From Pinterest With Love #3

Hey! I finally got a project done! Can you believe it? It only took me about a month since I started it, but it’s done. If I had a free hour, it would’ve been done in that time, but life happens and taking care of a baby, a husband and a house is priority number one around here. Anyways, here’s a cute project I found on Pinterest from Coral and Co. It’s a knot bow headband and Olivia is going to love it!

The materials are pretty simple, some knit fabric, the pattern she provided on the site, a sewing machine, needles, scissors, and, in my case, some Easy Knit Interfacing. I say in my case because this knit stretched two ways and the interfacing helped give it shape and keep it from rolling.

With that said, the first thing I needed to do was to fuse the Easy Knit to my fabric. It is applies on the backside with a hot iron. The interfacing stretches in one direction, so you want to make sure you align this stretch with the fabric’s stretch in the same direction. It also has a shiny/sticky side that goes against the fabric.

Section by section, press a hot iron with steam on the fabric with a damp press cloth in between. The purpose of the cloth is to keep your iron clean and away from any glue and to provide the moisture and heat that will activate the adhesive. Lift and press, lift and press, until it’s all fused together.

Fold the fabric in half and lay the pattern down. Pin in place before cutting.

Cut two pieces for each pattern. I made two headbands, so I had 4 pieces cut out.

Pin the two pieces together with right sides facing each other.

I have a very basic sewing machine without any special needles or specialty “feet”. I don’t have a walking foot or a double needle. So, I went with a zigzag stitch and it worked perfectly. I also used regular thread and have had no problems so far. Sew along all sides leaving a 1-2” gap.
