  • How to make a hairband / headband. Unicorn Headband Tutorial - Step 1
    Step 1

    You will need one 12x18" sheet of felt to create a felt base headband, a headband, one 9x12" sheet of felt to make the horn and ears and one sheet of iron-on. Not pictured -polyfil, a sewing machine (or stitching tools) and an iron. We have an easy pattern for you to use too!

    Let's work on the fun part first! The unicorn horn! First cut out and iron-on a 4x4" piece of silver vinyl (or glitter!) to your gray felt -or just grab a sheet a sheet of premade glitter or metallic felt.

    Using the horn and ear pattern, cut out all the shapes. Cut the ears out of felt and the ear accents out of metallic vinyl. I used clothes pins to attach the pattern to the metallic felt as I didn't want to pierce the vinyl coating. I used pins to attach the rest of the patterns.

    Going back to the horn, fold it in half (metallic sides facing) and machine or handstitch the edges. To make the horn removable stitch the two circles together by stitching two lines about the width of your headband apart. Our headband is about a 1/2" wide.

    Turn the horn inside-out -it's a little stiff so feel free to use a dowel or a pencil to help turn it. Stuff with polyfil and stitch the circle base one being sure to keep an opening for the headband to slide through.

    Finish up the ears by ironing on the silver metallic as accents, fold backsides together and stitch around the ear -making sure to leave an opening to fit the headband though.
