Right before I had my youngest daughter, a sweet friend (Shalyn) dropped off a bunch of homemade baby headbands. I fell in love with them immediately! I got to work and made my own pattern. I had so much fun making these headbands. With Shalyn’s blessing, I decided to post this tutorial for everyone.

All you need is faux leather and pantyhose to make the no-sew headbands. If you’d like to add a little bit of sparkle to the bows, the glitter material is made out of stretched canvas. I was able to find all of these materials at our local craft store, Hobby Lobby. The glitter canvas and faux leather is made by the Ribbon Boutique and is exclusive at Hobby Lobby. You can find it by following the link below and searching for “Glitter Canvas Ribbon” and “faux leather ribbon”.
I have also used other materials such as felt and vinyl. The biggest thing you need to look for in material is that the edge will not fray once you cut it. To save money you can also use an old pantyhose from your closest.
Download the pattern and cut out each of the three shapes. Trace the patterns of the bow onto the faux leather. Cut out each shape. Be careful when cutting to cut inside of the line, so the lines do not show on the bows.

Using a hot glue gun, glue the sides of shape 1 from the pattern down in the middle.
Glue a line that is approximately about 1/2″ wide across shape 2 of the pattern. Attach the backside of shape 1 to shape 2.
Cut the pantyhose into 1 inch strips. Glue the pantyhose to the back of the bow.
Place a drop of glue in the middle of the back of the bow on top of the pantyhose. Attach shape 3 to the to the back of the bow. Flip the bow so the front of the bow is facing you and continue to glue shape 3 until is goes around the pantyhose and bow. Depending on how thick your material is, you might need to trim the edge so that it hides underneath the bow.
