Re-purposing: Tshirts into 5-strand-braided-headbands
I was walking through Target a few weeks ago and noticed this little knit fabric headband that was not just braided together…….but woven. I decided they were charging way too much for something that could be made with t-shirt scraps. And that means free. So there you have it. A nice and easy project to give my bad-hair-day head some love. (Or you may need one for working out. I kinda love it on my little girl . She always has little hair fly-aways that get into her face…….and this helps with that problem. It even works great with her hair down…..and keeps that hair tucked behind her ears. And yep, good for me too. Thanks little t-shirt scraps. Want to make your own? First, find some old t-shirts. Then, cut your fabric into long strips. Next, stack your 5 strips on top of each other and sew together at one end. Now, pull on each strip of fabric so that they kind of curl on the edges. But let me explain a little better. First, you’ll work on the left side. And that’s it. This post is sponsored by:

These turned out to be really easy to make and require just a few simple supplies. page 14 We get a lot of emails asking how to use brushes correctly so I hope this helps you out a little! A brow brush is designed to be stiff and angled for a reason. And we use the slanted edge to shade and the tip of the edge to outline. Put those components together and a brow brush is quite frankly a thing of perfection! Here’s how to use it properly: READ MORE… Last week we explored four different ways to wear Spring’s biggest Cobalt blue trend.

Coolest Embellished T-Shirts and Tops - Photo Gallery (3 of 5) My favorite fashion trend of the moment are embellished t-shirts and tops. Why do I love them so much? They're the perfect thing to wear for a night out. You can still look amazingly dressy even with jeans! (My dresses are completely out for the season, it was -2 degrees today!)

How to Make a Headband, Version 1: The Head Scarf Silk head scarf measuring 10" (25 cm) wide by 15.5" (39 cm) long with covered elastic measuring 1" (25 mm) wide by 6" (15 cm) long. Woven fabric, like lightweight cotton, linen, silk chiffon, or silk charmeuse 1" (25 mm) wide elastic--you'll need a length of about 6" (15 cm), but you can wait to cut it until the fitting stage Safety pin or loop turner Main Piece: Cut 1 rectangle from your fabric as shown in Diagram 1.

Old Mens T-shirt Sewn Into Women's Dolman Tee My husband and I are runners so we have a million t-shirts. I love transforming these boxy, oversized tees into something I will actually want to wear other then for a nightgown. I love this heather grey and wanted to make it into my favorite style tee. I love the comfortable, effortless style of the dolman tee... Made By Rae: (Free!) Buttercup Bag Sewing Pattern This pattern uses a mere fat quarter of fabric for the outer + a little less of another fabric for lining. If you’re using quilting cotton for the outer fabric, I recommend using a fusible interfacing to strengthen it. You’ll also need a magnetic snap and (optionally) a couple of buttons, although it looks pretty cute without the buttons too. I think this would also look great with some piping or ric-rac over the pleats…I can’t wait to see what y’all do with this one!
