I thought my sheep and angel costumes just might sit around until I needed them next Christmas (or Halloween--hmmm...). Surprise, surprise! I think having my goal out in the open is doing wonders for getting some of this stuff done. I guess making you aware is making me more aware.

All you do is make a fabric tube, iron it flat and turn in the short edges. Sew each end of a short piece of elastic into each tube end. Done! If you made it too short, you can always splice a piece of elastic into your elastic--it should all be covered by your child's hair. If you made it too long, you can just cut out a section of elastic and sew the two ends together one on top of the other. Very easy!
