Since the arrival of my little girl, I am all about creating accessories for her. While she was blessed with a full head of hair, I’d love to add “pretties” to dress her up, however her hair is so fine and slippery that nothing (including headbands) stay on her head or in her hair. But that doesn’t mean I won’t try…
In celebration of her 1 moth birthday I thought I’d try something fun. I used my husband’s white t-shirt to make this little headband.
Using a sleeve from a white t-shirt, I cut 5 strips then pulled on them to make the edges roll.
Initially I planned to just braid it, but it seemed to thin and boring.
Then I found a tutorial for a 5 stranded braid, which was more of what I was looking for. Since Ashley from Make-it & Love-it has a fabulous tutorial on a 5-stranded t-shirt braid, you can go there for the complete tutorial.
After completing the braid, I simply sewed the ends together and glued (e-6000) on a fabric flower (recycled from gift wrap). I think she looks pretty darn cute with the little accessory.
