Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

These headbands are super cute and practical because you can customize their fit! Lovely patterns and ideas as well. I especially like the 10-minute crochet headband. Thank you!

Thanks for this collection! I pretty much have to make my own because store bought ones either hurt or don't stay on!

I love the look of headbands, but sometimes the plastic ones can give me a headache after a few hours. Crocheted headbands are my all-time favorite because they are soft and stretch to the size of your head. They're so comfy!

I love the "Garden of Eden Headband." My friend's daughter would look so cute wearing it this spring.

A headband out of an old t-shirt? That actually sounds like an amazing way to hold on to your favorite shirt for just a little while longer. To answer your question, though, I think headbands can be both... but most err on the side of being the perfect solution to a bad hair day.

The Fun Flapper Crochet Headband is super cute. Would make a great Christmas gift. Thanks for the idea!

I had actually planned on crocheting a winter headband this weekend. My favorite is the Fun Flapper I might give it a try )

Hi SaraR, We'd love to see a photo if you make it! - Kaylee, Editor of FaveCrafts

I absolutely adore the fun flapper crochet headband!
