New Skills Festival - headband making with Chie

Today I want to introduce you to the delightful Chie from Vivat Veritas, I can't quite remember how we met but I do know I fell in love with her blog and she is sooo much better at making clothes than I am!

Hello! My name is Chie. I'm thrilled to be able to participate in Jo's new skills carnival!
I've been sewing since I was little, but it was not until 3 years ago that I really got into sewing clothes, especially woman's clothes. When my friend lent me a basic sewing machine and I made a pillow case. With a little practice the next thing I knew, I was selling my creations on etsy.

Sewing clothes creates a lot of left over fabric. Those leftover pieces are usually so small that they can't even be used to make a camisole or shorts. They are however, big enough that I don't want to throw them out. I serendipitously came to find that those scraps are the perfect size with which to make headbands. This headband is super easy to make, and a great way to reduce your left over fabric stash! Once you get used to it, it takes less than half an hour to make one. The headband has a wire inside, so it stays on your head, and you can twist the end however you like.

Here is a tutorial on how to make this headband:


hope you enjoy making the headband. Stop over at my blog to see my sewing journey and take a look at my etsy shop to find some really cute dresses :)
