33 cent nylon headbands

nylon baby headbands- a quick sloppy how to:
i had no idea to make these and couldn't find very much info on the interwebnet. i knew i wanted thinner fabric then the knee highs i had seen ( and they were too wide anyhow) so i bought these nylon knee highs from walmart, in the gumball container for 33 cents.
they were pretty wrinkled so i ironed them on low heat.
then i folded them in half.
these ones are for a newborn baby so i sewed them about 6 inches from the fold. then i trimmed the fabric about 1/4 inch away from seam and flipped it right side out.
add your flowers and your done. sorry no action pictures my boys would not oblige. there you go 2 minute headbands... and at two for 33 cents, you too can make buttloads!maybe you all know how to do this but seeing as how i have 3 little boys and haven't been able to find the info i needed i thought it might come in handy for someone.

I love this...I think I'll make some using old thigh highs for my big-headed 4 year old, lol! I'll just have to make sure to remember to cut the lace off, haha.
