I used velor from a shirt I got for free.  Man that was a mistake! That material curls and slides so much!  As a result, I have a very, very lopsided headband. LOL

I used an online pattern (but I can't find it now -- maybe Stephanie still has it bookmarked because I IM'd it to her) and then sized it down. I think it's a bit too tight. Darn, I'll just have to make more of them! LOL

That looks really nice! Your daughter is adorable by the way.

I wonder if that would work on t-shirt fabric?

I've been wanting to try some of these. I actually have a purple velour shirt that I had plans on using....maybe not just yet. We'll get some more sewing skills under our belt first.  Smiley I think it looks quite pretty in her hair, and velour is so soft on the noggin.

For velour or tshirt material, I'd iron in the fusible interfacing before cutting. It will make a world of difference.

Silly girl won't leave the headband in for more than a minute. Oh well. LOL

Pretty.

Pinning should help. Probably need to loosen the pressure on the presser foot. A walking foot will help alot. I remember seeing a couple of different headband patterns on Craftster.
