Ever since i posted my baby bow headband tutorial and free pattern, i have had so so so many requests for an adult version. So i made one! YAY! I’ve updated the pattern to include 3 sizes: baby, child and adult. I really really hope you enjoy it!
If you’d like to make your own headband enter your email address below, and your FREE sewing pattern will be delivered right to your inbox!
Then follow these instructions:
1// Print off the pattern & tape together. I’ve provided the pattern in three sizes: baby (works perfectly for my baby bird, i first made it when she was 5 mths and at 7mths this size is still perfect) and child (works perfectly for my 6 year old honey bunny), and adult.
2// You are going to need some stretchy fabric (the stretchier the better), you could even use an old tshirt! Fold your fabric perpendicular to the grain (the pattern should run along the stretchiest part of the fabric). Place pattern on fold & cut out.
3// With right sides together sew 1/4? all the way round leaving a small gap in your stitches as indicated on the pattern piece. You can use either a zig zag stitch on a regular machine or a serger/overlocker.
4// Turn your headband the right way round by pushing through the gap in your sewing. No need to close this hole we are going to hide it!
5// Now tie a knot, and adjust to fit (the gap in your sewing should be hidden in the knot now).
