Braided t-shirt headband

I'm into braids these days. Remember this braided t-shirt for Ry-pie? I've made a few other braided items that I've yet to share with you all. Sometime soon perhaps?

It's been awhile since I've shared any hair accessory ideas. I was inspired to make this headband from this tutorial for a lace headband. I made it using the same t-shirt I used for this. I really should have thrown this t-shirt out by now, but I'm a sucker for the color grey and I just couldn't seem to part with it...and I'm glad I didn't!

Here you go...

I made double braids, so I cut 6 1" pieces from my t-shirt that were 22" long.

Pin the ends together and anchor (I used my pants), and braid so you have two braided pieces.

Take a piece of elastic and place together with the braided pieces.

Sew across the elastic and the braids like shown.

Trim off the excess from the braids...

and you're done!

I'm thinking I'll make a single braided one for Ry-pie and maybe adorn it with a little pink flower detail for the both of us. It'll be the headband I rock in the hospital when "new baby" comes! I'll keep you posted. ps. She should be here next week!
