Sew a Button Headband Tutorial

Sew a Button Headband {Tutorial}


One of the first things you'll learn about me if you visit my list of tutorials,
is that I LOVE BUTTONS!


And today I would like to share how to make my latest button creation:

How to Sew a Stretchy Button Headband


STEP ONE:
Gather all your supplies.


You will need:
Goody Brand stretchy headband {available at Target}
Needle and thread
Your favorite buttons


Now, pick out the order you want your buttons to be sewn onto your headband.  Pick enough buttons to take up about 2/3 of the total length of your headband. You will only end up sewing on buttons to 2/3 of the headband and leaving the other 1/3 blank.  I suggest this so that buttons don't get caught in your hair when you wear the headband.

STEP TWO:
Thread your needle and begin sewing on your buttons.  I picked the same color thread as my headband {black} so that you wouldn't be able to see the thread.  Bring your needle up through the back side of your headband to begin.


I went through each button hole two times for added support.


Now sew on your next button, again beginning from the underside of the headband. 


Then continue sewing on the remainder of the buttons following the above directions.


Remember to leave about 1/3 of the headband button-less so that your hair won't tangle.


When you have sewed on your last button,
knot off the end and you are done!

And Voila!


Super cute, right!


And there you have it!

Happy Crafting!

Nifty little embellishment! I like a little pop of color. And that's a look I could pull off.

Secretly, I just came over to check out pics of your scrumptious little son again.

I love your headbands.

I saw this on sumo's linky party.

I would love it if you stopped by and linked it up to my Christmas in July linky party. I am spending the month hosting a homemade gift even.

This would make the perfect stocking stuffer.

Hope to see you there.

I think you'll find it's spelt 'voila!', and isn't pronounced like it looks because it's a French word.
