Chiffon and Ribbon Headband

Don't forget to check out my giveaway!


I stopped at good ol' Hobby Lobby today to see if there were any new clearance fabric (I swear I have a problem. I can't buy anything that is not marked down in some way.)

There are 2 Hobby Lobby's I go to - one near work, and one near home. The one near work has more/better fabric selection, which means more clearance fabric. However, the one near home always bundles the end of the rolls of special trim and lace in a zip lock bag and sells it for $3.00. So today, I picked up a couple clearance bin fabric odds and ends, and a bag of trim that had some really cute laces and trims in it. You'll see me using these items in future posts over the next couple weeks. Except for this long strand of sequins. I have no clue what to do with sequins!

So back to the craft of the day - I took a long piece of white ribbon I had, just made folds with it, and then glued it down to a headband. Then, I made a flower with chiffon. Okay - that flower was ALOT harder than it always looks like it should be. I saw one in the store and thought, I could do that! I can. It just takes forever! So anyway, after feeding this insanely long length of chiffon through the sewing machine and around and around a circle of felt (whew) I had the flower. Then, I glued it onto the headband for a sort of flapper/40's look. I loved how it looked on my daughter!



Have a great week!
