Win-It Wednesday: Headbands

Wednesday, 21 May 2008 20:30 by sara

I managed to sew up a couple of Foofanagle's headbands this week; last week's Throwback project. The tutorial was great. Easy to follow, thorough, no steps left me scratching my head.

 
They went together surprisingly quickly, and they weren't nearly as difficult to turn right side out as I feared. I was pretty worried about that part, because the turning is usually my least favorite part of any project. Luckily these went well--the safety pin tip in the tutorial was very helpful.

 
This was the first one I made, and I forgot to topstitch it. I'm okay with that, though. I like how forgiving the project is. So this one came first, and I sort of breezed through a couple of steps. Like, I forget the interfacing, so it doesn't stand up as nicely as some of the others. Luckily, once it's on the head, it looks fine. 

Incidentally, you won't be winning this particular headband, as it was immediately snatched up by my model.  In fact, I had to promise I'd return it to her bedpost tonight so it is there when she wakes up in the morning. So demanding, these models.

 
And the last one I made.

Much sturdier, because I remembered the interfacing.  Well, sort of. I started cutting and realized I didn't have any interfacing on hand. So, I turned to the trusty trick I learned from Bend the Rules Sewing, and used some cotton flannel as interfacing. It worked fine, and I love how this turned out! This fabric is some that I bought from Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, presumably to make a purse. Mostly I bought it because I loved it.

Accordingly, it will be tough to give this one away, because someday it will match a purse that I might make.  Nevertheless, one lucky blog reader will win this headband (or a similar one) next Wednesday.  All you have to do is leave a comment on the blog between now and next Wednesday.

Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I'd like to write like this too - taking time and real effort to make a good article... but what can I say... I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.

Hey - nice blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I'm currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and 'skin' the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.

I completely agree with the above comment, the internet is with a doubt growing into the most important medium of communication across the globe and its due to sites like this that ideas are spreading so quickly.

Great post! I am just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well - resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case.
