I was working on a few basic alterations this weekend and one of the dresses came with a sash at the waist. I'm not a fan of the matching fabric sash, if I want to cinch the waist I'd much rather use a belt. I have a bunch of these hanging in my closet and never know what to do with them. It seems silly to donate them, wasteful to throw them out, and pointless to hang on to them. So I turned this one into a fun new headband. The whole project took about fifteen minutes.
Step 4: Turn both long pieces away from the short piece. Stitch a little box over the seam to reinforce and ensure that it lays flat. This will be hidden behind your ear so your stitching doesn't have to be perfect.
Step 5: Repeat steps 2 through 4 on other side. Be sure to line up your pieces carefully making sure you have the right sides together and there are no twists.
Step 6: Look festive in your pretty new headband!
