I feel like one of Elizabeth Bennet’s sisters, getting so excited over new hair ribbons! Or maybe I’m just envious of all the cute hair ties little girls these days get to wear. But it’s so nice to be able to make my own super easy headbands, as my noggin is just too big for store-bought ones. I found these lovely elastic ribbons on etsy for only 30 – 80 cents a yard. Smaller hair ties like these can go for $3 for just one! Fabric stores often carry elastic ribbon, but they don’t always have a great variety. I used an overhand knot (like tying a balloon) after I measured the right length for my noggin. My young nephew even got in on them, requesting some ninja headbands!
