I bought a cute outfit for Baby Girl, and I wanted a headband that would match. I figured I would go ahead and make her a headband myself, using felt and a ready-made stretch headband. I had Wining Husband take me to Michaels so that I could pick up my supplies.
I used the following supplies to make the headband:
- Green felt
- White headband
- Embroidery floss
- Glitter glue
- White button
The first thing I did after purchasing the supplies needed for making Baby Girl’s headband was fold over part of the felt about two-inches in; I wanted the 4-leaf clover to be large. I then cut out four hearts from the felt. Then, I used part of the scrap material from between the hearts I cut out as a stem, and trimmed it appropriately. Finally, I cut out a large circle that would form a base for the 4-leaf clover.
After cutting out the pieces, I then sewed each to the large circle.
Once the 4-leaf clover was sewn together, I decorated it with the glitter glue. However, after constructing the headband, I realized, I probably should have used the glitter glue last. Nevertheless, I outlined the leaves and dotted the middle of the leaves.
Once the clover dried, I cut out another circle from the fabric. I then used the button and the second circle to attach the clover to the baby headband.
Finally, I used some blue glitter glue over the button to make it sparkle (and to cover my stitches. I am in love with the final product – AND she looks so cute in it, doesn’t she?
