Thanks to jamiewatchthestars and her tutorial (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178442.0) I made a few headbands! Out of plastic bags!
(Sorry the pictures are a bit large.....)
First one I made:

(It's not done yet... And I think it is a bit on the wide side... Haha)

This one has flowers on it! (I cut the flowers out of different bags and put a piece of white bag over that. And then ironed away.)

Still not wearable yet.... The flowers came out nice though...

But then I made this one:

This one has a layer of white over the color as well, but this one is actually done! I glued it on to a plastic headband I already had using hot glue.
And an 'action' shot!

I really like the way this one came out. I need to get a few more headbands to finish the other ones, but I couldn't handle not posting them!

I also made another one, but I got iron happy and melted the bag so much it is way too small for a headband! So I made a wristband!

I used velcro as a closure. I don't know how much I'll wear it. Because it kind of blends in with my skin and makes it just look like I have a weird checked fungus... Or something. And that is why there is no action shot for it... Hahaha.

Well, I think I found my new obsession of the moment! I think a lot of my friends are going to get headband presents for a while!

Thank you for looking! Comments are well appreciated!  Cheesy

Very cute!  The checked fungus comment made me laugh, too.  Although, I'm sure they sell creams for that at the drugstore.
