I am so excited to finally own something I have wanted for a loooong time. You know how I have been doing other crafts besides making cards? Like sewing? Well, I finally splurged and bought myself a serger!
I have so many projects and things I want to make, I can hardly contain myself. And Joann's Daffodil Dash sale this month hasn't helped. Well, I guess it has helped me save some money, unless you don't count spending money to save money as saving.
Here she is...
And wait 'til you see what I just made with her...a Yoga Headband. I got a remnant of rayon/spandex for next to nothing, and made up my own pattern after studying a headband I paid about $12 for.
Here is a tutorial on how I made it.
remnant of stretch knit fabric at least 4" wide
serger (if you don't have one, a zigzag stitch will work)
I cut my fabric 4" x 19" to allow for a seam allowance. It ended up a little loose on my head, but I'd rather have it too loose than too tight! It still has stretch and will hold my hair out of my face.
I chose to leave the edges unfinished, but you could certainly hem them with a coverstitch if you have that option on your serger.
I can't wait to make more of these in different colors. They are so comfy and so easy to make! And by my calculations, this headband cost only $0.25 to make. How's that for the deal of the century?
