I must have a built-in "get ready for the hospital" sensor. Last night I made a batch of headbands to bring along to the hospital in hopes of avoiding several bad hair days (just two weeks to go!). I also made headbands when I was pregnant with Oscar, coincidentally two weeks before going into labor. Maybe it is part of my nesting instinct? :)
this tutorial by Rubyellen of Cakies (found on the Smile and Wave blog). My favorite is the single gold braid made using ribbon, with the double braided fabric band coming in at a close second. The black and white one is kind of "meh," but it will be serviceable. Also, I am not so good at the self portraits. It took me about 40 shots to get a decent angle on these three headbands.
While I was at it, I made two headbands for baby Ruby. Just some simple satin flowers on very soft, stretchy elastic.
Looking for a cute headband tutorial? Check out this great one by my former bookclub comrade, Heidi, who recently showed how to make zipper rosettes on UCreate. It is on my to-do list.
