I’m a girly Mom of a girl which means I want lots of girly things for her. Especially if she’s anything like I was from age five to fourteen, she will hate all things girly. I’ve got to enjoy it while I still have control over her wardrobe. The only thing is that it’s kind of stupid to spend a lot of money on baby clothes and accessories. They grow so fast and they only wear the cute accessories for 15 minutes at a time. As much as I love finding matching bows, socks and headbands it’s a little hard to make myself cough up the money when she hardly wears it long enough to get it on Instagram. This is why I found a solution to this very silly problem.
Pinterest is full of easy tutorials for all things baby. Turns out it is crazy easy to make headbands, bows and barefoot sandals. I looked up a few of the easiest ones, ran to Joann’s, stalked up on crafty things and spent Saturday night being thrifty and crafty. It took me a about an hour, maybe two, to make 4 headbands and 2 pairs of barefoot sandals. SO easy.
You can use any type of fabric flower. I grabbed lots of chiffon flowers and then some pretty fabric ones they had in the scrapbooking section.
Okay, so technically the first step is to measure the elastic around your baby’s head.
The chiffon flowers have a lot of extra material on the back you can trim off. For this headband I used one flower from each color.
Obviously, I can’t cut perfect circles, but whatever.
Tada! I’ll post some more very easy tutorial soon, including how to make barefoot sandals!
