I posted this first in the wrong section and now I think I have it right...

     Since St. Patrick's Day is Saturday and I am Irish (really really I am) I have been busy making up a little something for Miss Calliope (my bf's daughter) to wear to school on Friday. Since I know that her wearing a big green leprechaun hat is disruptive to the learning environment, plus it is sort of a toy, I opted to make a shamrock headband. Here is where I got the free pattern for the headbands, of which I plan on making many many headbands out of the fabric scraps I have been hoarding.



ok - here are the pics

I stitched on this felt shamrock by hand.

and here is the back of the vest!

Calliope and Dave = just waking up and too tired for pictures

here is the back view fo the headband - you can kinda see that I didn't do just like the picture & I kinda messed up and made it too big - so what! it still looks good Smiley

Side view - bobby pin are there because I made the band too wide, otherwise you would not need any bobby pins. The headband stays perfectly in place, no sliding.

See the white elastic being covered by the green shamrock fabric tie? that is what make this an awsome pattern.

And Calliope was pretty thrilled about being able to celebrate St. Patrick's Day as much as I am, seeing as how the both of us are Irish!
