My favorite baby headband

I forgot to meniton I guest posted for Crafty Mommy Diva last week.  She is having a baby shower full of giveaways and tutorials right now.  Here's what I shared.

When I was trying to decided what I wanted to make for this post I kept thinking...what is something all baby girls need?  Headbands and bows!  There are tons of adorable bows out there but if your little one doesn't have much hair they are kind of useless.  So I'm going to show you how to make your own interchangeable headband. 
Here's one on my baby (she's almost three now!)
You need a pair of girls tights-the bigger the better.
Cut one leg off-above the heel and at the top.
Pin the two ends together
sew.  You can also do this by hand and if you don't have access to a needle and thread hot glue might work.  I've never tried it so please don't be mad at me if it doesn't :)
Turn it right side out
Pinch together
Cut a piece of ribbon about 3 inches long.  glue one end to the back of the seam.
Wrap around and glue the end to the back of the headband.
That all there is to it.
Now clip all your cute bows onto the ribbon.

It makes it easy to accessorize any outfit.

It's perfect for your tiny newborn
and will continue to grow with your baby.
Thanks for having me today.  Its been a lot of fun.  Stop by my blog anytime.  I love meeting new friends.
