short hills headband how-to

The girls at our store in Short Hills NJ wanted to share a project with you. Do you have more Free People cloth shopping bags than you know what to do with? Maybe you should make some headbands!!

First, cut a long strip from your bag, twice as wide as you want your headband.

With a contrasting thread, whip stitch the long edges together, and then turn the tube inside out.

Use some scrap fabrics with a cute print to make patches of color on your headband.

Sew em on there however you’d like.

Cut a triangle in each end to make a cute tail, then whip stitch the edges so the fabric doesn’t fray.

That’s so cute! I never thought to do anything like that with the bags except use them as gift bags.
