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!

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

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

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.

I really like the idea of a no slip headband. HairClippy.com has a great line of non-slip comfy headbands.

I like the fact that it stays in place. Gotta make one. Looks easy enough...

I enjoy making my own beads from recycled materials. Also, designing with wire.
