Alright people, after writing yesterday how I lost interest in crafting for a hot second, something happened and I got motivated! Ok, well not like super motivated, but enough so that I was able to put together this easy tutorial for you! Here we go.
Easy Headband Tutorial
- Measuring Tape
- Jersey Knit Material
- Basic Sewing Supplies
- Cut 1 – M” x 3″ Band (M= Measurement of your head minus 2 inches – this is where you use the measuring tape)
- Cut 1 – 3″ x 2″ Binding Strip
As you can see, I made quite a few headbands.
- Take your 3″ x 2″ binding strips, fold in half (right sides together) so that it is now 3″ x 1″, and sew in place.
- Trim the edge of the binding strip.
- Flip inside out.
Take your band and pull it through your binding strip.
Right sides together, set your band shut. Trim the edges.
Pull your binding strip over the band’s seam – and you’re done! Yay!
So you’re probably thinking to yourself – that was an easy tutorial, just like she said! But wait, what’s so awkward about it?
Well here you go folks, the most awkward self-portraits I have EVER taken. I feel awkward even posting this lol.
Alright, that one isn’t so bad, at least my tan looks good, haha.
Oh, yup, awkward.
I’m so not a model. And here’s the winner:
Why do I look like I’m in pain, haha. Well, you guys get the picture, lol.
Ahh, but guess what, the awkward pics aren’t over. Don’t worry, just a few more!
Like this necklace?
Ok I swear, that was the last one, haha. ANYWAYS! The next tutorial I do will show you had to make a necklace just like this one!
I’m going to try and harness some more of that motivation that I found yesterday and get you a tutorial tomorrow. So stay tuned!
Oh, and I wanted to let you guys in a little secret I’ve been keeping over here. Recently I’ve jumped onto the Atkins Diet bus, and I’m really liking it. But sometimes I really want carbs, like REALLY want them. So to keep me motivated I’ve started exploring new recipes and I figured, why not share them with you?! I’ll be sharing a new post every week – planning for Wednesday or Thursday – and I’m calling it (drumroll please!):
So excited to get cooking this evening! And don’t worry, I won’t disappoint, this first recipe is going to knock your carb loving socks off!
See you next time!
Oh and don’t forget about the Blueprint Blowout going on!
