Wow! Where have I been??
Ive been finishing up one of the hardest semesters since I started school. I had to make a portfolio of all of my work which took me about 160 hours just to assemble the books. And of course I procrastinated and did all 160 hours back to back. It was about 10 days of NOTHING but portfolio.
But I'm done!! and I was accepted into my program! Yay! There were 35 people who submitted and 22 made it in. So I'm pretty proud of myself :D Then we did a gallery showing of our stuff. Lots of Crazy-busy-ness. (Yea that's a word.)
But now I'm BACK! And I have lots of fun projects building up to show you. So lets get started, yea?
First up: Super easy Head wrap....That doubles as a belt!
I have this lovely little sundress that I love but I have no jewelery or anything to go with it. So while I was waiting for my roommate to finish getting ready for our outing, I made a headwrap. Headbands give me a huge headache almost instantly. Thats why I like head wraps because I can make them tighter or looser.
First step is to find some fabric you like and cut out 2 long skinny rectangles. I made mine a little fatter in the middle and skinnier on the ends. (could have sworn I took a photo of this)
Then sew them inside out leaving a little space so you can flip it right side out.
Now flip it right side out
Pin up the hole that was left
If you are fancy, get out your iron and press.
If you are sorty fancy, use your hair straightener (that was already sitting on the counter).
If you are not fancy, skip this step :)
Then sew a top stitch around the whole thing.
Then you are all done!
And if you leave it long enough you can also use it as a belt!
And it seriously took me like less than 5 minutes.
