last partner had on her wish list a set of hair falls.  I had no clue what she was talking about.  Hair falls?  I had never heard of it before.  After some craftster investigation I figured out I could probably whip of a set of these.

I got two skeins of chunky yarn.  The black/white one is Jo-Ann Sensations It's A Wrap Yarn, and I unfortunately don't remember what the purple one was called, but that it was a wool roving yarn.  I looped them around elastic in groups.







It reminds me of faerie hair! 

Thanks for looking!

I was determined to make my Hair Accessories Swap partner a headband of some sort, and decided to take a step out of my comfort zone and try my hand at sewing.  I have a sewing machine that I like to fight with, only because we don't know each other well.  I found a wonderful tutorial online on how to make Sweaty Band headbands.  They are wonderfully easy to make.  You need wide ribbon (mine was 1 1/2"), velvet ribbon, and elastic.  That's it!  Bam, boom, and you have a headband that stays in place! 

Here is the tutorial:  http://holy-craft.blogspot.com/2011/07/sweaty-bands-knock-off-revisted.html


Here's what mine turned out to be.  I see a future filled with these wonderful "stay in place" headbands, since they were so easy to make!

Yes yes, you haven't heard the last from me on freezer paper stenciling!  This time I did a design on a bandanna for my partner in the Hair Accessories Swap to go with her hair falls.  I found the image online somewhere. 

Here are the progress shots:


Here is the stencil all cutout and ironed onto the bandanna.  I've started applying the white paint with a foundation sponge.


The white paint is all on!


Peek-a-boo!


The finished design.



Thanks for looking!

Ditto!  I'm pretty proud of what I made for my second partner, so I think I'll post the pictures I took before I sent it off tonight if she hasn't done so by then.
