31 Pins In 31 Days: Pin 1

Day one is brought to you by The Beauty Department.

I pinned this awhile back and since I have oodles of vintage ribbon and trim, I thought this would be a great project to tackle.

Lovely trim.

I gathered my supplies which was a nice and short list.

-My sewing machine (The Beauty Department hand stitched it, even though I'm not an expert with my sewing machine, it was faster for me).
-Vintage ribbon/trim

I folded my trim over on the ends to keep fraying from occurring (again, not mentioned in the tutorial from The Beauty Department).  Some of the trims I had picked out, already were fraying on one end, so I figured this was the safest route.

I just did a simple stitch on the folder over (which i did twice btw).

After that was done, I pinned the elastic in place and stitched it in place.

Stitched the elastic to the other side and voila!

A pile of headbands.

This was a fabulous pin and I'm glad it was the first one I picked out.  Granted I ran into a few problems with nonstop interruptions from the kids, a needle breaking, more interruptions (must get a lock for my door...lol), but all together I whipped up all of these in say 30 minutes. 


This is definitely a project I will do again in the future with more trim/ribbon (I have enough of it afterall....:)


  1. I love this/these, so want one!!! Looks like something I could actually do; I have a nice sewing machine but I never learned how to sew, but this I could handle:)

    thanks for sharing!

  2. beautiful! (both you and your new headband!)
