Bootcamp Bonanza Giveaway - Day 1

Starting off our Bootcamp Bonanza are Headbands from Sew Creative By Sara. Sara sells her headbands and many other great items on her Etsy shop. Sara has been sewing part-time for over 35 years and it has become her passion for the past 10 years.

I was thrilled when I received Sara's headbands in the mail last week. They were wrapped so perfectly with a cute little bow. I would have taken a picture but I was so excited that I tore off the ribbon to reveal these three wild and unique headbands. When Sara asked me what type of fabric I wanted I told her I like fabrics that are wild and unique. She did a perfect job picking out the patterns for me!

It was great to finally be able to try out the headbands, from Sew Creative by Sara, this morning at Bootcamp. Please don't judge my appearance in this photo. Just remember that it was 5am and I didn't have any make up on when I took this picture of myself. The headband looks great! I wish I could say the same about me. :) Yikes, I look scary in the morning! (Warning to my sisters. I better not hear from either of you how bad I look in this picture. :) Yes, I know I look bad but I'm not going to put make-up on just to sweat it off. )





I was so impressed with how well this headband worked to hold back the sweat. Sara makes her headbands with terry cloth on the inside and a colorful cotton fabric on the outside and an adjustable Velcro closure in the back. The fit is great because it is adjustable and the way it keeps the sweat out of your eyes is amazing. It's exactly what I need for Bootcamp because let me tell you, I was sweating like I have never sweat before. Sara's headbands are so great that I plan to wear them for every form of exercise I do.



You got me. I wont be wearing Sara's headbands just for the sweat relief. Check out these awesome fabrics she sent me!!! It doesn't hurt that they look cute too.




This one is my favorite! I think I will be wearing it to Bootcamp on Wednesday. It is so me! Look how perfect and cute even her little tags are. Seriously, this woman is talented. I wish I had this kind of talent. I have the ideas but no talent for sewing. I actually broke my sewing machine on the first project I started. I always love to see people like Sara that can put there talent to good use and make things for those of us not so talented in that area.





This is the terrycloth on the inside of the headband.



This picture I just took off of Sara's site. It is another favorite's of mine. It will go with just about anything.


What I love about these bands is that Sara, from Sew Creative by Sara, created them to use while biking. She is an avid biker and needed something that would fit under her helmet and still be able to catch the sweat before it dripped in her eyes. How creative is this woman!?! The best part is that you can use them during while doing any type of exercise or activity. She also uses them while gardening. These headbands are adorable, made well and so, so cute. Check out Sara's other headband's along with matching bike seat covers by clicking here.

Sara has been so sweet to offer one of my readers two of her adorable headbands!
