This lovely embroidery project will turn your headphones into a work of art!
From Lova: "I’m not kidding when I say that I listen to music four hours a day (at least!). I always listen to music when I’m crafting or painting or riding the subway or walking or... well, a lot basically. I care about sound quality so I always like to use classic headphones instead of earplugs, and since my headphones are my most used accessory I decided that I needed to make them pretty so I could wear them with pride everyday! The headphones I used are Urban Ears Plattan, which are named after a place in central Stockholm which I used to pass by often when I lived there."
Headphones with a padded fabric headband
- Sketch your design or copy my cherry blossom design. You can find a lot of simple embroidery patterns online for free.
- Lightly sketch your design onto your headphone band.
- Start to embroider and attach beads as you go along. I’m not an expert, so I used simple stitches, but there are a lot of fun different stitches you can find in books and on the internet.
- Once you've finished your embroidery, put on your favorite song and dance a little!
Don’t worry if you make a mistake! The fabric is very forgiving and it’s quite easy to remove the stitches and start over.
