The headband is still soft and flexible which will make it comfortable to wear. Full diy instructions are below.
Time: 45 minutes
Center the lace over the felt. Cut enough lace to come down to the base of your child’s (or your!) skull. I cut 16″ for my daughter. The felt I had was in 12″ long.
Continue along the length of the lace, making your stitches as consistent as possible with whatever lace pattern you have. (e.g. it doesn’t matter how you do it, as long as you do it the same way.)
Tack down the felt on each side as well.
Your piece should look something like this.
Take the ends, and pucker them with a tuck in the middle (like a folded fan).
Stitch that gather together. I went back and forth many times.
Match your ends up to make the headband symmetrical, and repeat on the other side.
