Easy and Inexpensive Headbands

Mattie and I saw some super cute headbands at a boutique not long ago.  When we checked the price, we thought we could make about ten just-as-cute headbands for the same price.


Yep, we were right.


We bought some quilt fabric bundles at Wal-Mart that had about 5 coordinating fabrics cut into probably 1/4 yards each, bundled together to make quilt squares.  I think each bundle was about $3.


Then Mattie cut the various fabrics into strips, folded the edges under, and sewed a hem around the edges of the fabric strips.  (You could also just use that sticky iron-on hemming stuff if you don’t sew.)


Then you just tie the finished fabric strip around your head.


Voila, a totally cute headband for less than $1!

Mattie got all crafty and started finding various fabric flower patterns online.  She used various strips of leftover fabrics to create all kinds of cute flowers to accent the headbands, or wear separately.


My mom had gobs of costume jewelry, so Mattie has been choosing some of her favorite pieces from her Nana and placing them in the center of the flowers.  So cute!
