upcycled baby headbands

Remember my posting about all the baby clothing that I have been upcycling and sewing into whimsical little creatures? (post here) Well that project has created even more scraps of baby clothing so I decided to put those little scraps to use and make some simple little baby headbands.

When I am cutting up baby clothing (or any clothing for that matter) to upcycle I typically toss out the small pieces and strips and the waistband (or anything with elastic). But for this project I actually made use of those small bits and pieces!

Luckily I found that the waistband of Lucy's "too short" pants actually fits perfectly around her head. This may not always be the case so you could simple just use a piece of brand new elastic- like I used in THIS headband project a while back.

Next, I created rolled fabric flowers with my scraps of fabric and Fabric Fusion fabric glue. Since discovering how to make rolled roses a couple of years ago I have put these flowers to use in SO many projects!!

Last, I sewed a button to the middle.

The result is a SUPER inexpensive (FREE) pretty little headband for baby!
