Wool Felt Flower Headband


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
  • Headband
  • 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!

Note the weird people sitting behind us... they didn't speak to each other.

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!
