Baby Girl Headbands
I LOVE ribbons! I love adding ribbons to my hair on any given day. Baby girl headbands are all the rage right now. Do you remember what we used wear? I loved our plastic barrettes and small rubber band bows. They were just enough to add to the baby girls head once she grew a little hair. To be honest; today's hair pieces have gotten a little out of control, where the bows are wearing the baby. To each their own! However, I have always been a ribbon girl stemming from the ole' softball and volleyball days. Will I ever be too old for a bow? A friend's mom still wears ribbons in her hair and she is one of the coolest women I know. I think I will stick with my ribbons for now!
Back to the gift idea. The idea just came together after I bought some extra flowers on sale during Courtney's wedding as I made hair pieces for all the girls. They had just been sitting in my craft box waiting for a purpose. Then I remembered I had some elastic ribbon in my ribbon box that I hadn't touched in years. I decided to put two and two together to make a cute baby girl gift for almost nothing.
I put my plan into action early this month. My good friend and co-worker Sara was expecting a baby girl at the end of September and I wanted to give her something extra special. I looked up a couple tutorials online to get an idea of how to put it together and gave it a whirl. After a little sewing and some gluing, VOILA, a trendy and colorful baby gift to give your present a personal touch.
