Primary TechniqueSewing




  • Headband
  • Faux fur fabric -at least a 25x25 inch piece
  • Vintage brooch (optional)
  • Not shown: Hot glue gun, jewelry pliers, scissors, sewing needle, thread


1.) Cut out 2 circles. Mine were 3 1/2" wide. It might help to make a cardboard template for your circles before cutting the faux fur.

2.) Hot glue the back of one circle to the backside of one end of the headband. I made mine so that an inch of the headband was glued to the circle. (Tip: Before glueing anything down, try on the headband-fur combination to figure out proper/comfortable placement)

3.) Attach the other circle, back side facing the other back side, with a little bit of hot glue.

4.) Whip stitch around the edge. Repeat 1-4 on the other side.

5.) Pry off the pin back on the booch with jewelry pliers, and then hot glue onto the headband.
