My other daughter wanted a little pouch to keep all her "silly bandz" in, so I quickly sewed up a drawstring tote with a piece of one of the legs. (Just needed to sew up the bottom, fold over the top and sew it over top a piece of ribbon for the drawstring.
Not terribly even, but my girl was happy.
I stared at the remaining pieces on my table and noticed that the waistband looked about the size of a stretchy headband. I trimmed some loose frays, and then made a ruffled flower embellishment. I can't believe how easy these are to make. It's basically circles of material, folded in half, then folded again. Then sewed or hot glued onto a flat circle. Here's a tutorial! I didn't even follow all the steps. I just did one layer of ruffle, and cut out all my circles the same size. No biggie - it doesn't have to be perfect!
Then I sewed a little button on the middle & at the same time sewed it through to the headband. I did this at the kitchen table in the amount of time it took for my girls to drink their hot chocolate & eat their after school snack.
