Free Crochet Baby Bow Headband Pattern with FOE

Crochet Baby Bow Headband

Crochet Baby Bow -

I’ve created this cute crochet baby bow headband to match the Pretty in Pink dress. There are a lot of crochet patterns for a baby bow headband, but I have not seen one that uses fold over elastic (FOE). Babies heads grow so quickly that I prefer to use FOE for a baby headband instead of crocheting the headband.

This headband will go well with Charlotte Mary Janes, as bows are almost identical.

Weave in ends. With sewing thread sew the button onto the center of the bow.

Overlap about half an inch, with sewing needle and thread stitch together and sew bow on. This is what the back of mine looks like.
