Hexcellent Headband PDF Tutorial in The Shop!

Yay, as promised, the Hexcellent Headband Tutorial is now available as a PDF download in the shop!

I thought I'd do something a little different and upload a little taste - screenshot above - of what a customer gets when they purchase the PDF Tutorial. See? It's a very pretty document containing a supplies list, step-by-step instructions, full colour photography, live links, and to top it all off, a printer-friendly version!

I get a lot of satisfaction pulling each PDF tutorial together for the shop. So many different skills come into play: design, crafting, photography, layout, writing, editing, patience, late-night snacking... I truly enjoy the process but it pretty much amazes me how much time, raw emotion and chocolate chip cookies go into each one, truth be told. But seeing that finished PDF on screen... well that is, in two words: FREAKING SWEET! And makes it all worth it.

So, if you missed this particular tutorial during the 7-day "get-it-while-it's-free" stage, let me tell you a little more about it now. The tutorial is a 6-page downloadable document that shows you how to make this cute hexagon headband from some small fabric scraps, interfacing, and a widely available standard elastic headband. It requires access to a computer and printer, but otherwise no special tools are needed. You'll use only scissors, a marker, straight pins, and needle and thread. With guidance, an older child (10 years and up) could make it.

Once again, the Hexcellent Headband Tutorial is available here.

You have yourself a fine day. Me? I'm feeling rather peckish...

    2. I agree - a good looking document. I appreciate the screenshot; otherwise it's hard to visualize what you're getting when buying a PDF tutorial. It looks like you had fun w/ the blocks of color and font choices!

  5. Ah, Michelle, it is beautiful and you should take pride in your excellent design endeavor. So you need more chocolate cookies after all that work? Hahahahaa. Great job.

  6. SO impressed with your screen shot. I think the design is lovely.
