So Very Scaly

Recently while working on a special Burdastyle project I stumbled upon some of the most beautiful fabric I had ever seen! Rows of scalloped tulle sewn together in layers to create this amazing scale-like illusion...I _had_ to have it and for half off of $40 a yd, I could sacrifice eating if it meant I could have just one yard!

I think tshirt yarn is perfect for a knotted headband!

Knotted Headband with tshirt yarn

I even have a quick video on how to form the knot. I think we've all seen that fun Knotted Headband by You Seriously Made That - - here's a refresher: Cami did a great job and I followed her tutorial for the "knot" part of the headband. So go there for that. But instead of crocheting long strands, I used Tshirt Yarn. If you're wondering how to make t-shirt yarn, just cut strips from an old tshirt (mine were maybe 3/4 in wide) and then pull on them til they turn in on themselves. Want to see my video tutorial on how to make this knot??
