Spring Headband

I'm so glad spring is here . . . and all the darling spring clothes that I get to buy for my kids now.

Here's an idea for a hair accessory to add to your cute spring outfits . . .

I started by cutting my lace fabric into a six inch circle.  Your finished flower will be half the size that you start with, so my finished flower is three inches in diameter.

I then folded and pressed a quarter of an inch edge all the way around my fabric.  Once that was done I hand stitched all the way around the folded edge (for more detailed instructions look here) and then pulled my gathered thread to create a three inch flower.

Then chose a button for the center and stitch it on.

Cut a small circle out of felt and hand stitch to the back of the flower.

Cut two slits in your felt so you can slip in a hair clip or headband.  Some people like to glue their fabric flowers to their headbands, but by making them removable you can use the same headband with multiple fabric flowers.

All done.  Enjoy Spring!
