{Post 1,297} Headband and Blue 9-Patch AGAIN

It took me about 10 minutes to whip up this headband the other day, and I like it so much!  It's a 5-strand braid (as opposed to the usual 3-strand) and was soooo easy to make.  It's upcycled from a black T-shirt destined for the trash can.  It's on my Pinterest page under "sewing projects".  The only sewing I did was to sew the 5 pieces stacked up at the beginning and then over the other finished end.  I cut my strips vertically out of the shirt instead of around the bottom, making my pieces too short.  But it went from behind one ear to behind the other.  With my voluminous hair, one would never know it wasn't braided all the way around.  It is extremely comfortable, unlike the plastic ones that dig in behind the ears, or the elastic ones that are so tight that one expects them to boing off the back of their head at any moment.  In the picture, I am looking down (I know someone will wonder!).

My last 9-patch pictures of the day, second complete with photobomber!!

I love your hair band! You might consider a tute??? My photo bomber is usually a dog - the daughter is an upgrade I think!

well it's helpful to get a sense of scale LOL

How lovely to have "voluminous hair" most ladies of our age are mourning their luscious locks. I'm lucky my hair is curly, it always looks like more :-)
