DIY Non Slip Headbands

Good morning! I had delicious Idaho trout last night.

Now I have to wait another year or more before I eat it again.

While I get my Vegas on, check out my latest creation. When I was at the Shape Diva Dash, I saw a booth selling some fun non-slip headbands, the kind with velvet ribbon to keep it from moving around. I went off to buy one, but turned right around when I saw that they cost $12 each.

Cool story bro.

Then I discovered some tutorials on how to make those exact headbands. I used Kristina Grum’s tutorial and made seven headbands for a total cost of $11.

I knew they’d be cheap but I didn’t realize it would be that cheap! The elastic was 17 cents/yd, grosgrain ribbon was 38 cents/yd, and the velvet was $2/yd. My local store only had solid colors and polka dots.

I took it out for a spin. Too bad this place was closed when I ran by:

Goody brand makes these headbands too but they are actually not well made. If you have basic sewing skills and a machine, you can do this. They would be really cute as stocking stuffers or as a gift for your running club ladyfriends.
