Headbanding

Here’s a little something I played around with this past weekend. I saw these cute headbands on various blogs and thought they were pretty cute. Then during a routine visit to the fabric store I noticed lots of knits on the half-off bargain rack… who could resist? I caved and promptly purchased some knits to make some of my own!

I had plans to do a whole how-to spiel on making one of these, but I haven’t quite nailed down how to finish the back yet. The current method isn’t that great, and I’m determined to master a better way. And now, since I have my new toy with me I can get right on that and whip up a tutorial for you in no time! (well, let’s hope that’s how it goes…)

In the mean time, here are some views of the headbands on…no commissioned models this time…bear with me and my poor modeling skillz:

p.s. I’m slowly learning how to actually code some things on this blog. I made cute little pinterest and twitter buttons on the sidebar. Check ’em out and follow me!

Bad Hair Day (…a green theme?)

It’s Wednesday! Only one more week of work for me before an 11-day break from work!  Eleven Days! Can you even imagine the things that can be made during those days?!

Ohhh man, too pumped.

In the meantime here’s a hat I made during my second year of grad school. Architecture school means lots of nights with little or no sleep, and that means if I could get by without doing my hair for an extra half-hour of sleep, that’s what happened. So here’s a nice little hat that can cover up a bad hair and actually make it look like you tried to look like that! ha!

ahhh, I couldn’t get away with cropping out my head with this one…

I actually completely forgot about this hat until I posted about the green circle scarf because this was where one of the scraps came from. It was Lion Brand Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton in Olive (? maybe? or mustard? I can’t really tell from my screen, and I don’t really remember)

Note: It must seem like that I’m an avid Lion Brand Yarn user and obsessed with all things green (gum, yarn, soda, etc). Neither are true. All coincidental.  Non-green, non-Lion Brand things are forth coming.

Note 2: I was just looking for the pattern I used for this and the blog isn’t up anymore! I’ll be on the lookout for another similar pattern, but if you find one that you like, let me know!
