This 5 minute no sew headband is seriously my new favorite thing.
***UPDATE! Thanks for visiting! I have a VIDEO TUTORIAL FOR THESE HEADBANDS NOW! It seems a lot of people are finding this from pinterest. My daughter wears one of these almost everyday since I made them in November 2014! They hold up well in the wash and look adorable. I get compliments on them all the time! It’s funny how simple they are, so much so that I almost didn’t post this but I’m glad other people like it! If you have any questions, please feel free to comment and I’ll get back to you. Also, feel free to take a look around the rest of my site. I have other fun kid ideas, yummy recipes, free printables, etc. Thanks again for stopping by! Now for the 5 minute headband ***
6 – Create a bunny ear.
7 – Loop the other side over the front, under the back and pull through like tying a shoe. This way always feels wrong to me but this way gives me a better looking bow.
8 – Pull together and shape like a bow.
9 – Hold the center knot and pull each side of the bow carefully to be sure things are secure, tight and neat.
10 – Take one of the loose ends and
11 – stuff it into the side of the bow.
12 – Fan out the bow and use the end to make it look more full and hold the shape of the bow. Repeat for the other side.
13 – Adjust the headband and spread out the fabric around your baby/child’s head to cover ears and make everything even since the fabric rolls so much. Then rotate until the bow is where you want it.
Once you have it how you like it, you can just slip it off and slip it back on easily. Adjust as needed and when your baby/child’s head grows you can tie it again to better fit!
I love that this covers her ears. It was one of the things I really wanted in a headband and this worked out much better than I envisioned. It is a thin fabric but it keeps her from being completely exposed in our short time outside when it is a little chilly out and not quite cold enough to need a hat.
These were so simple I whipped out quite a few in the different patterned fabric that I had scraps of.
I seriously love the way they look on my sweet baby girl!
