oh! headband.

Remember in first grade, when the girls all made friendship bracelets? Well I got back into that, but I didn't make a bracelet...

I made a cute little woven headband with elastic in the back.

yay! haha. I wove it (notice it isn't braded. there are 5 wide cords and a thin gold strand). It can be worn all cute and bohemian-like, with the entire headband over the hair, or simple and sophisticated the way a normal headband is worn.

I'm not quite sure what the wider cords are made of.. I should have checked when I was at the store. But I'll be be going back soon, so no worries. The cords are made of 100% rayon, so they're nice and smooth. Seriously. I wear headbands pretty much all the time. It's a bit of an obsession.

As you can see, it's really simple to make. The most time-consuming part is the weaving, and that's not bad at all. Here's a closeup:

The best part about this headband? It cost practically nothing! Definitely cheaper than buying them from a store..
