Let’s just put it out there- Piper Jane is bald! Yep, ba-ald. And regardless of whether she is dressed in a ruffles, a dress or head-to-toe pink, people still ask, “How old is HE?”
That is, unless she is wearing a headband. I guess they are the universal symbol indicating “girl.” Which makes them a hot commodity around here since Little Miss Bald requires one every. single. day.
Can you guess what I did during our loooooooooooooong drive to Texas last week? Yep, a full twelve hours of headband crafting. Ok, actually, I didn’t spend the whole twelve hours drive working on headbands.. I talked to Adam a lot… and made some To Do lists as well… and even took pictures for the sewn ruffle how-to. But back to headbands. I made ruffles and more ruffles and then more ruffles. And then I assembled said ruffles into fluffy little headband accoutrements (white, blue, green, and orange are all now part of Piper Jane’s ruffled-headband repertoire).
And then I took a page out of Heidi’s book at Sew.Craft.Create and made some of the Not Martha Dahlias. Well, sort of. I didn’t have fabric-tac adhesive on hand, so I whipped up some sewn versions. Lovely, no?
Also, I seem to have a problem stopping the headband assembly line once I get started, so if you’re pregnant with a girl, assume you’ll be receiving one of these gems from me as a shower gift.
ps- If you’re in the market for headbands, one of our new sponsors, Mama Jill Designs, has GORGEOUS ones (for babies and grown ups, too!). Go check out her shoppe!
