Wide Fabric Headband

I am really pleased with how this Fabric Headband turned out. It is a great project for a beginner sewer. I started with pattern from http://www.youcanmakethis.com/info/free/FREE-Fabric-Headband-Sizes-Baby-Adult.htm (you download the PDF file and print it out on your computer). The pattern also comes with a step-by-step tutorial. I modified it a little - they called for velcro to hold the headband together, and I used elastic instead (I thought it'd be easier for my 4 yr old to put on herself). I just put a piece of elastic into the ends of the headband before topstitching. Also, I made the whole headband shorter since I wasn't using velco where it would need to overlap. You could go make this project right now - you just need a scrap of material, velcro or elastic, and about 10-20 minutes.

Super cute headband! I also loved the baby shoes - I tried to comment, but received an error several times and gave up. :o)

Where did you get that ADORABLE fabric? LOL. It did go to good use! I saw Annie Robinson with a headband with that same fabric on Sunday, did you make one for her too?
