I used Heather Bailey's pattern. The pattern and instructions are great and this was a very quick and easy project.
The headbands work well thanks to a piece of elastic inserted between the ends of the band. The ties are purely decorative.
I had a good time working on these together with my daughter. I did the sewing, clipping and pressing and she turned the pieces right-side-out, cut the elastic, and did some of the assembly. She's very excited about giving them to her friends.
Next Up: I don't know exactly what, but it will be more summer clothes for kids.
