I have been hanging on to the October Anthropologie catalog, loving all of the “Hot Mess Mommy” hair-do’s. I was thinking that I would get my hands on some beautiful fancy embroidered ribbon n such and try out a few headbands. Imagine my delight when Ruby from Cakies did a Braided Headband Tutorial as a guest post for Smile & Wave. Here is mine. I love it. Clare loves it too. It will even work on a baldy-bean baby!
I used Kleo By Alexander Henry and an unknown orange fabric gifted from Jaime.
Finally! Something for the bald children!
This is a great look for you jc
Oh my god I love this idea!! I cant wait to make one for me and mini-me!
Did you sew the matching fabric edge and patches onto Clare's top?? Very pretty and oh so saleable. I think it's time you set up at the Farmer's Market!!
This top is by one of my favorite indie designers, Random Nicole. She was doing the hand-made style way back before it was "in." I grab something of her's (for me or the kiddos) whenever I can. If you live in SoCal, she gives great deals at her craft shows. DIY is awesome but it's also pretty cool to support artists. : )
LOVE it! (Duh.) Perfect way to dress up a sleeped-in messy bun.
[…] After finishing up a couple more tag blankets, Shauna began braided together strips of fabric to make a necklace or headband or both. So muh fun! And the colours were so springy! Probably inspired by this. […]
