Alright...It's July!!! Do you know what that means? That's right! It's time for the promised headband tutorials! I'm kicking off this series with this baby headband this week, but I'll be back with a new tutorial/pattern for different headbands next week and the week after.
Alright, so what's this week's tutorial all about? Well, I totally love all of the felt flower headbands that you see all over Pinterest. I actually planned out making this headband two years ago--right before my then baby's baptism! But alas, it didn't happen. Well, better late than never I guess! The good news is that not only did I finally get around to making it, but I also wrote up a tutorial so that you can make your own.
This size is great for babies, but if your ribbon is supper stretchy it might even fit a preschooler too--it fits my 4 year old!
Alright, ready to get started?
You'll need 12.5 inches of ribbon--it's very stretchy. I'm actually not sure if "ribbon" is the right word, but I found it where you can buy ribbon by the yard at JoAnns. I used a headband my kids wore at about 4 months as a guide, but I think this ribbon was a bit more stretchy. It even fits my 4 year old!
You'll also need some felt and a needle and thread.
Making a felt flower is really easy. You'l just need to start with a spiral like this, which you can either just make on your own-it's really easy to just make a circle and cut around to make a circle, or buy a template online (such as through the silhouette store).
I secured my flowers buy just repeatedly sewing through the middle of the curled up flower.
All finished! Wasn't that easy?
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Don't forget to follow Snugglebug University so that you don't miss out on more tutorials, including the rest of the headband series!
