First off, I'm not certain that this is the right board for these, but I couldn't figure out where else they should fit. If I have it wrong, please let me know. Thanks!

My long hair is starting to drive me crazy now that the weather's warming up, and it's been way too long since I've sewn anything, so I decided to sew up a bunch of headbands. Let me know what you think.

I love them. Really excellent work. Is the middle one a print or is it cotton scraps on a base fabric?
If you don't mind I would like to copy your method? I really like the way you did the elastic in a circle at the back, excellent idea and a great way to work though my scraps bag.

Love clothes!

Thanks! Feel free to copy it. I actually used hair rubber bands for the elastic. I used to make these with sewing elastic, but the stuff eventually loses all of its stretch. I figured that if these hold up better when I'm putting my hair in a ponytail, they should work for this, too.

Let me know how yours turn out!

i'm totally gonna make some of these for myself! the main change i'm gonna make, though, is i'm gonna use a velvety material for the inside, cause that keeps the headband from slipping back (i had one like that in high school). plus, then, you can reverse it to pretty velvet for a special evening out!

Those look very nice... good choice of fabrics, professional-looking sewing, etc.  I really like the fabric or stitching detail or whatever is going on with the second one, especially!  Smiley

Using the hairbands for elastic is so amazing.

That's a really clever idea, might just 'borrow' it! Wink And I have to agree with the previous posters, the choice of fabric is great and the sewing looks very professional.

Your rubberbands are GENIUS! I have the same hair problems and have been planning on make headbands with all my scraps and whast just thinking all the elastic I have looks really tacky. This is the prefect solution! You don't mind if I use it?
