My daughter Kiah got 2 Liv Dolls for Christmas this year! If you haven't heard of these dolls, they are kind of like a mixture of barbie and brats dolls. They are way cute. Their hair is removable and they come with different wigs you can change them out to have different hair. Kiah wanted to me play with her this morning, and I was telling her how when I was a little girl I would hand sew my barbies new outfits to wear! And more than actually playing barbies with my sisters, I would be a shop owner and "sell" all my handmade clothes to my sisters, for their barbies! LOL Well I guess much hasn't changed, I still LOVE to create things by hand. And even have my own real shop on etsy. :)
Anywho... as I was playing with one of her Liv Dolls, dressing her up and doing her hair, I was thinking.. she NEEDED a cute little something for her hair! I sat for a minute thinking how I could make a small enough clip for her.. then I realized I could make a cute little headband super quick and EASY! :) So I did. And we both just LOVED how it turned out that I decided to share the quick Tutorial with you! :)
Thin Elastic hair band
scrap of felt
and little ribbon rosette
or any small flower of some sort.
I made this one with satin ribbon.. but I have seen similar ones for sale in the walmart craft/fabric section.
Take elastic and wrap around your dolls head for measurement. You will want to cut a smidgen shorter than her head measurement, since its elastic and it will stretch to fit snugly on her head!
Cut the elastic...
Cut a small circle from the felt to fit the back of your rosette.
Add a good amount of hot glue to the back of your rosette.
stick both ends of your elastic in the glue!
Cover with the felt!
Then accessorize your Liv Doll and have a fun little Photo Shoot!
Did I go overboard, or what? LOL I admit it was really fun taking pictures of her! :) And making the headband took me about 2 minutes, if that! :)
What do you think? Wouldnt your daughter just LOVE one of these for her barbie or Liv doll??
