In my quest to grow gray, I've been accumulating homemade hairbands to distract from the transition stage. I've delved into my fabric stash and came up with several beauties. Here are just a few.
The best ones are silk. Slinky knit fabrics work well, too. This one is silk organza.
This is one of my favorites. I haven't finished any edges. I just fold the fabric over to the desired width and tie in back.
This one is different, because I made it from some fancy trim that someone gave me. I finished the ends and sewed on snaps.
The hairbands are doing a pretty good job camoflaging, but the gray is coming in fast. I may have to jump to hats sooner than expected! I saw this one at Target. It's really cute, but it doesn't go with one thing in my whole wardrobe. Luckily, it was on sale for only $2.50.
So I guesstimated pattern pieces in this style. I'm in the process of cutting out pieces for my first hat now. Hope it works! I'll post photos when it's done.
