April Craft Destash – Baby Outfit with Headband
Baby Outfit with Headband
15 inches of 1 ½ inch wide ribbon
Iron on vinyl
Baby shorts and t-shirt
I had everything I needed for this project so it didn’t cost me any additional money although the rules for the challenge allow for an additional $10 to be spent. I had purchased the baby shorts and t-shirt on clearance at Kohl’s before Christmas. (The t-shirt already had the saying on it). I think all together they were $4. I had the stretchy headband left over from a package of 2 that I had purchased for another project. The ribbon, button and vinyl were all in my craft “stash”.
For the headband:
- Cut the ribbon into 3 inch sections.
- Thread a needle and sew a running stitch around 3 edges of the ribbon. Don’t cut the thread.
- Pull the thread to gather the ribbon.
- Keeping the thread connected to the first piece of ribbon, sew a running stitch around the second piece of ribbon.
- Continue with the rest of the ribbon pieces so that they are all gathered and connected.
- Connect the first piece of ribbon to the last piece of ribbon with the thread then knot the thread.
- Use the thread to attach the ribbon bow to the stretchy headband.
- Use hot glue to glue the ribbon the headband to make sure it is secure. Then glue the fancy button on top.
For the outfit I just used Cricut Design Space to design what I wanted her name to look like. Then I used my Cricut to cut it out. I don’t have a heat press so a great friend of mine 🙂 used hers to press it on to the shorts. Here is a copy of the file in Cricut Design Space. I actually used three different fonts to create the name – Heartbreaker, Amastery and Harrington.
What do you plan to make from your current “stash”?

Oh my goodness. So adorable!
That is the sweetest little outfit and headband. I love the color!
Roseann, that’s adorable! I see what you’re showing us how to do…it’s like making a fabric yo yo with a twist. I love to make fabric yo yos. You can use them to decorate absolutely anything, and it looks so sweet as a baby headband. Love that soft lavender too.
So adorable! I have no need for a baby outfit right now but will certainly keep this saying in mind when a new baby comes along in the extended family. Thanks for sharing a great project.

This is such a crazy cute baby outfit! I’d have loved a version of this for my boys, but everyone knows that I’M always the reason we’re late, haha!
Awwww. This is super! What a good use of all the things you had on hand to create a very special gift. I would have loved this for my babies, I imagine this would have been a hit with Ellie’s parents.
