But obviously Big Sparkle didn't get rid of quite enough. After a brief period of blessed quiet which we stupidly relished, she reappeared sans half her fringe.
|Hubby asked me if I could 'even it up'. No dear, no I can't.|
I took a moments for the obligatory Mummy freak out and asked Google what I was to do. Google said 'Ha ha, my kid did that too! Yeah, nothing you can do about that.' Cheers Google. So then I asked Pinterest, and she said 'Never mind, I have a whole load of cute headbands and stuff, come and see!' More like it! I love you Pinterest. Here is the link for the template I used.
I had some scraps cut from last years school dress and some fabric which matches her school jumper.
|Pin template to folded fabric (the fatter end of the template at the folded edge).|
|Cut out and repeat with complimentary fabric.|
Pin these together right sides together and stretch out your elastic so you get an idea of how long to cut the fabric for the covering sleeve. The headpiece measured a little under 30cm and unstretched the elastic measured about 25cm. Streched it measured about 35cm so thats how long I made the sleeve to cover.
|Headpiece, sleeve and elastic - I used thinner elastic than this.|
Then add a safety pin to the end of the elastic and thread it through the tube. If you pin the end you wont go threading it too far through the tube. I know this.
Voila! A cute reversible
|Hurrah! Much better!|
I hope you enjoyed this blog entry. I hope your child hasn't chopped off her hair though.
