Back to School hair accessories

Now that it’s back to school time, I am enjoying using pretty scraps of fabric to make fancy hair ties for my daughter.

The rolled hem feature on the Juki MO2000 overlocker

I really have fallen in love with the JUKI MO2000 Overlocker and seem to be roll hemming anything I can get my hands on!

The thing is, a roll hem is a perfect subtle edge for so many things. We have loved making hankies, napkins and tablecloths recently and with some of the scraps I have been running up a few hair ties for my daughter.

It is one of the simplest things to make, literally a long rectangle, the thickness depending on how much fabric I have. I just ran it through the Juki MO2000 overlocker. That simple. If you want a reminder on the settings of a rolled hem, read our post on making hankies.

Ribbons & Bows

For hair bows my ribbons tend to be thinner so that they sit well. For the hair bands, I used a a thicker and longer piece, that I simply tied round Etta’s head, knotted and tucked the tails in under the side. The joys of these ribbons and bows are that they come together so quickly and effortlessly. It’s like magic. They look adorable and are a lovely way to use scraps and enjoy pretty fabrics a whole lot more!
