Ever since I heard the words: “it’s a girl” I’ve been oohing and aahing over all the cute baby girl stuff that I want to make. First up are these fabric flower baby headbands.
These were so super simple to make. If the thought of operating a sewing machine makes you a little woozy, you’ll be happy to hear that these pretty fabric flower headbands are NO SEW!
Want to make some? Here’s what you’ll need (this list contains affiliate links):
- cotton fabric
- hot glue gun (this is the one I have – I love it!)
- scissors (these are the sewing scissors on my Christmas wish list this year ; )
- stretchy headbands
First cut circles from your fabric in three different sizes. You’ll need 5 of the largest – 2 1/4″, then four of 2″ and four of 1 3/4″.
Save one of the largest circle for the base. Grab another large circle and put a small dab of hot glue in the center. Fold in half and pinch at the glue spot in the center.
Bring the left and right sides of the circle to the center. That’s your first petal. Make 3 more large, 4 medium and 4 small petals.
Hot glue the petals onto the base circle with the points towards the center. Start with the large petals first, then add a layer of the medium petals next and finish with the small petals.
The finished flower should look something like the one above. Except for the blue pen lines. I goofed and traced my circle on the right side of the fabric.
All that’s left to do is hot glue the flower to the headband. Then put it on your pretty little baby girl ; )

She is soooo adorable! You made pretty headband for her 🙂
Thank you Helen!
I’ve made dozens of similar flowers, but using circles that are the same size. Your method produces much fuller flowers. Love it! And the sweet baby girl is absolutely cuddly adorable. So precious! Enjoy her.
Thank you Trudy! She is a sweetie, and we are madly in love with her!

Funny, whenever you hear “we are pregnant”, you see all the colours of the rainbow, soft pinks, lovely blues, greens, peach, lavender etc. However, the moment you know it a little girl, then all the other colours fade and pink stands out. Well, this how it was for me and I have 2 beautiful little granddaughters.
I know exactly what you mean Monica! Congratulations on the two little granddaughters!
Jeanine, gracias por este tutorial .Te deseo muchos exitos. Desde Colombia con gran cariño.Mercy
Thank you Jeanie for the great tutorial. As a first time Grandmother I find myself making hair bows – I can already picture onesie dress with matching bow and burp cloth.

I can’t wait to make a onies dress for my soon to come first granddaughter . Thanks for the great ideas and instructions .
I can’t even explain how happy I am that I found these headbands! They are so comfortable. I love how wide they are. You can scrunch them up to be more narrow or wear it to cover your head, tucking the end so your hair is totally covered. Works under a hat too. My 2.5 year old daughter saw me wearing it and wanted to wear one. I thought it might be too big but it works, she loves it, and it actually stays on her head 🙂 It keeps the hair out of her eyes. She wore it under a helmet today when her dad took her skating.
Oh my gosh!!! Thank you so much for this post. I’m 10 weeks now and struggling with not feeling completely bonded yet. I just got to hear baby’s heartbeat and see baby wiggle in my belly and that was amazing. Made it seem more real. Still learning to be ok with my feelings.baby gate reviews
Hi, Congratulations, auntie!!! This is exciting for me too because I am also due in Feb. and I can’t wait to see what fun inspirational things y’all come up with for the nursery! You’ll have to let us know as soon as she tells the gender, if they’re finding out. double banister baby gate
