Headbands (Hooray!)

Tomorrow is my daughter's sixth birthday.  She's having a party on Sunday afternoon with seven friends. My goal for party favors was to avoid junk - both the plastic/toy variety and the edible kind. These headbands were part of my solution.

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.
