Also, to see a tutorial on making a braided headband (these stay in place to much better than normal all-around-the-head-headbands that I've bought) view a tutorial here on Me and My Buckets. She has some really great ideas. You can also see my earleir braided headband here.
Basically, for today's headbands, I made a pink braided headband with scraps from an old t-shirt that I'd been using to make flowers and such. I made two white-felt flowers with bright pink thread, and a black button center. I also added on a couple leaves just for a little pop of green color.
I also made one felt flower for a headband for my daughter. The dollar store had headbands on sale that were satin-covered, 2 for $1. It was a great deal, so I picked up four headbands total. I simply hot glued the flower onto one of the headbands for a cute, whimsical look. My daughter refused to look at/smile for the camera for a picture. Sigh. She's really developing her own personality! That is a good thing though - just tough to learn to deal with!
Aren't these flowers fun? I have a few more projects I want to use them on. Check out these great blogs!
