Fleece Headband Pattern Ear Warmer tutorial
1 – Cut out Pattern
Print up the pattern (you can get assembly instructions here)
Cut out pattern piece.
Optional – on one end of the band iron a scrap of fusible interfacing to reinforce where you will put your button or button-like hole. See flapper headband slim pattern for picture.
At one end of the headband and using the button as a guide mark the top and bottom of the button. Move one dot a third closer ( the fleece will really stretch since we haven’t reinforced it and we’re not making a button hole).
Draw a straight line between the dots (this will help you make a neater box).
I am feeling lazy so I’m not doing a button hole today. Just make a small box using your guides with a zigzag stitch. Snip a slit in your box. Sew the button to the other side of the headband and your done!
I like to make the flowers removable so you can wash the headband (make build up). Sew a small triangle (like you did for the button only much smaller – see my thumb?). And Cut a slit. Now your flower can slide perfectly into place!
