One of Daniel’s best buddies has gorgeous curly hair that she won’t keep a hair-clip in but her mom told me that she like headbands. I decided to see if I could come up with a few cute headbands that I could make for her. The first one was a simple puffy pink bow. Daniel called her name as soon as he saw it and couldn’t wait to give it to her.
Here is how I made it.
First I cut six 4″ lengths of ribbon from eight different colors of ribbon.
Then I folded the ribbon in half and threaded it onto my needle.
I kept repeating the pattern until I used all the ribbon.
Then pull everything tight and knotted the thread several times.
Fluff out the ribbons.
Then I started working on the band. I used babyville’s yellow fold over elastic that I had measured to the length of her head. I folded over one end slightly to eleminate rough edges and matched the two ends togther.
Then I sewed the ends together.
I put hot glue on the unfinesd ends of the puppy ribbon ball.
Then quickly press it into the seam area of the head band.
Beautiful headband for a beautiful girl!
