Bands O' LOVE

So-some ladies at my church (who took a sneaky peak look at my blog) loved the headbands my cousin Lara made and asked me if I could teach a class on how to make them?!?!? Lara lives in Salt Lake City and I live in South Carolina. OK- I said, even though I had no idea how to make them. LOL

I fiddled around and this is what I came up with. For those of you who have asked if you can buy them... some are listed in my Etsy shop now.

They are so fun to wear and a cool scrappy rose headband, with any outfit, is just too gorgeous for words.

I took it to the next level and made this little felted wool nest headband.
LOVE it.
I made 2- one for my little girl for Easter and one for someone to buy on Etsy.

This black and cream one is one of my favorites. I used a very old enamel and brass button to adorn the center. Pair this with a cute little black cardigan and BOOM you just took your look up 100 notches.

This one with jeans and a cute white shirt...ahhhhh they are all so adorable and give you the Anthropology look for a 1/4 of the price.

I LOVED this project. Can you tell?

Oh my gosh! Crazy cute, Emily. I can understand why someone all the way across the country is begging you to teach them how to make these.

Sooo, soooo cute! You love your nieces, right? (I'm just saying! Cause Easter is coming up and all! :)

So adorable! And you gotta show me how to make them. What would be even better is to put a clip on them so you can clip them in hair or pin them on a shirt or group a few together. LOVE IT!!!!

Why did I not get any of these genes?

I totally loved your post and made them with my Activity Days girls. They all made extra and donated them to Primary Children's Hospital and then wore them to church that Sunday. Thanks for the brilliant idea!!! I linked you!
