On Friday I participated in the open house at Quilt Quilt Quilt in Sandy Utah. I was one of several people selling patterns and showing a quick demonstration. While my demonstration had nothing to do with quilting, many people wanted to see how to make this quick, cute headband. So, I promised that I'd post it on my blog!
|The Killer Cute, Quick Headband|
|Using the template below, cut a piece of single sided-fusible interfacing|
|Iron the interfacing onto a piece of fabric using guidelines from the interfacing package. Trim the fabric to within 1/2" of the interfacing|
|Turn the headband right side out, using the ribbons to pull the ends through. Topstitch along the edge of the headband to close the seam, or hand-stitch the opening closed.|
|Voila! Your headband is ready to wear!|
|Secure the headband by slipping one of the long ribbons through the loop and cinching it snug around the head. Using both of the ribbons, tie a bow in the back or on the side.|
|The best headband ever! This one was made using "Texture Magic" on the fabric before cutting. Pretty cute, huh?|

I'm excited to be involved with a new quilt club that a few of my friends and I have created called, "Sweet Dreams". Our purpose is to meet monthly and make quilts for children who have had devastating illness or injury beset them. Check out the link to our blog: http://quiltsbysweetdreams.blogspot.com if you'd like to be involved or know of a child that could use one of our quilts!
