Here is a quick tutorial on how to make headbands for your little girl. The best part about these is you are not married to a specific bow giving you a little more creativity during the “dress up” process of your little one! Cause if you are anything like me picking out an outfit for your little girl is just as fun as when you dressed up your barbie when you were 6 years old!
Here are the stars of the show and what you need to make the headbands:
Hot glue, 5/8 fold elastic in assorted colors, needle and thread.
Measure out your elastic:
0-3 months: 13″
3-6 months: 15″
6 months+ : 16″
Adult : 17″
Place shiny sides together and sew the ends together. It doesn’t need to be pretty because you will be covering it up. Just needs to be good enough to hold it together and get the job done!
After you have it all sewn up, to ensure those stitches stay stitched place put a little glue over the entire seam. Once you have done that take a small piece of the elastic (just enough to wrap around and cover the stitched area). Glue one side down wrap the elastic around and secure it with glue.
And you have done it! Now you can customize each headband with any bow! These ended up costing me .56 cents a piece to make and 3 hours of my time! PLUS I even have enough left over to make a second set if I wanted to… So really they cost .28 cents!
Would have included a picture Avery wearing them but by the time I got these done she was in bed! And keeping her up late for my own selfish blogging needs seemed irresponsible… #parentproblems.
Enjoy your own headband making, Cheers!
