DIY Vintage Lace Headband
We’re approaching the end of our DIY project entries and I’m already feeling a bit sentimental. It’s been a lot of fun sharing do-it-yourself ideas from such creative people! Today we’ll be posting a few more submissions and brace yourself, because what we’re posting today is pure goodness.
We’re going to start the day with a project sent by Jessica, who made an adorable headband using an appliqué from a vintage dress. Here she used a matching ribbon to tie the headband, but you could also try sewing an elastic band at the bottom instead. Either way, the idea is just fabulous!
What you’ll need:
- 1940′s dress appliqué purchased at a local antique shop. (Cat’s Cradle Antiques)
- one yard of gold ribbon (http://www.joann.com/joann/home/home.jsp?topnavlink=true)
- white thread
I positioned the appliqué on the ribbon placing it more on the side of the head. I pinned the ribbon and then sewed it onto the appliqué. Secure both ends by sewing (either by hand or using a sewing machine). I cut the ends of the ribbon so they were even with the way the appliqué would lay on the head.
