Fashion Friday: Cashmere Headband


holiday gift ideas are sweeping the internets...
Here is one of mine:
Cashmere headband from lightly fulled (felted) sweater...
with felt pompom flower and felted leaf embellishment.

This is so lovely and comfy. It is pretty straight forward construction but let me know if a tutorial is needed. I made this from a bit of the turtleneck of a shrunken sweater, but the wide tops of sleeves might work equally well. It is just slip stitched together underneath and then the flower is stitched on. A wide one could make very sweet earwarmers! You could decorate with fabric yoyos or needle felted sweetness as well. I will be making more of these for certain.

because I took the pledge.
Handmade Holidays.
Best Get Crafting.

Edit: I will be posting the tutorial on Tuesday...For the flower and the headband.
Thanks for all the great feedback.
Have a great weekend !
