Does your doll's hair frou wardrobe need a little spicing up? This cute and easy headband might be just the ticket!
It's designed to fit any doll whose head measurement is between 11 1/2" and 12" around.
All you need is a little bit of cord, some elastic and ribbon, and a willingness to sew two tiny seams. Oh yes, and a hot glue gun :D
Any small-ish round cord will do nicely; we used a braided polyester cord as well as some rattail cording. Both are pretty easy to find... and not very expensive!
First: tie the two pieces of cord into a knot, as shown.
Once you have the knot formed, gently pull it tight, being sure to keep the cord ends even!
If you're using a sewing machine, sewing the cords and elastic all at once can be tricky. To make it easier, sew the two cords together first, then sew the elastic over top. If, on the other hand, you're hand-sewing, you should have no trouble at all!
Now it's time to give your new headband a test-run!
These work up so fast, you can make one for all your friends! Or, better yet, have a party and let all your guests make one for themselves... the options are endless!
