Vintage sari head band tutorial

We have always loved making things here at Ian Snow's, our mum Jakki used to run a business making clothes from waste, so making, especially with old fabrics is something both my sister and I have been taught from a young age. 

I absolutely love working with scrap fabric as it gives you boundaries - if you set out to design something with all the possibilities available on the market it can sometimes be hard to start, and finish. 

Working with waste fabric means giving new life to resources which could otherwise be thrown out, which is the much more sustainable option! Additionally, I have never seen fabric as beautiful as what is available second hand, for sale as new. 

We have been buying and selling vintage saris for years and since I was a young girl I can remember making fairy fancy dress outfits and all kinds of accessories from them.

We decided to make some tutorial videos on some really simple items you can make from an old vintage sari. 

Below is our sari head band tutorial which involves no sewing at all.

Happy crafting!

Why we say NO to Black Friday

Why we say NO to Black Friday

  As usual, we will not be participating in Black Friday because represents everything that we are not. Black Friday is OVER-CONSUMPTION at it's worst. We don't believe in pushy & impulsive marketing to encourage people to make purchases, purely because an item is cheap and on 'sale'. Don't buy for the...
