These are my last items I made for that huge project I was working on. Now that I look at all the pictures I keep thinking that it wasn’t that big of a project, it just took me forever to finish. Then I remember, I had almost double of each fabric. One for a gift and one for Gretchen :). These were really easy to make. I just took long strips of fabric, about 1 1/2 times the size of baby’s head and about 3-4 inches wide. Sew that length wise and turn. it’s really easy to turn if you put a safety pin on one side and push it through. For the bows I cut out 3 rectangles for each headband, about 3, 4, and 4 1/2 inches lengthwise and about 4 inches width wise. I’m just guessing from memory, so if you’d like to make these let me know and I can give you better measurements. I sewed almost all the way around these and left a space to turn right side out. Then I ironed all the bows so they’d lay nice. I then measured baby’s head, and cut enough elastic and put through the headband part and sewed, then overlapped the headband fabric a little bit and sewed shut. I took 3 bow pieces and where I sewed the headband shut, I sewed on the bow. I took a small piece of extra fabric folded it, so it wouldn’t fray, wrapped around the bow part and hand sewed. A lot of steps, but super simple.
Some of these turned out so much cuter than other ones, I think some headbands ended up wider than other ones.
