STARS and STRIPES HEADBAND

I originally designed this free summer headband crochet pattern when we were on a camping trip on windy Santa Fe, New Mexico. My hair, even short as it is, was unruly and I needed a quick solution. So, I whipped up a headband and….ta da…problem solved!

So, when it was time create a quick and easy project for 4th of July, I pulled this from my bag of tricks and wrote up the pattern for you…added some stars for a patriotic touch and, there you have it, the Stars and Stripes Summer Headband.

And….for the perfect finish to the whole project, it’s being modeled, here, by my friend’s precious baby, Hannah.
