quick craft: 20-minute headbands

Another quick project for the labor bag - headbands! I'm not usually much of a headband girl, but wanted something to hold my hair back at the hospital. I like these so much that I wore one to work today. :)

You can find the easy tutorial and pattern here at Savvy Seams.


The second go round only took me 20 minutes - super easy!

2 weeks to go ...


p.s. don't forget - the sock dog giveaway ends at midnight on Sunday!

Jill-
The headbands are super cute! Was wondering how well they stay without slipping back/off. And I also agree that if I could have only grew in the belly it would have been great, I unfortunantly had kankles for many many months

KimboSue said...

Cami said...

I've never commented on your blog before, but I've been enjoying it for a couple months. Just wanted to say--because I *know* a pregnant woman can't hear it enough--you look great, and you look happy. Good luck with that new baby when he comes!

Liz said...

You are so crafty and cute! I now have all sorts of ideas for my sonn-to-be-here baby. Like you, I am about ready to pop. Best of luck to you and thanks for all of the inspiration!

I was looking at your blog and scrolled through these pictures and my little 5 year old said, "she's pretty, she's pretty, she's pretty."

I have never had much luck with headbands staying on my head, but if you put fabric paint like on the non-slip socks on the "hair side" of the hedband it will give it just enough grip to not slide off of your head. Thanks and I am loving your crafty awesomeness!

What are the dimensions of the fabric for the headband? It doesn't say on the instructions. Thanks!
