Make-Your-Own Flower Headband

Here's instructions for how to make a trendy flower headband for your (or a baby's) hair. This was fairly easy, and didn't take too many materials. The fabric is actually from the bottom of my curtains!

What You Need:
-1 strip of sheer material, approx 2" x 12"
-1 strip of sheer material, approx 3" x 18"
-1 piece of ribbon, approx 36" long
-1 button
-needle, thread, scissors

1. Get the needle and thread ready, and tie a knot at the end of the thread, leaving about 2".
2. Starting at the end of one of the strips about half a centimeter from the bottom edge. Sew in and out about half a centimeter apart along the edge lengthwise.

3. Scrunch the fabric as tight as you can as you go along. When you are done, scrunch it all together into a circle, and tie the thread with the other end.
4. Repeat with the other strip. Sew the smaller flower into the center of the larger one.

5. Sew on the button, and sew the finished flower onto the ribbon, off center. Trim any remaining threads.
6. Wear and prepare to be complimented. :)
