I haven't sewn anything in about 13 years. I was inspired to make my own when I fell in love with an African print headband at Free People selling for 20+ dollars.  Huh So I cut off a strip of my favorite fabric, broke out my 3 dollar sewing kit, and this is what I came up with:

My camera doesn't capture great pictures at night so sorry about the blur.  Tongue

Those are great, I wish I had those sewing skills. I hate sewing by hand (which is what I'm assuming you did) so props to you! The fabrics are great, and the head bands are wonderful... I've been looking at the past post of these and I really want to make some.

Thanks a lot Smiley

I saw a post that made the elastics out of hairbands... genius. Surprisingly, I didn't mind sewing it by hand. It was kinda peaceful.

Screw paying 20 bucks for something that probably doesn't even look this good!

You did an awesome job!
