So before Reese was born, I new I needed to make some new little headbands for her. I had seen so many cute ones floating around blog world, but I was unsure what to make them out of. Of course I had seen tutorials for all the great flowers, but the actual band itself had me a little puzzled. Then one day I found some cute colored elastic. I also found the cutest lace (not stretchy) at Hobby Lobby. So I put them together, and here is what I came up with:
For my flowers, I used ORGANZA & burned the edges, regular COTTON for the rolled flowers, and KNIT for the folded flowers.
To make the lace headbands, I simply sewed a little section of the elastic to the ends. This adds just enough stretch to put the headband on, and it goes in the back so it can't really be seen.
I decided though that I wanted the headbands to be interchangeable, so I could use different flowers with the same headband. In order to do this, I took a small strip of the lace, hot-glued it to the backside of the headband, wrapped it around once, then glued again to the back. This left a little loop on the top to clip the bows or flowers to.
Now, with all the of the bow and flower tutorials out there, the headband possibilities are ENDLESS!
