Free Pattern for Making Unicorn Headband // Life is Made with Katie Miles // www.lifeismade.com

1.  Iron a square of Heat n Bond to the metallic fabric.  Cut out the inner ear pattern.  Trace the inner ear pattern onto the Heat n Bond backing paper.  Cut out the inner ears.  Cut out the ear pattern piece.  Trace the ear pattern piece to the felt.  Cut out the ears.  Set the iron to high heat with steam.  Remove the backing paper from the inner ear pieces.  Iron the inner ears to the ears.  

2.  Cut out the horn pattern piece.  Trace it onto the felt.  Cut out the horn pieces.  Squeeze a line of hot glue in the middle of the top of the horn piece 1 1/2 inches long.  Place one end of the cording on the hot glue.  Squeeze another line of hot glue along the right side of the horn piece.  Fold the left side over the middle of the horn piece, now fold the right side over top of the left and press until the hot glue is cool. 

3.  Stuff the horn with Polyfil.  Wind the cording around the horn pulling on it slightly as you wind it so that it hugs the horn every so slightly giving the horn a spiral look.  Place a drop of hot glue on the inside of one of the bottom flaps and push the cording into it until the glue cools.  Cut the excess cording.  

4.   Attach the horn to the headband by squeezing a line of glue to the under side of the headband in the middle.  Press one of the flaps into the glue until it cools.  Squeeze another line of glue on top of the glued down flap and fold the other flap over it and press until the glue is cool.  

Attach the ears by squeezing a line of hot glue in the middle of the ear piece and on one side of the ear piece on the inside.  Place the headband on the line of glue and fold the ear together and press until the glue cools.  

Cut 3 inch by 2 inch rectangles out of the netting and tie them around the headband between the ear and horn.  You can tie as many colors and you would like, I chose to do two colors for each headband.
