I first made a kerchief for little punk when I made THIS outfit. It was super simple and over-the-top adorable and I knew I wanted to make a tutorial for it. So, I got to work and added in one of my favorite trims, pom-poms! The poms make it extra special and adds just the right style to this boutique-esqe accessory. You can easily keep the poms off if you’d like a more simple look, but why, oh why would you do that?
Scrap piece of fabric at least 18”x12”
Kerchief Template (Click to download for FREE) Cut out along lines. Because my scanner was having a bad day, some of the lines may not show up fully. Just use the lines as a guide…c’mon, it’s a triangle 🙂
1 yard pom trim
up to 22” of 1/4” or 3/8” elastic
Cut out your fabric using the kerchief pattern
Now, take your elastic and measure your child’s head right where the elastic will sit when the kerchief is complete. Our measurement was 19.5”. Cut to 19.5”. Lay it right on top of the raw edge centered across the top, and sew elastic on using a straight stitch.
Here’s a peek at one without pom trim…
