Tutorial - Easy Baby Hairband and Sandals Set

We received a lot of requests on how to make Baby Hairband and Sandals. We sell Completed Hairbands in our shop but most moms prefer to buy Elastic Trims and Ribbons or Flowers to make their own.
Items that are handmade ourselves are more satisfying and pleasing.

You need :
1mtr Elastic Trim
3pc Flowers
small piece of Felt
Glue and a Toothpick or Thread and Needle

First, measure the size of baby foot and ankle. Subtract 10cm to make allowance for stretch.
I cut 2 pieces of 25cm Elastic. Cut 4 pieces of Felt measuring 2cm x 3cm.

Fold the Elastic Trim into a figure-8 as shown. Apply some Glue at the join or sew with thread and needle.

Now glue the Felt strips to the Front and Back to secure the join area.

For the Hairband, cut Elastic Trim to 35cm and glue the join together. Cut another piece of Elastic Trim to 2cm to wrap around join area if you wish to attach Flower to Single Prong Clip.

Alternatively, you can glue the Flower to the Elastic Hairband at the join area and glue a strip at the back to secure.
