Yet another headband.
This one is for days when I'm feeling more subtle, and less ruffle-y. I'm calling it my lilypad headband, because that is what it reminds me of.
No tutorial, because I'm afraid it would be too self explanatory. I just cut out circle(ish) pieces of china silk (lightly singed the edges to minimize fraying), layered them and stitched them to some grosgrain ribbon and then added a few glass beads. I'm playing with adding more beads, slowly.
More of my headbands here, here, here and here. Yes, I'm obsessed.

so pretty...I just adore your work.ReplyDelete
I love your headbands! You seriously need an etsy shop!ReplyDelete
They look so great on you. Wish I could wear them-I have several-but always remove them at the last minute. I don't think they look so good on me...ReplyDelete
This one is really pretty (like all the other ones...), I am a fan of your headbands!ReplyDelete
Just lovely! Headbands are such distinctive accessories!ReplyDelete
the headband is lovely enough...but the name makes it even more appealing!ReplyDelete
This is such a gorgeous headband! I love the color and the name is wonderful.ReplyDelete
So pretty Rachel and the beads look cute! Lovely!ReplyDelete
wow, love that soothing minty green color and the delicate beads, beautiful!ReplyDelete
Yes I agree, the green color is stunning!ReplyDelete
Oh wow - so amazing and the perfect colour!ReplyDelete
Beautiful work. Makes me want to start wearing headbands.ReplyDelete
That is beautiful!ReplyDelete
I think you should post the tutorial for us DIY-challenged people!! :)
Divine! I'm loving the idea of singeing the ends; it gives the lily pads a sort of graphic, line-drawn quality. You're onto something, lady. Small business, maybe?ReplyDelete
Oh, I love this one the most.ReplyDelete
Rachel, all your headbands are so lovely! I'm definitely seeing an etsy shop of some sort in your future :)ReplyDelete
You're an amazing headband maker! I see an etsy shop in your future...ReplyDelete
I love your headbands! I think this one may be my favorite...ReplyDelete
It's perfect! I totally agree with you- some days you just don't feel like wearing froufy stuff. It's rare for me, but it happens :)ReplyDelete
Wow, that is GORGEOUS!ReplyDelete
Verrry cute! I will have to try this myself!ReplyDelete
This is so lovely, Rachel. And your braid! I love your braid! Pretty girl.ReplyDelete
Yes yes! So simple and lovely.ReplyDelete
I love this idea, I can't get enough of using ribbon in creative ways, thanks for the great inspiration!ReplyDelete
I love it. Please post a tutorial even though it seems simple!ReplyDelete
I love this headband.ReplyDelete
I wear so many headbands a week, but this one is unlike any I have seen before.
I love all of them ... you are awesome. I second the idea of an etsy shop! I guess I'll attempt one myself until then ... your braid looks great too!ReplyDelete
Lovely variation and lovely, relaxing green. I am just about to start off on my own ruffly waistband, thanks to your tutorial! Thank you for sharing all of your headbands!ReplyDelete
the simplicity makes it perfect...sigh...xo tReplyDelete
Wow, amazing. I actually bought some ribbon and fabric after one of your earlier attempts (haven't done anything with it yet) - but this one looks way too complicated!ReplyDelete
i LOVE your lilypad headband! i love the colour, the shape, the fabric and the itty bitty embellishing beads! so sweet ...ReplyDelete
and i checked out your other headbands, there, there, there and there ... and i must say i was very taken with the bonny yellow one ~ very chic and fun!
thanks rachel ~ your blog is a delight!
this is so absolutely gorgeous, and unique! was pretty stunned when i first looked it. pleeease, please post a tutorial (with pictures!! ^^) for the diy-handicapped like yours sincerely?ReplyDelete
but thanks a whole lot for sharing. you're so inspirational!! <3
hey so i found your headbands online yesterday and decided to tackle them as I love being crafty with the needle (of the sewing, knitting and crocheting variety!). made this one and the ruffly one today and love them both( the ruffly one may be too poofy...) can't wait to show them off they are adorable! thanks!!!ReplyDelete
