Feed the corner of 1 square through the hairband. Fold in half over hairband to create a pointed, spade shape. Pin into place.

Using tapestry needle and yarn, either whip stitch or mattress stitch square edges together, easing where necessary to compensate for the gathering of the square’s fabric.

Repeat with the second square on the opposite side of the hairband.

Sew together the joining points of the two squares on the hairband.

And, you’re done!
