DIY HEADBAND

I'm not much of a girly girl now. I used to be when I was young but now I'm a minimalist. Dressing up just gets in the way when running around with the active kiddos. However recently, Noe kinda inherited my husband's hairstyle and has a boyish hairdo, so thought it might be nice to dress her up more girly but not super girlish because it's not my style. 

Remember those kiddo pants/leggings that I made? I still had leftover cloth so decided to make some headbands for Noe. And then I also used leftover ribbons collected from over the years to make some flowers. Trying to put the ribbon flowers together was a bit difficult, somehow I lack the girly power in me to do it, sheesh, and the tutorial I followed was meant for little girls. Then I sewed button studs onto the flowers and headband so that I could interchange the flowers.

Doesn't she look like one of the dancers in the movie 'Flashdance'? But alas, the cuteness moment is rather short-lived, after 2 hours, she pulled the headband off her head. Well, it was a good run and didn't cost anything to make since they were all recycled materials.  I shall attempt to wear another one for her on her birthday for some sweetness :)

Check out the tutorials for the ribbon flowers which older children can make,  I think it is great for teaching simple sewing and the simple headband which just takes 15 minutes to make.
