You can look at this post as a bit of a follow up to my mentioning of my new-found obsession with hair accessories. I actually followed through for once and did a little DIY. A lace head wrap with a bow!
Since I am lacking a camera, I had to resort to my webcam camera. So, sorry for the poor quality in advance.
What I used:
- elastic band
- matching thread
I cut a small piece of the elastic band and measured out the length of the piece that i need since the lace wasn't already stretchy. I then sewed the ends of the lace to the elastic band piece. From there I simple made a small band of the lace to cover the sewing and middle where the elastic was located. The tight fit of the band allowed me to slip a piece of the lace which I had sewed together on the ends, to create the bow.
This is how it came out:
So there you go. :) I think I'm going to go make some other variations now. I like to think I'm not being too anti-productive since school hasn't started yet and still haven't been able to get a job.
Have a great day!
