    Step 1: Cut out three pieces. The long piece is 2”x 14”. The two rounded pieces are 12 x 3 1/2” with the tops pointed.

    Step 2: Fold the long thin piece and sew along the above dotted lines leaving an opening at the top. For the curved pieces, sew them together following the lines above with about a 1 1/2 inch opening on one side.

    Step 3: Fold them inside out so the seams are on the inside.

    Step 4: For the long skinny piece, work it onto the headband.

    Step 5: For the curved piece, fold some wire in the shape of two long loops (bunny ears shaped), and work it into the fabric pocket.

    Step 6: No need to finish off that hole in the middle, it will end up in the middle of the knot.

    Step 7: Tie a knot around the headband with the curved piece and pull tight. You can position it anywhere on the headband but we like it slightly to the side.

    Perfect for Easter photos! And, pretty much any other time.

      So cute! My girls and I made something similar a few years back (although just as headbands for 4th of July). My girls colored the fabric with fabric crayons first and then I made it into headbands. I like the simplicity of the linen fabric for Easter. It’s so pretty 🙂

      I see these headbands on sale in markets in Asia where I live all the time. Never thought of making my own though, and I used to be obsessed with them!
