I made this headband from remants of some pants that I turned into shorts. Each leg was just the right amount for this headband, so I made two! The pants were a silk blend, so the headband is very soft and has a nice texture to it. I had some leftover elastic from a skirt I made, so I used that to give it some stretch (the silk doesn’t have much stretch). It fits really well on my head and feels nice. I was so excited to make this because I really love it, and it cost me nothing since everything was recycled.
