I have been drooling over some pretty awesome headbands on the Internet lately. I’ve seen the ones with the big flowers or the three beaded flowers in a row….it got me thinking about using some yo-yo’s and attaching them to a headband. Not sure if you’ve heard, but I am addicted to making yo-yo’s. If I am going to watch television (and HELLO- who isn’t watching right now!?!? I love the Olympics!!) I figured I should do double duty and make something. So, yes I have lovely collection of little yo-yo’s…..and it makes me happy just looking at them.
Here is what I did:
I used the small Clover yo-yo maker to make mine….and believe me. Those yo-yo makers make a WORLD of difference! Then you just attach the yo-yo to the headband. (I used a fabric covered headband) and sewed through the fabric on the headband and around the headband. DO that a few times tie it off and repeat. I am going to try attaching the yo-yo’s to the stretchy headbands next.
If you make any or have any tips I’d love to hear them or see them!! Have a wonderful day…it is Tuesday after all.
