  • How to make a headband for a baby. Baby Headbands - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather materials. I used a nylon sock, button thread (because it's sturdy and I am terrible at sewing), a pair of scissors, and a fabric yo-yo I had previously made. You can get the tutorial for a fabric yo-yo here: http://heatherbailey.typepad.com/photos/how_to_make_a_yoyo/ or you can buy them at your local craft store.

    Take your nylon, and make two cuts horizontally, so that you have a square piece of nylon.

    Unroll a part of the nylon and place it over the back of the fabric yo-yo. The nylon should be rolling towards you.

    Take your needle and thread and stitch the nylon to the center of the yo-yo. It doesn't have to be pretty, since that part wont be seen.
