So Sweet Headband Tutorial

Headband Sewing Tutorial: So Sweet headband
I posted this tutorial as a guest post over at Train To Crazy. Re-posting it here in case you missed it first time around.

I made this So Sweet Headband for my daughter for the Valentines Day. Here's what you need to make one for your sweetie:


  • 1/4 inch wide red elastic - 12.5 inches
  • Hot pink felt - 3 inch square ( cut a heart shape from this, the heart I cut was about 2 inches)
  • White Felt - 4 inch square ( cut a heart shape bigger than the pink one from this, the heart I cut was about 2.5 inches )
  • Small white button - 1
  • Threads - Red and White


Sew both the ends of elastic together by overlapping them half an inch. Reinforce his seam by sewing multiple times. I used a very narrow and small zigzag for extra strength. Don't worry if it looks shabby at this point, it will be concealed later on.


Place the bigger white heart beneath the joint in the headband.


Place the smaller pink heart over the headband such that the joint gets sandwiched between the two hearts.


Place a small white button on top of all the layers such that it sits on the headband. Hand-sew the button in place by inserting the thread through all the layers and going from one hole to the other multiple times.

Sew running stitches with white thread along the boundary of smaller heart.


Sew running stitches with Red/Pink thread along the boundary of bigger heart.


And you're done! Now go put it on the cutest kid around.
