5 Minute Headband (217:365)

Yes, it really only took me 5 minutes to make this dazzling little beauty.
I got the tutorial from New Green Mama.
All you need is some old knit material and 5 inches of elastic.

I used a pair of Scott's old pajama pants 
that have some lovely HUGE holes in the behind.

They will NOT be missed.

Now they are being put to better use, making my gross hair look cuter!

How to make the headband:

Cut a 2 1/2" by 14" rectangle. 
Then slice the rectangle lengthwise 3 or 4 times, getting only 3 inches from the ends on both sides. These strips will curl when pulled tight.

Then you sew about a 5" piece of elastic, zig-zagging it on both ends. I kind of rolled up the knit material around the elastic to encase it better.

I will definitely be making more of these little darlings.
