Baby Outfit with Headband

April Craft Destash - Baby Outfit with Headband from www.thisautoimmunelife.com

Materials:

Stretchy headband
15 inches of 1 ½ inch wide ribbon
Fancy button
Iron on vinyl
Baby shorts and t-shirt

I had everything I needed for this project so it didn’t cost me any additional money although the rules for the challenge allow for an additional $10 to be spent. I had purchased the baby shorts and t-shirt on clearance at Kohl’s before Christmas. (The t-shirt already had the saying on it). I think all together they were $4. I had the stretchy headband left over from a package of 2 that I had purchased for another project. The ribbon, button and vinyl were all in my craft “stash”. 

For the headband:

  1. Cut the ribbon into 3 inch sections. 
  2. Thread a needle and sew a running stitch around 3 edges of the ribbon. Don’t cut the thread.
  3. Pull the thread to gather the ribbon.
  4. Keeping the thread connected to the first piece of ribbon, sew a running stitch around the second piece of ribbon.
  5. Continue with the rest of the ribbon pieces so that they are all gathered and connected.
  6. Connect the first piece of ribbon to the last piece of ribbon with the thread then knot the thread.
  7. Use the thread to attach the ribbon bow to the stretchy headband.
  8. Use hot glue to glue the ribbon the headband to make sure it is secure. Then glue the fancy button on top.

For the outfit I just used Cricut Design Space to design what I wanted her name to look like. Then I used my Cricut to cut it out. I don’t have a heat press so a great friend of mine  🙂 used hers to press it on to the shorts. Here is a copy of the file in Cricut Design Space. I actually used three different fonts to create the name – Heartbreaker, Amastery and Harrington.

What do you plan to make from your current “stash”?

  1. Oh my goodness. So adorable!

  2. That is the sweetest little outfit and headband. I love the color!

  3. Roseann, that’s adorable! I see what you’re showing us how to do…it’s like making a fabric yo yo with a twist. I love to make fabric yo yos. You can use them to decorate absolutely anything, and it looks so sweet as a baby headband. Love that soft lavender too.

  4. So adorable! I have no need for a baby outfit right now but will certainly keep this saying in mind when a new baby comes along in the extended family. Thanks for sharing a great project.

  8. Awwww. This is super! What a good use of all the things you had on hand to create a very special gift. I would have loved this for my babies, I imagine this would have been a hit with Ellie’s parents.
