Super Easy and Cute Fabric Headbands


I've been itching to make fabric headbands for a while.  I scoured the internet (O.K., mostly Pinterest) and found this pattern by Jessica.  I loved it at first sight! 

The pattern is super easy, even if you only have minimal sewing skills you should be able to do this project!  It also is a great use of all of those super cute "fat quarters" or other random scraps of pretty fabric lying around.  I used a variety of patterned fabrics and made each one reversible and unique.



As always, I did tweak the pattern a teeny bit.  The first headband (pictured below) that I made I thought was too wide for my head, so I played around with mild width adjustments for all of the subsequent headbands.  


I also followed the link Jessica provided to Mrs. Pea's blog for the child sized headbands.  (I hope I got the name right, my Google Translator only seemed to do a so-so job translating the German.)  I had a bit of trouble with the sizing of this pattern.  My daughter, Catherine, has always had a rather large head.  I added over an inch to the top part and had to add almost three inches of elastic to get this pattern to work for her.  I do like the width of the re-sized headband, but will be playing around to get the pattern just right.   

  
In closing, a Mother & Daughter shot, sporting matching headbands.  


PS: Can you help me reach my goal of reaching 5,000 Facebook fans this summer?  Thank you!!!
