Everyone loves a complete outfit with accessories to go with each and every outfit. I've seen accessories cost more than the outfit we started out complimenting. The solution... Sew your own hair headbands, ribbons, bows, hair flowers and more while using your scraps of fabric. If you make the outfit, you are bound to have perfect compliments to the outfit when the accessories are made with the fabric scraps.
My daughter wanted an entire wardrobe of fabric hair flowers. I don't mind paying a couple of dollars for an accessory but when I see a sixteen dollar price tag, I look for a way to make it myself! The best part is these are made entirely from scraps and stuff that was in the sewing room... and my anti sewing teen, suddenly wanted to start sewing!
These headbands are a perfect way to use your fabric scraps to make a matching headband... adding bows and other adornments makes it even more special. Since you are the designer and the creator, you choose the size, the color and the fabric to make the most comfortable and the most adorable headband possible!
These scrunchies are a great way to hold a pony tail without damaging your hair. If you have fine silky hair you may need a covered band to hold a pony tail but a scrunchie covering it will dress up your hair. Use production sewing techniques to sew a bag full to have on hand and match every possible outfit!
This headband is very versatile and can be as wide as you want. It is a perfect solution to being able to protect your hair from the sun if you are staying outside but at the same time, only have a headband if that's the look you want. The fabric covered elastic prevents your hair from being damaged and it's comfortable to wear. I wear one at the pool, since there are no strings, I don't end up with string lines in my tan and my hair stays protected from the sun.
One of my favorite outfits when I was young, had a matching sunhat that was made with the same fabric as the dress... I made it myself and won blue ribbons. Helps make memories and a great outfit by topping the outfit off with a matching hat! A hat also protects against sunburn and possible skin cancer so making your own hat is a winner in more ways than one!
Why is that when you are working in the garden, the gnats and mosquitoes want to dive bomb your eyes? It can drive you to distraction! This idea guides you through adding a net barrier to your hat so you can do the gardening without the pests driving you crazy!
A baseball cap is not going to offer ears and neck any kind of sun protection but this hat will. Your fabric choice will make it perfect for a boy or a girl.
You can make one of this hat to match every outfit your little girls owns. The ruffle edge is simple but effective in offering sun protection while giving a frilly touch to the simple hat. Perfect for any and every outfit!
Some times, a bow or ribbon is all that is needed to complete an outfit. Tie a fancy bow or a simple bow, attach a bobby pin or barrette and you have your solution. These links will guide you to instructions to tying a perfect bow.
