Recycled Hair-bands

Here's a quick little recycled-clothing tip I discovered just the other day. 

Because of all the things I make with t-shirts (quilts, baby clothes...), I have a lot of spare t-shirt sleeves lying around.  I got the idea to cut these into 2" wide vertical strips.  Pull on them so the cut ends curl, and TA-DA!  You've got a perfect headband!  I love these because they keep hair out of my face, dress up a plain braid or pony-tail, but don't put pressure on my head or pull my hair like elastic ones do. 

So far I've made these sleeve-bands in hot pink, black, white, and red, and have worn one just about every day! :)  Eowyn always smiles at them in my hair, and wants one on her head, too.

Pic to come.

Hi- I'm stopping by as a Relevant attendee... :)

I smiled when I saw the name Eowyn as we were going to name our youngest that name. Alas, it didn't work out- as everyone kept saying "what is that again?" So instead we went with Layla Doll. :)

Oh well ... :) I can't wait to meet you at Relevant- we have a lot of interests in common!
