It's pretty obvious who had the most fun with this craft! What a cheesy smile. Seriously. I need to get out more often. Wyatt got involved with the craft but was a little hesitant to pose with us girls. So he opted for a necklace pose. He said he made the headband for his mom. How sweet!
Credit is due to craftsnob . com for this easy t-shirt headband idea. I turned a super cool tie-dye maternity shirt into something that I didn't think could possibly out do the t-shirt in terms of coolness. (No comments allowed on this posting)! I cut the shirt into long strips. Measured our noggins with each strip. Tied a knot. Cut off the excess, which was twisted and rolled into the flower for the headband. I used a hot glue gun to adhere the flower. Now I need to find a brown, black, or gray t-shirt to make a few more headbands that I will wear in public. This one is super comfy. It doesn't give me a headache like traditional headbands. And it will probably never break.
(Note: my cousin Marcia wore this shirt when she picked up Clare & I at the Chicago airport in December 2010 when we moved from Oregon to Indiana. She was 7 months pregnant. She totally rocked this tie-dye shirt. I am in deep thought about sending the shirt back to her. It will make a lovely belly shirt for a hot summer day in Chicago).
