Check out this cute ponytail holder and headband. So easy and inexpensive to make. What little girl wouldn't love these? Makes me wish I had long hair again : )

  • Corduroy button
  • Sizzix Big Shot
  • Scallop Circle #2 Bigz die
  • Fabric
  • Needle and thread
  • Ponytail elastic
  1. Die cut 10 large scallop circles using Big Shot and Scallop Circles #2 Bigz die. Cut off eight of the scallops from each scallop circle. Gather together across the flat side about 1/4" from edge, gathering all ten circles on the same double-thread. Tie off.
  2. Die cut 10 small scallop circles using Big Shot and Scallop Circles #2 Bigz die. Gather the circles across three of the scallops on the same double-thread. Tie off.
  3. To cover Corduroy button, die cut a small scallop circle, then cut off all scallops. Gather the fabric around the edge, place button in the middle, then gather up threads and tie off.
  4. Attach ponytail elastic to back, then sew through all layers of fabric (including fabric around button), so fabric layers are connected to elastic.
