My New Super Power! Sewing Reversible (Superhero) Headbands


I have a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine.

When the kids were little, I made blankets and bibs for them. I thought my sewing adventures were over. But, I decided to make one more blanket to discover that I had lost the cord of sewing machine. I took it as a sign. I also had to hand sew a blanket, but that's another story.

Fast forward several years and my motivation to sew returned.

Out of frustration at the cost of headbands my kid likes, I broke down and bought a cord to my sewing machine. And, discovered all the cool fabric on Etsy.

Part of my motivation is her upcoming birthday. She is having a superhero party and I thought it would be fun to wear a Supergirl headband.

I found the perfect fabric! And, if I didn't screw it up, I could make enough for her best friends.


Before I even cut into the cool fabric, I made a bunch of headbands practicing.


I tried a few patterns and made a bunch of mistakes. I even broke down and bought a rotary blade. It made life so much easier!

Eventually, I found a pattern I liked the best and started cutting the good fabric.


All of my fears ended after I finished the first one. I don't know why I was so freaked out. These are just headbands she'll eventually lose.


I want to do more than just headbands now! And, yes I have more fabric on the way.


I'm not sure if I will make more than headbands. Who knows - maybe I'll try a skirt!
