But that braiding stuff blew my mind (and I'm used to reading technical stuff!).
I told my husband I was going to end up with a million of pink/green/brown/beige headbands! it's all I could do. LOL
Laura - know what I did? The first one I made took me an hour and a half! The second one took me that long because I kept rewriting the directions. For me, I numbered the ribbon instead of using colors. 1, 2, 3, 4 and where it went made more sense to me than the colors. The colors had no system, lol! If nothing interupts me, I can do one in about 15 to 20 minutes - but something always interupts me! Thank goodness for clothespins!
