D-I-Y Tuesday : Braid within a braid headband

Tuesday, June 5, 2012
Hi Guys ! I'm so proud of myself for following through with this week by week series. Today i bring to you a very interesting Braid idea . Its called "A braid within a braid" because its two braids in one. With that being said , you will need :
  • A pair of scissors
  • Fabric
  • Needle and Thread


Step 1

Cut three pieces of fabric into strips as shown below. 







Step 2

Do a basic braid/plait . Be sure to get different colours of fabric so that they pop. Sew the loose tops parts together , so that your braid will of course be in place , do the same for the end. (Don't mind my finger .. as I've said before , I'm a "chronic nail biter").








Step 3

The braid you just created will serve as the third part of the second braid you are about to do. So simply create another braid using your first braid as a part of it.









Step 4

Sew the tops and ends of this big braid together and you are done! Wear your new braid with your favorite outfits.





This is absolutely quick , simple and of course inexpensive to do. Have fun and get creative with it. You can add all sorts of embellishments. I hope that i have inspired at least ONE person to be creative .
