    What a fun look for spring, Shirley! My computer’s speakers don’t work, so I can only watch videos; would you mind telling me how many times you folded the tulle over onto itself–or maybe it would be easier to tell me how many inches wide it was after folding it? It looks as if it’s about 3 inches, but I can’t be sure.

    Thank you for sharing your idea for a sweet and easy-to-make (yay!) headband! xoxo

      Hi Pat! Thank you so much! I am sorry about your speakers…major bummer! The size of Shirley’s bow is 4 inches. She used the following formula to determine how much tulle to use: (however long you want your headband to be x 12) + 1 = length to cut tulle. So, in Shirley’s case she cut her tulle at 13 inches. Then she cut 8 pieces of 13 inch stripes to achieve her desired thickness. Before she started stitching her tulle; however, she actually ended up trimming about an 1 1/2 inches off the edge of her tulle so it wouldn’t be as thick as the tulle itself. I hope this helps. Thank you again Pat and good luck with this fun headband! Michelle 🙂

        Thanks for the information, Michelle! I’m not sure I understand the part about trimming an inch-and-a-half or so off the edge of the tulle. Which edge–the 13-inch one or the 4-inch one? I’ll watch the video again and see if it makes sense now that I have more information.

        I don’t think I’m ever going to get my speakers fixed or replaced.: ( A Certain Person Who Lives with Me doesn’t seem to understand how often I “need” to watch (and listen to!!!) videos online. Of course, the speakers in *his* laptop work just fine! He even wears headphones! Grrr.

          Hi Pat! You are very welcome. Shirley actually trimmed the inch-and-a-half off of the 13 inch edge. I am sorry I didn’t make that very clear. Thank you for your question, so I could clear that up! Good luck with your speakers and with your Certain Person! Hehe! Have a wonderful day and thank you again! Michelle 🙂

            Thanks, Michelle! This is such a lovely headband–the delicate ruffled tulle is perfect for spring and summer outfits and dresses, and the pearls add a sweet girly touch.

            I appreciate your helpful responses to my questions… and your sympathy about my silent videos! xoxo
