YES! I finally have time for crafts and hobbies again! Yay for school being finished!
So I've seen these oh-so-cute rolled headbands around and I REALLY wanted one for myself. So I made one :)
And I'm going to show you how I made it! First I cut a strip of felt about 12 inches long and about 1/2 an inch wide.
Then I folded it in half and pinned it all the way down. It wanted to curl up on me but that's ok since it's going to be rolled anyways.
Then I threaded a needle and tied the ends together. I made my first small roll and secured it with the thread. You have to kind of hold it tight or it will unroll on you. (Please ignore my horrible chipped nails!)
Continue rolling and securing as needed. Be sure to secure it well at the end.
Then I made 2 smaller ones using felt only 6 inches in length.
I cut some felt and glued it to the back to secure it better and cover the thread.
Then I cut a small strip of felt to secure the 3 pieces to.
I hot glued the rolled felt to the piece. I also trimmed any visible felt and put a little glue between the pieces. I like to be able to interchange my headband pieces (remember that post I did before?). So I glued loops on that would allow me to slip the piece on and off a headband.
Slipped it on a headband and VOILA! A felt headband :)
See how it attaches and can easily slide off?
A few headshots... *snicker*... get it... headshots... because it's pictures of my head. Yea, ok, maybe I'm the only one that finds it funny. I guess it's all in my HEAD! Ha. Haha. Nothing? Tough crowd :)
Well I hope everyone is having a great start of the week! My week will be filled to the MAX! I've got a Church Youth Workers' Christmas party on Monday. A haircut on Tuesday. Pinning Ceremony on Wednesday. Graduation on Thursday (and that's my mom's birthday!). Interview for the Neonatal ICU department on Friday. Going to see Christmas Lights on Saturday. Sleepover with some girls at my church on Sunday. Whew... what a week! Hope yours isn't as crazy packed as mine :)
