Scraptastic Headbands

Super simple refashion(s) straight out of the scrap  basket today.
I had some hem scraps from two different refashions, the bottom hem from one shirt refashion that I haven't posted and the original neckline binding from my lavender dress a few months ago.
For the light lavender scrap that I had, I simply placed the middle at the top of my head and and tied it under my hair.

The other scrap was much longer since it was the entire bottom perimeter of a tunic-style top. I put the middle of the scrap on the back of my head, under my hair, wrapped it around the top, crossed the ends and took them back the direction that they came, leaving a bit of a knotted look. I also tied if back under my hair.

I feel like these stay better than store-bought headbands and are more comfortable than ribbons. You can read more about my scrappy headbands on my blog,

T-shirt headbands are the best! I've made some by simple cutting a few inches off the sleeve of a plain unisex tee (I'd used the body for something else already). That's it! Just a tube of fabric, but it's stretchy enough to go around my head and hold my hair back while I work out, but also super comfy.

Great project!
