So…I’m growing out the crop 🙁 After a few dozen not-so-subtle wistful comments about how much he missed my long hair, the hubs convinced me to grow it out. I’m thinking of it as a temporary hiatus from the crop. The way I figure it, I’ll be rockin’ the crop from 35 until my expiration date, so I may as well give him a few good years of long-ish hair. Men. Anyway, to battle the crazy thatch on my head while it grows out, I’m slicking it back with some fat fabric headbands. And of course, they’re all reversible so I can get double mileage out of these babies!
They’re made from fabric scraps and a small bit of elastic. I find that the metal headband inserts give me a major headache from pressing against those bones behind my ears. Anybody else have that problem? And skinny elastic headbands just slide off my extra-round skull. So I came up with a pattern to make these chunkier versions that have no problem staying in place! Oh, and don’t mind my photo bomber. She decided throwing headbands was way more fun that taking photos of them.
Oh, did I mention my little munchkin turns ONE today?! She sure does! I’ll be back later with a fun birthday update for sure.
What can I say, girl likes to make a mess!
Silly goose. Anyway, on to the tutorial!
