So I have recently found two really cool tutorials that start with Braids and turn into something magnificent. First was the braided headband tutorial from evaforeva then there was the braided umm "thing" (way cooler then a thing but I don't know what to call it because it could be whatever you want it to be) from A Beautiful Mess. Both are wicked cool tutorials and they both start with braids !
So here is what I have done with these two wonderful tutorials :
Necklace made out of Amy Butler Fabric
Hair Clip out of random pieces of fabric
Earings out of Amy Butler Fabric
Wicked awesome wool yarn double braided headband
That's the headband with the pic of the headbands in the tutorial.
Check out the tutorials because they are so easy and they are so awesome and versatile. They are worth the look for sure.
