Remedied Hair Bands

I love wearing elastic hair bands to keep fly aways and baby hairs out of my face when I work out. I have very fine, slippery hair so most types of hair bands don't stay on my head well.  I had originally gotten a pack of three pastel colors years and years ago to try them out. They worked out pretty well for me.  Then about a year back I figured I'd get more.  I was bummed to find out that they were bigger than the original set that I bought.  The popped right off the back of my head even when just sitting around.  Clearly this wouldn't work if I was running.  I left the hair bands in my drawer because I couldn't bring myself to throw them out. Today I decided that I would try to fix the problem.  One of the new hair bands is the same/similar color to our softball team jersey.  I snipped off the stitched area of the band and sewed it back together.  It worked out perfectly!  Now my hair band fits my head and I didn't waste the $5 I spent on them.  I think I will do this to the rest of the pack too!
