Playing with Headscarves...

A few weeks ago I decided to draft my own headscarf pattern for baby Stephanie.  I see headscarves everywhere at the moment and just adore them.  The 50's-60's style ones look super cute on little girls.  My friend is always posting pics on Instagram of her gorgeous toddler Zara donning funky headscarves. So I thought I'd whip one up for Steph.

I think I came up with a pretty good pattern.  Only problem is the sizing wasn't quite right for babies!  This one is just a tad too big for a 5 month old, but perfect for ages 3 to 8.  I gave this one to my friends daughter, who fell in love with it immediately.  I only wish I had have made her pose for a photo so that I could share it with you!

The scarf came together really easily.  It's a nice quick project.  When I get the chance, I'll be playing around with sizings a little bit more and might even post a free pattern and tutorial.

I'm loving this fabric too.  I can't share the name of the print, as it came from my stash that was kindly given to me from my cousin. I love that I have about 3m of it though!  I'd love to whip up a little skirt or a pair of cute shorts for Hannah out of it too.  Ooh! Or dare I say matching shorts for the girls??? hehe.

Do you ever look at something & think, "Oh I can do that!  It'll be easy!" or do you play it safe and prefer to follow a pattern?


  1. Gorgeous! Steph looks so cute in that picture, like she's about to bust out with some rap ;)

  2. OMG she is so cute and I would do the matching shorts how cute with a headscarf and plain white tee

  3. Steph is saying "Mummy come in, what are you doing".
    The fabric is awesome, just perfect for a head scarf and yes you so have to do matching shorts for the girls. X


I love reading your comments and value each and every one of them!
