Who knew tailoring was so much fun?

I got my hair cut and now I can use/need some sort of hair accessory. I really like the headbands in stores, but I was in target and they were like $8. I also went to the "hair care" isle and still, the plain one were like $3. My boyfriend suggested I go to the dollar store. I did and bought two headbands, 1" wide and 2" wide. I had to deconstruct them to add my fabric and here is the 1" one. I don't have fabric for the second one yet. I want a gingham or check, something that will look cool all bias-y. 

As you can see I added the braid(?) along the inside that you find on some headbands. This one I think will be easier than the 2" wide one because as I was taking the fabric off of it it left a strip of sticky stuff on the inside. It reminded me of toupee tape or something...a double sided tape, rather than a glue, because after I took off the fabric it was still tacky. So this made it easier to shape the fabric around the headband, because it stayed in place. Then I used white glue for the rest of the construction. I know I probably should have used some other glue, but that is what I had. I usually don't put things together with glue.

If anyone has glue suggestions I would love to hear them!

Goodbye Tucson! I will miss how everything dried so quickly!
