This baby/toddler headband was a custom order- which left me free to get creative in the design process! The headband is made of yellow ribbon that I wove together to create the braided look, and embellished with white flowers, pearls, and antique gold accents like the cute little hearts outside the line of flowers. This headband came out having a whimsical, flower-child-like vibe- which is exactly what I like ; ) – and I just loved making it. In the back, the headband has 3 gold tone buttons that fit into braided & flowered button holes, so that it can be adjusted for 3 different sizes. Honestly, I think the back might be my favorite part.
I absolutely love Halloween– I love all of the decorations, dressing up, the colors, pumpkins…I could go on forever. So, now that it’s finally around the corner, I decided to start making Halloween themed baby & toddler headbands. (They aren’t exclusive to babies and toddlers- really they can be for anyone of any age!) This one below was fun to make because I tried something new with the pendant in the middle. It’s a silver bottle cap, with a picture that I found online and printed on photo paper, and then filled up with a special hardening transparent resin to protect the picture and turn the bottle cap into a sort of bezel. I’ve seen a bunch of ready made pendants like this that I could purchase, but I fell in love with the, as my cousin put it, “tiny baby ghost” picture that I found online, so I decided to do it myself. Now, since I have the resin and the bottle caps (don’t worry I bought ones that were never attached to beer bottles- I thought it was too weird to put a beer bottle cap on a child’s headband…) I can put any picture I want into the bottle cap and make it into a pendant. However, I still just love the baby ghost, so I may have to make a few more of these with different style headbands:

This yellow & ivory flowered baby headband was custom ordered for a very cute little girl. I was excited to get this order because I’d like to continue branching out into headbands for babies and toddlers– especially themed ones for upcoming holidays. I spoke to some of my friends and relatives who have babies and toddlers to find out the best way to design the headband so that it would be easy to put on and take off, stay on once it was on, and be comfortable for the baby wearing it. The elastic in this headband is specifically made for babies– it is super soft and the band is a little thicker which makes it easier to stay in place. I also added a velcro closure in the back to make it easier to put on and take off, and so that it can be adjusted to make it smaller or bigger if the elastic is too big or doesn’t stretch far enough. I just loved making this headband, and I cannot wait to get the chance to make even more! Here are some pictures of the finished product:
