Aloha, my friends. It is time for American Girls in Alaska’s first-ever craft tutorial!!!
This tutorial is, as you may have guessed from the title, how to make a headband for your doll. This is a super easy tutorial, all it requires is that you know how to operate a sewing machine or know how to hand-sew. It took me under ten minutes to make the headband, so you can see how easy it is.
Without further ado, to the tutorial!
Step 1: Choose your fabric. I have this pretty purple fabric that is 32 inches by 2 inches.
Step 2: Fold one side of the fabric to the middle and pin it. This is Side A.
Step 3: Fold the other side to the middle so that they meet. This is Side B. (This is not a very accurate photo. Also, sorry that the tablecloth is stained, we tie-dyed on it.)
Step 4: Fold Side A over Side B and pin, if necessary.
Step 5: Using a straight stitch, sew the fabric as close to the edge as you can. Sew all the way down the folded fabric.
Step 6: Fold the end over 1-2 inches and sew across.
Step 7: Repeat on opposite end.
You now have an adorable headband!
These photos are very blurry, I took them post-fixing the camera.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial! Send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org if you do this tutorial!
