DIY JERSEY BABY HEADBAND

This tutorial is easy peasy! And it only takes about 15 minutes to make!

Here’s what you will need to get started:

-An old t-shirt you don’t mind cutting up (or any jersey fabric).  I suggest finding a jersey knit with a bit more “give”.  It’s a little harder to handle, but will make for a more comfy fit on your baby’s head.

-a needle and some thread

-fabric scissors

-hot glue gun

1. Measure your baby’s head. Cut a strip of fabric that is just barely shorter than her head circumference, since the fabric will stretch.  The width is up to you.  I cut mine at about 2 1/2″ wide.  And no need to make it perfect!  The fabric edges roll and can easily be tucked under when the headband is worn.

2. Thread your needle and overlap your fabric ends.  Sew them together with a loose stitch.

3.  Cinch the fabric tight and knot it at the end.  Creating a secure gathered center.

4.  Cut out a handful of circles ranging from 3″ being your largest to 1″ being your smallest.  I found that 8 worked well.

5. Stack the circles on top of one anther beginning with the largest and ending with the smallest.

6. Take your needle and thread through the center of your circle stack a few times.  Pinch the circles together from the bottom so they appear to form a flower bud.  Then thread through the bottom (as many times as you want) until you feel like the bud looks right.  There was no specific method to my stitching.

7.  Now all you have to do is use your glue gun to secure the bud onto the headband (in the center of the “cinch”).  Or, if you don’t have a glue gun, you can always just hand stitch the bud to the band as well.  And there you have it.  Fini!

 

I hope you guys have fun with this one!  If you try it out, post it on your blog and send me the link.  Or just forward me a photo!  I’d love to check it out!

    Amazing DIY!!!
    Do you think it will also work without glue Gun? Like stitching the Flowers on the hEadband? ;)
    Love your Blog!

      For sure Stephanie! The glue gun is probably just a little easier, but stitching it down would totally work.

    I love this! So cute! I kinda want to make one for myself, but I think I’m a little to old. Haha. I am not going to lie I might still try to pull it off, but I could never be as cute as Rylee is!

      Ya, I would say a 1/2″ to an inch depending on how stretchy your fabric is. The more stretchy, the more you can cut down.

    This is an amazing, easy to follow headband! I added a button to the middle of the flower; it turned out super cute!

    Adorable! Do you mean you do a gathering stitch as step #2 when you overlap the ends? Just curious how you did that. Thanks for the tutorial!

    Seeing Radcliffe break away from his role as Wizard Harry Potter was interesting, but this movie just goes to show how well he can act, and what he can pull
    off. So, it better for all of us to watch movies free online
    and have a pleasure filled experience of all of our favorite movies.
    We were so taken by how unique this screen play by Christopher and Jonathan Nolen was
    we went back with my husband to watch it a second time.

    With these changes, we want to give Annie’s lane opponents some more room to breathe
    against her early threat, but we’ve given Tibbers more late game playtime to compensate.
    Of all the strategy RPGs on the PS2 (including this games predecessor
    Disgaea 1), Disgaea 2 had the best characters, funniest story, and most balanced game
    play without too much grinding. Then climb to the second elevator and do ledge hangs all the way to the top.
