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!
