Fringe or no fringe… Hair bands

7 Aug


Number 1 is growing out her hair. We have had fringes before and grown our hair out before and Cut Our Own Hair ! ! before. So we have a bunch of hairbands to keep her tidy and smiley and deter any repeats of the haircutting episode. If I was not lazy they would all have matching thread… But No.1 was happy. And it was a good way to use up small pieces of cotton fabric left over from making her dresses and skirts.

To make a similar hairband for a 4-8 year old you need:
10cm piece of 0.5 inch wide elastic
Safety pin for threading elastic through
Fabric for gathered elastic piece at back of head = 21cm x 5cm
Fabric for front = 40cm x 10.5cm
Includes the seam allowance
