Infant Floral Headband Tutorial

Lets make this clear, we do not know what the gender is of our baby, don't want to start rumors! However, since the day we knew we were pregnant with number two we've been under the strong assumption that we're having a girl. Not sure why the hunch, and do hunches really matter, but that's where our head is at!

The whole not knowing hasn't been an issue besides not knowing which kind of name we need to be set on. We've had our girl name settled since before getting married but with the increase of people we know starting to have children, that name was chosen by someone else. Chris isn't bothered but I'm having a harder time with it since the name has felt so unique to me for years now. We've gone back and forth on other girl names but nothing has resonated as deep. When push comes to shove who knows, we'll probably keep with the name we've loved so dearly since we started talking about the kids in our future.

With my nesting and maternal emotions starting to kick into overdrive, the idea of having a sweet headband for our potential darling daughter to sport after birth sounded like a fun project! Please believe that we WILL NOT be disappointed if we have a boy- the idea of having another boy so close to Gabriel's age sounds AMAZING and since both boys would be born the same time in August all clothing hand-me-downs would match up PERFECTLY! 




Below you will find a list of materials used and then a picture tutorial! If you have any questions that are not answered through the photos please do not hesitate to ask!


Materials:
8 circle pieces of patterned fabric 1.5" in diameter
1 circle piece of color coordinating felt 2.5" in diameter
2 circle pieces of neutral colored felt 1.25" in diameter
1/4" elastic 13" long (for newborn)
ornate bead or gem for center
scissors
circle template
hot glue gun 







Glue down one layer of the folded circles then glue down a second layer offset from the first.





This was such a fun little evening project. I'm already working on some others with a different look that I hope to get around to sharing too. As always, you're welcome to check my shop for updates as well!

  2. That's the best part, I feel like the supplies (even if you are the tiniest of crafter) are something just laying around the house!
