Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Machine sewing
  • Hand embroidery

Pattern Description:

I have never seen a smocked headband, but had the idea that a it could make a something that would be great for a really special occasion. It would also give a bit of elasticity, which would make fitting easy, and it would be more comfortable for the wearer.

I am so pleased with the results.

My pattern outlines how to make two different styles of headband. It introduces the basic pleating techniques, and teaches you five stitches. Once you have started smocking there will be no stopping you.

Smocking is a lovely craft, and if you have not done it before, my pattern with its simple diagrams and photographs, is a great introduction.

At the end you will have something that is unique, beautiful and useful.
