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”?
