Lace Headbands!

A couple weeks ago my grandma gave me her old box of sewing stuff. It had old zippers, thread, lace, and a bunch of random items. You know what that means right? Craft time! :) 

I took a couple of the pieces of old lace and cut them 20 1/2". I also took a piece of 
old scrap elastic and cut it in half. Each half ended up being 3" long. I didn't take a trip to the store, I just used what I had lying around my craft room. If you are going to buy these items I would get stretchy lace so you don't have to get elastic at all. However, if you can't find stretchy lace make sure your elastic is the same width as you lace and a coordinating color (the white elastic didn't look that great with the purple lace. But if you have your hair down...who is gonna notice?)   

Stack your 2 pieces of lace on top of your elastic and sew both ends. I went back and fourth about 6 times to insure it was strong. 

Cut the ends into a point.

And there you have it! A beautiful lace headband and I made mine for free. :)
