This post is supposed to be on last week but I was too busy to write up this blog post. Since my daughter learns dancing, she needs a lot of hair bands and hairties to tie up her hair into a bun or two. 2 weeks before, I saw one of my daughter’s dancing class classmates wear a lace hairtie which held the hair bun so firm. Her mom told me and some other mothers that she bought it from Daiso at $1.50 each. If you know how to sew or have a sewing machine at home, it is worth trying DIY as you would not find another one girl who has the same one like your girls.
A piece of fabric wherever size but must be in the shape of a stripe
Lace, matches the length of the piece of fabric
Elastic strings, prefer to be a bit wider
Needle and threads
How to make it?
1) Cut out a stripe of fabric, I used a piece of 4″ wide this time. I would try maybe 3″ and 2″ next time. 4″ is a little bit wide but needs to reserve space for lace.
2) Attach the piece of lace on the right side of the fabric and then fold the fabric up. Start sewing on the negative side of the fabric.
3) Sew all the way toward the end of the fabric, then fold the fabric inside out to form a long “tube” with lace attached on one side.
4) Insert the elastic strings into the “tube” and tie a knot.
5) Sew the 2 ends of the “tube” together and hind the elastic knot inside.
6) Adjust the position of the elastic string inside the “tube” and it is ready to use.
