If you look at the site, the headband appears, at least in my mind, to be so cute and wearable. I blame the tie dye and gray combo for suckering me in. Still, I somehow conned my mom into helping me scrounge up some t-shirts and join me in the fun....aka help me cut fabric. Love you, mom.
Here's where I went wrong:
1) did not scroll down to the end of tutorial to see how bad directions were
2) picked terrible colors of t-shirts (i don't even wear red)
3) made my mom work really hard on cutting shirts (i get nervous around sharps)
4) did not stop to think that a 8 strand braid is really wide
In the end, I don't think my mom and I have laughed that hard in a long time. Here's a play by play of why I should stick to buying crafts, or maybe do better research next time.
|my mom studying the directions....she's good at this|
|laying it all out|
|still hopeful at this point...|
|what is this?|
|yes...they told me to add the extra single braid...too far in to stop now|
|not what i imagined. at. all.|
you should be scared
If anyone has any legit headband ideas, I would love to share in the fun. My mom may pass on the next one :)
