Hi Helmar fans! Cathy hosting the blog today and I have an easy and quick idea for making baby headbands. We are expecting our first grandbaby in September and you guessed it, it's a girl. We are beyond excited and I can't wait to dress her in all kinds of cute outfits and coordinating headbands. So many of these little headbands don't look very comfy for the little one and I came across a great Pin on Pinterest that had a great tutorial with upcycled baby headbands. Super soft and super comfy. You can find the link here. I knew these would be perfect with Helmar's Fabric Glue!
First start with a pair of baby pants, these are 0-3 months. I picked them up at the local thrift shop for 25 cents. Pretty good deal for a headband! Cut the elastic band off of the pants either using a rotary cutter or scissors.
Next, cut two strips of fabric from the pants, approximately 1 inch wide.
Tie a knot at the end of one of the pieces.
Start twisting and gluing with Helmar's Fabric glue as you go.
Keep twisting and gluing til you have the size of rolled flower that you want. I added the second piece of fabric from the pants to achieve the look and size that I wanted.
Once you have the rolled flower done simply glue it to the elastic band. I did sew on a button and added a bit of glue to it also, just wanted to make sure that it was super secure. Here you can see it on my adorable model Stella, since our baby girl isn't here yet, she had to step in and do some modeling!
Here's another that I made. I love this one! I am going to try one with denim too. Soon, I will have enough for every outfit she has...lol!
Thanks for joining us today at Helmar.
