Disclaimer: I did this in sitting in bed watching TV about 11pm last night. Please excuse my wrinkly sheets & the serious lack of any type of quality to the photos.I intend on making this again and promise to put more effort into presentation. ;)
- Needle & Thread
- Ribbon about 17" long (if you read really big books you might want to allow a couple extra inches)
- Child's hairband
Step 1: Place hairbow on the inside of one end of the ribbon and fold the ribbon over enough to cover the band.
Step 2: Sew the ribbon fold to secure the hairband. (Confession: I don't know how to sew and even I did it.)
Step 3: On the other end of the ribbon, fold the fabric down the backside. When you sew the button on, it creates a neat edge. Tip: Make the fold slightly larger than the button.
Step 4: Sew on the button. Here you can see that I obviously did not follow my own advice and didn't make my fold large enough. It looks better when there is a slight gap above the button.
Once all that is done...well, your done!
Overall, it took about about 10-15 minutes to complete this. As I said, simple & cute.
