DIY Gift: Pretty earphones for your daughter

DIY Gift: Pretty earphones for your daughter

If, like most girls her age, your daughter’s life revolves around phone and music, a set of pretty earphones embellished with embroidery will show you really “get” her.

You need

  • Plain earphones
  • Pretty fabric
  • Embroidery hoop, thread and needle
  • Fabric marking pen
  • Scissors

To make

  1. Place the fabric over the earphones’ headband and pin to hold in place. Mark the outlineof the headband and draw the position of the blossoms.
  2. Remove the fabric and place it in the embroidery hoop. Embroider the petals of the blossoms in satin stitch, using three strands of embroidery thread. In the centre of each blossom, work a few French knots using two strands of embroidery thread.
  3. Add 1cm-wide seam allowances all around the headband’s outline. Cut out the top of the headband cover, as well as a second piece of the same shape to be used for the bottom of the headband.
  4. Wet the embroidered section to remove the fabric marking pen and leave to dry.
  5. Pin the top and bottom sections right sides together and sew one of the seams. Fold the two end seam allowances under and press. Place the cover over the headband. Fold under the seam allowances of the remaining seam, and sew by hand using small, neat slip stitches.
