Vintage linen and lace, continued....

Following from the posts about using granny's antique stash of linen and lace ("Linen culottes adaptation", Oct 2014, and "Linen top - antique fabric and lace", March 2015).... another make with the fabric left-overs! Will this fabric never end?

Matching hairband. This is copied for size from an existing band, and the base panel conceals a piece of elastic, for ease of wearing. A quick make that only took about an hour and half - and so a short post.

Actually, in case you are worrying about this, I promise that the fabric will come to end. I'm getting down to scraps of the linen now. I just don't like to waste a thing - particularly when it's good quality, and has managed to escape the moth, fading and many other ravages of time. Respect to the cloth!
