Sew Cute

Sharon Holland

To continue the "A Week of Sewing" for the holidays blog post series, I have a fast and fun gift project. For most of us, it gets crazy around the holiday and you don't always have a lot of time to sew but still want to make something special. Here's a great little project that will take minutes to make and help you use up some of those trims you have piling up in your stash of sewing notions. 

This is a great stocking stuffer and I guarantee you will know plenty of girls young and old that will love wearing them. I have a bunch of vintage ribbons and trims so this was a great way to use my pretty trims. Lace can also be used but make sure it is sturdy enough to be handled and worn.

Materials List

(For one headband)

  • 24" length new or vintage decorative ribbon
  • 24" length ready-made bias tape or grosgrain ribbon for liner (same width as ribbon) 
  • Hair elastic



Use the decorative ribbon to measure a comfortable fit for a headband. Trim length so short ends touch. Use that measurement to trim liner from ready-made bias tape or grosgrain ribbon to same size.


Make Headband

STEP 1 With wrong sides together, sew the decorative ribbon to liner with a ⅛" seam on both long sides. 

STEP 2 Fold a short end under ¼" toward liner. Fold again ½" toward liner and over hair elastic. Stitch to secure. Repeat on other end to create a continuous loop.

A Week of Sewing

Sharon Holland

To help you get in the gift making spirit, I will be posting a sewing project everyday during the first week of December. All week there will be either new projects or re-postings of some of my favorite holiday sewing ideas. With many of you new to my site, this is a great way to introduce you to my Free Patterns page. 

Pets love Christmas too and if you're like me, they're a big part of your family and you love to keep them comfortable and happy. Here's a great sewing project that's perfect for our four-legged friends and also recycles a cast-off button-up shirt. 

I made this jacket for my son's dog. Sebastian is a small poodle so I picked up a 2T plaid shirt at my local Goodwill. My free pattern, Pet Jacket includes instructions for how to measure your dog (or cat) to be able to size up or down from my sample project. Construction is the same for any size jacket. 

The little guy looks pretty dapper in his plaid jacket with collar. He was the perfect model too and got lots of smiles from the people walking by!

Sewing for the Holidays

Sharon Holland

Christmas is just a little over 3 weeks away and if you're like me, you still like to make a few handmade gifts and sew up some special presents for the loved one's on your list.

For the first week of December I will post a project a day to help you with your gift giving sewing. There will be new free sewing projects added to my Free Patterns page and for those just finding my site, I will revisit some of my favorite sewing projects that are perfect for the season. 

The first thing I do at my house to get ready for Christmas and winter is to put out my wool-plaid snowflake pillows. Just tossing these pillows on my couch sets the mood for the holidays. I love the look of plaid and these are so festive, I keep them out all winter! Find the Let It Snow pillow project on my Free Patterns page. Make these easy felt snowflakes that get stitched right to the plaid material without any worry about turning edges (since felt will not unravel). Learn how to make a zipper closure on your pillows for a professional finish and spruce up your home for the holidays. They also make a great gift that can be enjoyed throughout the winter. 

Tomorrow I will post about an adorable jacket you can make for your four-legged friends.
