My friend Jen (and for a while the only follower on this blog) had her 29th birthday again this week. I decided to make her a cute little headband (and ended up making two).
For the wool felt flower headband, I only needed a few things:
- Few square inches of wool felt (I bought a 4" strip at Joann's fabric for $1)
- Embroidery floss
- Coordinating fabric for the bottom
- Fabric Glue
Step One: I found a flower shape in clip art, and cut my flower around that.
Step Two: Using two threads of some off-white embroidery floss, I did a saddle stitch around the edge, as evenly as I could manage.
Step Three: Cut out a small yellow circle for the center, and saddle stitch around that on top of the red flower.
Step Four: Glue a small circle on the bottom of your flower to cover up some of your threads
Step Five: Glue to the headband, and it's all done! Wait until it's dry until you wear it!

For the big flower headband, I used the directions here. It was very easy!!
I don't know if Jen knows how close she came to only getting one headband - or none!
