I have seen ruffles EVERYWHERE lately! I saw a darling ruffle headband at Target and thought I could totally make my own. Here it is!
Here’s how to make it:
|Supplies: About an 1/8 yard of fabric, matching felt, hot glue gun, needle, matching thread, scissors & a headband!|
|Cut your fabric into 2″x2″ squares. I made about 40 for my headband, but if you want a looser ruffle you could do less.|
|Round the corners of all of your squares. Cut a few at a time to save time!|
|Cut two identical pieces of felt. Mine were about 4″ long x 1″ wide.|
|Take a square and fold it up, then hold onto the tip in the center.|
|Add another square underneath it and fold it up similarly so the two squares are stacked on top of each other.|
|Take your threaded needle and run it through the tip of the two squares and stitch it to the end of one strip of felt.|
|Continue to add ruffles until you get it as full and thick as you would like!|
|The back of the ruffle strip might look a little crazy but that is okay! Place hot glue on each piece of felt.|
|Attach felt strips to headband……|
|Super easy and super ruffly!|
I really liked how it turned out, but next time I would do a few things differently! I would make my squares a little bit smaller so my ruffle wasn’t so tall (I get nervous about trying new things sometimes!) and I would make my felt strips a little shorter so the ruffle was more on one side rather than getting so close to the middle….if that make sense…. Anyway, happy head banding!
