It’s that time of year again…Dance competition season!!!! It’s so close I can taste it. Well, maybe that is just a side effect of smelling too much E600 glue this time of year. The studio I work for is heading out to the first competition this weekend, and finishing touches are being placed on dances and on costumes. I think all dances need a headpiece of some sort. The costume never seems totally complete without a little extra something for the hair. Lucky for me, my boss agrees and all dances have them. I have been making a bunch of headpieces in the past weeks, but I was working on some really cute ones today. The dance is called “Rock the Boat” and has a nautical/boat/cruise theme.
Lycra (that matches the costume) and felt all cut out and ready to glue.
These gold anchor buttons are like buried treasure on my kitchen floor.
The finished product! I think they are super cute.
I cut out a rectangle from felt and then wrapped the lycra around the felt and attached it with a hot glue. I then made a ruffle and hot glued in to the side. Lastly I glued the 3 buttons down the front. Now I just have 21 more to finish.
Wish us luck this weekend! I’m already proud of all the dancers.
