Felt pinwheel headband


After having two boys in a row I was so elated when the Lord chose to add a little girl into our family. I admit there was something really special about being a Mom of only boys but the addition of a mini me has truly overwhelmed my heart in the best way!

My daughter, Josie is sixteen months old and I love shopping for her but she and has yet to get much
hair on her cute little head. I can not wait for her first pigtails but until then I have had fun creating lots of sweet headbands for her.



For the Spring I made this super quick and easy felt pinwheel headband (this could easily be
made into a barrette or pin as well). Fun for all those sweet flowery dresses and for Easter too!

For this project you will need:
three inch squares of felt
coordinating button
elastic or ribbon for the headband
scissors
needle and thread
and about 15 minutes



1. Start by cutting a slit into each corner of the piece of felt almost to the center.
I used my cutting mat for this but it's really not necessary.

2. Once you have your slits cut take a needle and thread and starting from the back
sew one side of each of the four sections down creating a pinwheel.

3. Once you have the pinwheel formed finish off by adding a coordinating button.

4. I made a headband using some velvet ribbon and measuring Josie's head (18 inches)
and just stitched the ribbon ends together but you could also use a pre-made headband
or elastic as well. Sew the pinwheel onto the headband and your finished!





The girly cuteness gets me every time!!
