simple headband



This is about all I can manage to sew these days ... a few hand stitches to make an easy headband.  I unpacked the sewing machine over the weekend to give me some motivation, but for some reason, crafting after midnight doesn't have the allure that it used to.  Bare with me!

very cute! I have made a couple of headbands for my daughter (7 mths old), but I am having a hard time finding elastic in colors other than white or nude....any suggestions? Thanks so much, and love your blog and creative ideas.

Get your rest... you need it! One thing I learned as a parent is with sleep all thing are possible... and I only have one baby to take care of. Take your time getting back into the swing of things. ;)

Cute cute cute!!!! I have a 3 1/2 year old boy and 8 month old girl. Totally understand. I use to love putting him to bed and making a cup of coffee and crafting till 1 or 2 in the morning. Now with 2 kids I am so freaking tired by 9 I just don't have the strength!! Thank you for inspiring me with each and every post!! Kelly

I do love most of the things you make, but I find it soooo hard to understand why put a headband in a baby! she is so cut as is, why try to make her grow early?
cheers,

love the headbands :) my daughter wears one everyday and the amount of compliments I receive are outstanding!

Lisbei said...

She's so cute your little girl with this flower in her (few) hair ... I understand you, with a baby or two, at midnight, a bed is more seductive than everything else ...
Have a good night !

My 2nd baby is now 9 months and I can count the amount of times I have been able to sew on one hand. You're doing good Jill! Super cute.

ladaisi said...

This is so sweet! If I had a baby girl I would definitely buy one! As it is, I've only got a son and my husband is very against me cutseying him up at all - and I do mean in a boyish cutsey way.

mengyun said...

This is SOOOO...... cute!

I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar said...

She is so cute, Jill! I hope you're doing well. Those first few sleepless months are SO hard. Hang in there. I like the headband, too!

Delia said...

I just posted about your fabric high chair.

Cute flower. I like the irregular shaped petals. Very pretty.

Delia said...

Oh and I am with you on sewing lately...my hands are often too full and I am too tired to sew. :)

maddmomma said...

Jill,
I know how you feel. Baby #3 (Charlie) is 2 1/2 months old and I am having the hardest time finding motivation to make anything! Trying to get back in the swing of things. Good luck.

Jill said...

For the elastic, I just cut down a Goodie brand headband - a good newborn head size is about 12 inches.

mami said...

Head Bands said...

So adorable! Your daughter looks like a doll. Anyway, I would also love to make that kind of headband for my one month-old baby girl. :)

AWWWW, I LOVE IT! WHERE DO YOU FIND THE COLORED ELASTIC? I AM IN THE PROCESS OF TURNING SOME OF MY CROCHETED FLOWERS INTO HEADBANDS AND WOULD LOVE MORE COLORFUL ELASTICS!

BTW, YOUR LITTLE ONE IS GORGEOUS! MY HUSBAND AND I JUST HAD OUR 5TH BABY - A LITTLE GIRL AS WELL!
