Upcycled Jeans Headband

If you have kids like mine you've got more than enough pairs of jeans with holes in the knees. I normally turn them into cutoffs for the summer but what do you do with the bottom part of those pants?

Here, we take the bottom part of the legs (these were a size 5 kids jeans). Cut about 1 inch off and open in in the middle of the front or back.
Fray both sides and attach it to your headband and trim off the bottom so it's not so bulky around the ears.
Take the bottom hem and cut off about 1 1/2 to 2 inches. Sew along your cut end and pull the thread to ruffle.
Sew a button or other decoration you want in the middle. (this is just to hide the seam in the middle of the flower)
Attach the ruffle flower to the headband.
You can make is stick out
Or fold it down to look like this

Slow Going for a while

It's going to be sort of slow going for a while. My little blonde hair model is my day care girl. She's now down to one day a week for a few weeks and then we're moving. (after we move I should have access to my husband's little nieces though!) So, between the chaos of trying to plan a huge move and everything else it may be a while before my next post. Maybe I'll have to figure out some new mom dos!

So, this isn't goodbye, just more of a see ya later!

Tons of Braids Video

This one was one of my favorites so I did a video on it today! I'll do another one with the original parts later.

Haven't forgotten

Just a quick note to say that I'm still here. Just super busy! (and I guess I have to learn how to use my new camera! The other videos I did won't upload at all!) Hopefully things will calm down and I'll have time to post the do's that I have stuck in my head!
