Today let's celebrate being women...and liking things pink and pretty and flowery. If you've been around my blog recently then you know that I had a little girl in November. She is my second child, the first being a boy. And let me tell you, I am loving having a little girl. I never really had a doll as a little girl. I feel like I finally have one that I can dress up and love!
So, here is a cute little felt flower headband I put together for her. She does have some nice black hair coming in, but it isn't long enough for a clip yet. So, in the meantime we are wearing lots of headbands.
Here's the quick How-To
Supplies: Felt scraps, Ribbon, Elastic, hot glue gun, needle and thread and sewing machine.
First, using your baby's head as a guide, measure a length of ribbon that is slightly bigger than needed to wrap around.
Then, make the flower. Cut a circle of felt. Then, cut a spiral in the circle, starting at the outside edge. Then, take the outside end of the spiral and start wrapping tightly. When the entire spiral is wrapped, use hot glue to glue the center of the spiral to the back of the flower.
Next, sew the flower onto the center of the ribbon. Then, place a piece of elastic between the ends of the ribbon. Fold back the ends of the ribbon and pin in place. Then head to the sewing machine and stitch it in place.
Finally, place headband on a beautiful baby and do a photo shoot!
