Free Pattern Friday! Moon Kitty Headband


With Sailor Moon Crystal well into Season 3, I’ve been feeling so inspired to make more cat-themed projects. Kitty ear hats are starting to crop up everywhere, so I just had to join in the fun. This simple fleece headband has tiny cat ears added for that little extra something. I’ve transformed mine into Luna, Artemis, and Diana, but you could leave yours plain for a more classic look.

Since fleece is so easy to work with and skipping the applique still makes for a fantastic looking headband, I think this project would be great for complete beginners. It’s also my first multi-sized pattern! The length of the headband you cut depends on the size of your head after measuring, so be sure to check that first before you get started. It ranges from 19” heads to 25” heads so it should fit many kids as well as adults.

  1. OMG. I am in love and so excited to sew this. I’m even contemplating creating a costume around it for Halloween. <3

  2. I love your tutorials! I am trying to learn to sew so I can make your plushes. I just have one question. Should I add the seam allowance, or is the seam allowance already added?

    1. Thanks so much! The seam allowance is already included in all of my patterns 😀 In a lot of cases you’ll see both a solid cutting line on the pattern as well as a dotted stitching line. And the actual amount of the seam allowance is listed on the pattern piece. It’s usually ¼” for plushies and ½” for other projects like handbags, cases, and pouches.
