This was inspired by Z's Anthropologie headband. I don't think I have the best head shape for headbands but having bangs/fringes on your face 24 hours a day can drive a girl nuts. Oh and if you're sick of seeing this fabric, don't worry this is the last of it... woohoo!!!
Karen suggested that I use a "doody band" instead of a traditional elastic - she shares the same problems I have with these things (after a couple of hours it a. finds its way off of my wacky pumpkin head OR b. I start to get a headache and I'm forced to rip it off myself) so I thought I'd give it a whirl.
My machine was giving me some issues with the satin edge stitch so I had to hand sew the band on. Not really sure why, but it kept stalling and eating up the thread from the satin-edge. I'll have to find a work around or figure out what I'm doing wrong.
I've been wearing it for three hours now and it's still on but I do sense a slight tightness in the head region =)
