You can make this sweet heart and ruffle elastic headband in no time!


Supplies Needed:

  • Babyville Boutique Ruffle Elastic (size determined by child’s head measurement)
  • Babyville Boutique Sassy Girl Dot PUL – Two 4” Squares
  • Polyester Fiberfil
  • Feather Boa (enough to fit felt circle)
  • 2 Felt Circles (see pattern)
  • Hot Glue
  • Hand sewing needle
  • Good quality thread, such at Gutermann thread


Instructions:
1. Cut the ruffle elastic so it fits snug around your child's head.  You can hot glue this together in a circle, or you can sew the ends right sides together to form a loop.

2. Cut two hearts from the Sassy Girl Dot PUL squares.  Place hearts right sides together and sew around the edges, leaving about 1/2” open on one of the bottom edges of the heart.  Cut the curves and corners and turn the heart right side out.  Make sure to get the edges all pushed out.  Take some of the polyester fiberfil and stuff the heart to desired thickness.  Hand sew the opening shut using a whipstitch.

3. Hot glue the feather boa around the edge of a felt circle.  Cut off any excess.  Add some hot glue to the back of the PUL heart and glue heart to center of the circle.

4. Hot glue ends of ruffle elastic to the back of felt circle. Hot glue remaining circle on the back of the first, sandwiching the ruffle elastic.  Now the headband it is done and ready to wear!
