This could almost be a no sew project! It just depends on the style you want to create! This refashion is created from long socks! Just a few snips and some embellishments if you want them and your girls can be stylish and original!

Accessories are my favorite part of Back to School shopping/creating (besides the new supplies – do you love new crayons too?) Instead of buying a bunch of headbands make this one that is INTERCHANGABLE! Yeah! One headband with lots of looks!
