A real time photo of our house right now would include a plethora of craft items and stacks of floral fabrics. Being snowed in this past week has brought out the crafty side, but I have to share a secret - I'm not a fan of crafts that take days to make. I love sewing, but I can hardly get through bigger projects so these five minute headbands have been my go to in preparing for Charlie.
I have a lot of floral clothing for her, but wanted something a little delicate and easy to pair with the one million patterns of clothing I have for her. I came up with a ruffled headband which can be paired with casual clothing and her fancier outfits.

With your sewing machine, set your tension to low and your stitch length to the longest setting. Stitch your fabric right down the middle. It should create a loose stitch. Pull the bobbin thread to create the 'ruffle.' I pulled mine as tight as I could.
Tie both ends with a small knot to keep the ruffle in place. Trim any excess. Tack the ruffle to the headband on both ends and in the middle. Heat up your glue gun and add pearls to the center.
I'm excited to make more of these, layer up the ruffles, add small flowers, and try out different fabrics. I would love to see how your headbands turn out!
