Cutting fleece with fabric scissors

1. Cut 2 segments of fleece measuring 2.5 x 22 inches each.

Overlap fleece segments

2. Lay one segment horizontally on your work surface with the other vertically on top of it.

3. Take the left side of the horizontal strip and fold it over the other, so that the ends of the horizontal strip meet on the right side.

4. Bring the ends of the vertical strip together so the two strips interlock.

5. Bring the ends of both strips together so that all four layers (two from each side) meet.

6. Pin the four layers in place.

Sewing layers of fleece together

7. Carefully sew through all 4 layers.

Trimming the edge of fleeece

8. Tie a double knot and cut away the excess thread. If necessary, trim the edges of the fleece to straighten them out.

Hand-stitching fleece to secure

9. Add a few hand stitches to keep the fleece in place. I added a few stitches near the center where the fleece interlocked, in order to keep the fleece strips from shifting.

Glue jewel embellishment to fleece headband

10. Pin the brooch to the center of the head wrap where the two strips interlock. If you’d like, glue the brooch in place to secure it. This is ideal if you are not planning to re-use the brooch.
