Sorry for the late post, I was trying to think of something that would be in the theme of St. Patrick’s day, and while I had a few ideas, this one won out because it was the quickest to make and take photos of. So lucky you! You get to learn how to make your own Four Leaf Clover elastic headband just in time for St. Patty’s Day, and sport your green a new way.
For this you will need:
Fabri-Tac fabric glue
Two different colors of green felt
1/4″ green elastic or white elastic in the length needed to fit either your or your kids head
needle and thread
First I cut 4 1″ by 1″ squares out of each piece of felt (I just eyeballed this, no need to be accurate), then I cut the top into two mounds like a little heart. Next, use your needle and thread to sew the four pieces together as shown in the photos below, pull tight and tie off the end. Using your fabric glue, glue the elastic ends together and onto a square felt piece. Next on top of the elastic, glue your little clovers. Wait for it to dry and cut off the excess backing felt. Tada! New Four Leaf Clover Headband to wear on the 17th!
