Sweet little hair ties...

Last week, Ruby decided that she needed to make head bands....lots of them...one for every outfit! The bands were gorgeous and very sweet and made me think of a tutorial for something similar but a little easier for little kids to make! This little hair elastic is quick to make and oh so sweet! The perfect stash buster and the perfect size for giving as gifts to all of her BFFs

Cut a piece of fabric approx 3.5 inches x 8 inches

Fold it in half with right sides together and give it a good press.

Roughly draw a line from the top corner of the folded edge to the raw edge. Don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect! Do the same at the other end.

Also mark a 2 inch line about halfway down the strip, this will be for turning out!

Time to start sewing! Sew on the angled line then sew with a 1/4 inch seam allowance all the way down to  the bottom angled line. Start and finish with a backstitch.

Dont forget to leave that hole!

Snip off the corners but be careful not to snip the stitching.

Carefully push the fabric right way out. I use a chopstick but you could use a pencil!

Spray with a little starch and iron nice and flat.

Sew up the hole nice and close to the edge.
