Becca Dulgarian from Blue Cricken Design will show step-by-step how to make this super east versatile ruffled headbands.
What you'll need:
â"¢ Two 20" cut pieces of 1 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon
â"¢ Straight Pins
â"¢ Sewing Machine
â"¢ Hot Glue gun and Glue
Start gathering your ribbon and making pleats being sure to pin them in place as you go! Each Pleat is approximately 1".
This is how it will look when it's been Ruffled or Pleated! Burn the edges of the ribbon with a lighter to prevent fraying.
Sew a straight stitch directly down the center!
Repeat the same pleating on your second piece of ribbon but this time sew a straight stitch down the edge and not the center!
Using your Glue Gun glue the ruffled ribbon that has been sewn on the edge onto your headband. Glue its sewn edge down. You will want it to cascade down the side.
And lastly glue on your other ruffled piece layering it on top of the first! Glue its center down.
I love keeping it versatile! This simple design allows you to add to it. I pin on broaches that can easily be changes to match any outfit!
