You can make this headband for any child, measure their head and then subtract about 2 inches off the length around. So My daughter's head is 20.5 inches around, so I made the length of the headband 17.5 to 18 inches long.
I made this for my 6-year-old daughter.
child 3-10 yrs, head Cir., 19"-20 1/2"
