My daughters got invited to a Birthday party for a friend over the summer. We went shopping for her present from the girls but I just had to make her something a little more personal and from the heart. It took me a while to figure out what it was that I wanted to do. Either something crocheted or something sewn. Around that same time, I got a newsletter from Create Kids Couture with a cute little free pattern in it…. a Retro Headband! I knew that it would be the perfect little thing for her!
After getting some color preferences from her Mom, I decided to make it double sided so that it would be a little more versatile. I also wanted to make two bows to go with it so that there would even more ways to wear it!
This pattern was the first one that I have ever done in this style. I am used to doing the Tissue Paper patterns that I was taught on. To be honest I was a little worried about it since you have to print it out with your printer. But as long as you make sure that you print the file at 100% and not fitted to the page you are fine. That’s the way that I always print anyways so I didn’t really have anything to worry about.
Once I had all the pieces cut the assembly was really easy. CKC writes out their patterns perfectly and in great detail.
Needless to say it was a big hit and she looked adorable in her new headband! I can’t wait to make more and it totally got me hooked on Create Kids Couture patterns! I have a few things waiting in the works as we speak. So, be sure to come back and check for more items sewn using their patterns!
Here are a few pictures of my finished piece!
Make sure you check out their website as well as their facebook! They have some great patterns for all sizes and genders!
