One project out of three to show

Three projects have been progressing well this weekend. Yay!! ...lots more to go. Yikes.

One is a Christmas gift...I can't show you until later when I'm sure it won't be seen. ;-)

The second one ended up being more (and also better!) than I expected. I'll save that for its own post.

The third one I can show you! Background: I got my hair cut the other day, and my lady is SO sweet and creative! She comes up with the best ideas, but she doesn't feel like she can make them. In this case, she came across the Earwarmer/Headbands that are becoming so popular, and she wanted someone to make them for her. I'm up for the challenge!

I looked around online to see if there was a pattern similar to what she described (I LOVE that she is so detailed! She knows exactly what she wants). Nothing struck me as what she really wanted, so I made a new pattern.

I was so excited to take the finished product to her that I forgot to take pictures (bad blogger, bad blogger, shame on you!). Thankfully, I was already working up the second one and just finished it up!

I like the simplicity of it that she was looking for, and I think she was happy with how it turned out.

If you're looking for other options, I'm a teeny tiny bit jealous of that great pattern that Tamara has been using lately! See if you can find that book!

Michelle also has a great pattern for a wider headband.

Here are two more patterns--one done with a pretty shell pattern and one worked along the length of the headband rather than the width.

And a last one--a very simple pattern to stretch around the head rather than connect with a button.

Hope you find something you like!
