Directions for Winter Headband/October
This project utilizes letters from our Blizzard Monogram Set.
Step 1.Print the instructions.
These are .pdf files,
and require Adobe Acrobat Reader software in order to view and print.
To insure printing in exact size, be sure that FIT TO PAGE (see Properties
under the Print Menu) is not selected.
Step 2. Review instructions and materials required (materials list
Step 3. Merge designs to create lettering.
The Blizzard Monogram Set consists of 52 designs (A-Z in two versions).
We used the larger and the smaller size letters from this style in combination
to spell “BRR” as an interesting accent to this cold weather
If you are using a pre-constructed headband, be sure that the word BRR is
not too tall for the width of the headband, resizing the combination as required
within your embroidery software program.
In any case, merge the three letters within your embroidery software program.
Once you are happy with the placement of the various parts, save the design
under a new filename.
Step 4.Constructing the headband (Optional)
If you are constructing your headband from Polar Fleece fabric, cut a piece
approximately 7” wide x 21” long. Do the embroidery first (see
below), then complete the construction.
Step 5. Embroider the design.
If you are using a pre-constructed headband, hoop the headband along with
one layer of medium weight tearaway backing.
Make sure that the headband is hooped straight before completing the embroidery
and removing the tear-away backing.
Use the same backing if you are constructing the headband after embroidery.
Step 6. Completing the construction (Optional).
Once the embroidery is completed and the backing removed, turn the fabric
right side in and machine stitch a tube 1/4” wider than the height
of the lettering.
Turn the tube right side out and machine stitch the ends together to create
a closed circle.
Your project is complete
