Note: this will only work with polyester. If you are using another type of fabric, you could try Fray-Check or sew a running stitch 1/4 inch in from the edges before you roll up your fabric.
We’re getting ready for two big events around here. First, a long weekend with family visiting and some good quality time together. Then, starting next week, our entire downstairs wood floor is going to be ripped out and replaced (remember the “water” incident? resolution at last!)
Nevertheless, I’ve been busy with new home projects and I don’t want to leave you hangin’. Some of you have asked about the fraying issue with those super cute headbands we made a few weeks ago. I have the easiest solution for you and the only thing you need is a little flame and about one minute. After a little wear, are your headbands now looking like this?
Just trim down all the frayed strands (they will be less likely to catch fire and leave a charred area on your headband). Then, grab a match/lighter/kitchen torch and just pass your flame along all the edges of the fabric to singe it.
You’ll get the hang of it rather quickly. If you singe it a little too much and get a dark area, just trim it off and try again. This style flower is really quite forgiving. Problem solved! Wasn’t that easy?
And here’s an “in progress” picture for a frame makeover I’ll show you in a bit…I added it to Addie’s room this week and am loving it! Bet you can’t wait to see the finished product!
