So I seem to be on a headband kick these days....so here is the pleated headband how-to
First your supplies, you'll need a stretchy headband, felt, fabric of you choice(as you can see i have 3 fabrics pictured i was having a hard time choosing one), and lightweight fusible interfacing.
First you are going to cut out a piece of fabric and interfacing 3"x11.5" iron the
interfacing to the fabric(not pictured)
Then i ironed over both ends a little and also did a tight zig-zag stich on each end.
Next i folded it over
And then i started sewing up one short side across the long side and then i left the other short end open so i could turn it right side out.
Here's how it should look once you turn it right side out and iron it, all nice and pretty :)
After which i eyeballed the pleats(pinning as i went) and then stitched it right down the middle,to hold it together
Next i cut out a piece of felt and sandwiched the headband between the pleat and the piece of felt and glued it down.
I wanted to dress it up a bit and cut out some red felt hearts for the top that i also glued down
Ta-da! you did it! (at least i hope my instructions made sense!)
Next find a model to wear your pretty headband- maybe one that can move her left hand really fast!...
Awww its so easy...especially when i tell her its a princess headband!
I'm going to have to make a couple of these for me!
Don't forget to come back for the headband holder it's going to be AMAZING!!!
