With this in mind I came up with my second baby girl craft project... headbands!!! What better way to keep her from getting called a boy while her hair grows in than cute little hair pretties... or head pretties I guess you could say as the hair may not be there right away :)
For a few weeks I scoured my favorite website (other than Pinterest) ETSY and collected lots of different materials to make my headbands. Here are two shops I purchased from Fleuriste Craft Supply and Pretty Things Supplies. Both were great to work with! I had a tough time deciding what all I wanted to get and in what colors so I bought a few different things to start and will be back to buy more. I also love wearing headbands and so figured that while I was ordering some for the baby I would order some adult size to make some for me!
The creating day came and my sister-in-law, Alicia, had planned to join me. I found out before we started that Alicia was a little nervous to come over as she's not much of a crafter. However, after she made her first one she realized how easy and fun it actually was! This was my idea of a perfect Saturday morning crafting with a friend. If anyone wants to join me next Saturday let me know. You get to take home what you make :)
Alicia ended up taking home 2 headbands for herself, I made one for myself and baby girl has 4... so far. Even our little model enjoyed the day (see below).
Here are some pictures from the day:
