Pinterest Pick

on May 5, 2012

For this weeks pinterest pick I chose to make a headband. Last night I was at the computer watching Grey’s Anatomy on hulu so I wanted to make something I could do while sitting there with headphones on, that meant minimal movement. So, I browsed pinterest and found this cute headband:

Cute, right? Mine didn’t turn out as cute as this. I have an old purple shirt that I LOVED but it got some holes in it so I decided to use that. I cut off 2 pieces from the bottom. In the blog post explaining how to do it she says to cut from under the arm, but that you can use the bottom too, so I did the latter. I wish I would’ve done it differently. It didn’t turn out as cute since it had the bulky hem in it.

I’m not a very straight cutter so they were really jaggedy. I’m saving up my money for one of those slice cutters and a cutting mat. I’m close to getting it! Can’t wait!:)

Here’s the headband after I finished tying it in the little knot to make it pretty:)

Here’s a close up.

And here I am wearing it today! What do you think?:) It’s not perfect, but it works. I think I’ll try it again with a different shirt. This one wasn’t rolled up like the one in the tut was. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s too worn out?

And here’s the close up in my hair.

It was fun to branch out and make something different! What have you done recently that you’ve also pinned?
