January Refashion Month with Amy from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop

Again, I can't tell when I started following today's guest blog, she's well know, Amy from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop. It was a long long time ago, that I know because I remember her daughter was still so little, and after that came the little brother and now there's another baby almost here. Isn't that exciting? I believe babies push us into getting creative and inspire us. Right? Amy has created her latest line of patterns inspired in her new baby and I can tell you if you haven't seen it yet, you should, every single pattern is a must have. I'm honoured to have her sharing her refashion with us today.

Hi I'm Amy from Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop and I'm so excited to be here today! You can shop my full pattern line at Peek-a-Boo Pattern Shop and find lots of fun and free tutorials on the Blog. I absolutely love refashioning and giving old items a new life! Some of my favorite fabrics are cut-up thrift store tees. Last week I grabbed this fun sweater out of my sister's cast-off pile and downsized it for my mini me. You can find the tutorial for it today on my Blog. Sweater upcycle
Today I have a fun tutorial to share with you for the sweater headband I made with my leftover fabric. I used sweater fabric since that's what I had but this will work with any stretchy fabric. IMG_5697
Sweet and simple with just a bit of retro vibe :) IMG_5695
For my 4 year old I used a strip 12" long and 5" wide. If I had a bit more fabric I probably would've gone with 6" for the width. My fabric was super stretchy so I recommend wrapping the fabric around your child's head to make sure you get the right length. You'll also need one smaller piece for the "knot". With right sides together I sewed the long edges together for each piece to form a tube. IMG_5676
Then I sewed the short ends of the "knot" piece together to form a little loop. IMG_5677
Next slide the loop over the headband piece IMG_5679
Then tuck in the raw edges of the headband piece, slide one end inside the other and topstitch shut. IMG_5680
And that's it! Super quick and easy project perfect for using up scraps :) IMG_5681
Thanks for having me!
