DIY One-Minute No-Sew Baby Headband

I’m having a ton of fun dressing up little baby M, and we have just about every color headband possible… but sometimes, you just want more. (Yep, i’m a little greedy).

But ends up it’s actually super easy, no sewing machine required. And look how cute!

DIY No-Sew Headband:

1.  Get a pair of old newborn tights… or buy some cheap new ones. I got some little ones on sale for $1.99 at Macy’s.

2. Cut right below the waist band to get rid of the thick waistband area.

3. Tie the legs into a knot. It hides the excess fabric and this little knot will go at the base of the baby’s neck

4. Wrap around baby’s head and tie the feet of the tights into a bow on top of her head.

You can do the same thing with newborn leggings for the flatter bow look.

The ideal Rosie involves wearing navy blue overalls but navy shirt and pants will suffice. Add the polka-dotted bandanna and red lipstick with black boots. Finally, bring your guns.

3. Velma & Shaggy
