friday hair tip!

Post image for friday hair tip!

this adorable fabric headband caught my eye yesterday…and our buyer who is wearing it had a great idea! you can make these with old free people bags :) i know i, for one, have about ten of them lying around so i decided to try it out!

i cut a strip of fabric from the bag length-wise, so that i would have a longer piece of fabric. then i just folded it over a couple of times and wrapped it around my head like a turban! if you’re not sure how to do that – we’ve got a tutorial you should check out here :)

voila! perfect for a hot summer day, at the beach, for yoga or just anytime you need to keep your hair out of your face!

LOVE-love-love this!! i’ve done so many things with my free people bags… so cute if you stitch over the print with bright thread to add a little extra color and texture :)

Also such a clever recycled idea, definetly inspired me to hunt through all my old bags and fabrics which will now have a new lease of life as headbands ha!

The centered pullover isn’t available anymore…I was upset when it went out of stock. I think it’s my favorite FP item.

How long was the fabric you used? I’m having issues making it into a turban.

super super simple. yet very stylish. I think, based on the fabric you used, it’s much better to use printed or colorful fabrics.
