I had so much fun creating these sweet "Cowgirl" sets to be delivered as part of our November Project donations! They are super cute and simple to make, so I thought I'd share a tutorial for those of you that might like to give it a try. Ready?
I've started with some of the adorable new Babyville Boutique Ruffle Elastic and Ribbons.
If you are making these for your own child, you will want to start by measuring her head, otherwise, a quick google search for "baby headband measurements" will provide some averages for you to work from. Once you've determined your size, cut the Ruffle Elastic accordingly and sew the cut ends together to create your headband.
Next, you will make your bows. For mine I have used THIS TUTORIAL and made 2 bows for layering.
Once your bows are secured together, cut an extra piece of the Ruffle Elastic 3-5" in length, and use this to tie the bow to the headband, covering the stitching.
Now you are all set! Quick & easy huh? And fun to make! Find a little model to show off your creation and enjoy making another. :)
Here's the second headband I made following the same instructions above.
Using some of the remaining ribbon and Ruffle Elastic, I also made a sweet security blankie to complete my donation sets.
I rolled the little blankies and used the stretchy headbands to wrap around them. I hope the little Cowgirl Princesses that receive these, and their parents, love them! :)
