Ok-I had to use that as a title.
The pants I used weren't really on the ground,
8 had a birthday party on Saturday.
This was her third one in a week.
I was not going to spend any more money on birthday gifts.
So-I made them.
Now, this is not anything new for me-I make birthday gifts all the time.
My supplies were a little um....
I was doing laundry the other day (my least favorite thing to do)
and went to put a pair of leggings that had a whole in them in the trash.
I thought to myself-
Self..don't throw those away-you can use the fabric.
Yes-I talk to myself often.
Whatever...doesn't everyone do that?
I threw them in my fabric stash and forgot about them.
So...Saturday I was quickly trying to make a gift and thought...
Use the leggings for a headband.
Again-I was talking to myself.
I got to cutting. I took these...
and cut them up.
first like this...
Now, let me remind you-I don't sew. AT ALL
So the hot glue was the tool of choice.
I made some rosettes with fabric, ribbon and buttons.
I added some more rosettes that I made out of scraps of fabric
I also used some buttons to "funk" it up a bit.
I just hot glued everything on.
Are you a little confused on how this is a headband?
You just tie it around your head.
The knit fabrics works great for these because they stay in your hair without pulling, slipping or sliding out of place.
I LOVE how it turned out.
So did 8-she wanted to keep it.
It was the favorite present at the party.
Gotta love it!!
Keeping it Simple
It's so very Cheri
