DIY Autumn leaf headband

soooooooooooo are you ready for the easiest DIY like...EVER?! oh and did I mention, super cute? I actually threw this together this morning (in under 10 minutes, now that's what I'm talkin' bout ;) to wear to the fall kick-off for our church's youth group (I was asked to take some photos and watch the potato-themed fun).

Anyway, back to headband talk... ready to make? okay, lets go!

Here's the supplies Felt - I went a little crazy at the craft store the other day and got just about every fall color they had in stock (at 30cents a piece I was a biiiig spenda!) Elastic - mine was an 1.5 inches wide, I think! Thread Scissors oh and either a needle or a sewing machine (I used my machine just so it'd be extra sturdy)

I just wrapped the elastic around my head to figure out the right size, you'll sew it a tiny bit smaller (but not too small, nothing it more annoying than a super tight headband that keeps sliding off your head all day!)

cut out your leaf shapes in different colors!

sew your elastic ends (by hand if you don't have a machine)

next just sew your leaves on! I sewed the "hidden" ends first and then went over all 3 to make it extra sturdy.

All Done!

Enjoy!

Sew Pretty

I am so excited to show off my Christmas present from my amazing boyfriend. It's a vintage 1944 Singer sewing machine. Its the super cute kind that hides away in its own table and a cute little compartment for the threads and bobbins. Did I mention it's completely working? It works like brand new and even had it's original manual with it (with a thousand super helpful pictures). My boyfriend knows me so well:)

I love it... love it love it.
