diy: bunny ears headband
Seam allowance: 1/4″
1. Cut out 4 pieces of tulle per bunny ear using the bunny ear template. With 4 pieces of tulle layered together, sew around the bunny ear leaving the bottom open. Turn right side out. Repeat for the second bunny ear.
2. Gently fold wire in half and insert into one ear, shaping the wire inside to conform to the shape of the bunny ear. Twist the wire at the bottom, and with a dab of glue on the center bottom portion of the tulle (the ear opening), pinch the bottom of the ear together.
3. Identify placement of each bunny ear on your headband, then twist the wire ends around the headband to secure on. Add a dab of glue to one end of the headband to attach the ribbon. Wrap entire length of the headband with your fabric strip/ribbon, continue to glue as needed until the entire headband is wrapped.
4. Using a wire cutter, cut at the base of the flower to take off the main stem, and then glue onto desired spot on the headband. Continue until you have enough flowers covering the top of the headband.
These are such sweet, whimsical bunny ears perfect for wearing this spring and Easter. I only made two because I didn’t think the older girls would want one, but they are begging for their own bunny ears headband. I think a cat version of this would be lovely too.
These Catimini dresses from Childrensalon are so wonderfully playful for spring; the pops of color and pattern are absolutely cheerful. I love how the pink of Soul’s dress looks like a flower, but upon closer inspection, you’ll see it’s a bird. Soul actually tried to claim both dresses for herself, but I had to remind her that she must share. When she first laid eyes on them, she exclaimed, “These are totally my style!” Oh that girl is such a little fashionista and she knows what she likes. Sometimes, she’ll ask me to pick her clothes out, but I get nervous because I almost always never pick what she has in mind, and then she gets mad that I didn’t pick what she was thinking. Thankfully, there was no fighting with these pretty Catimini dresses.
