Tutorial Tuesday: Fabric Head Band



In the past two months, I have really been venturing out and trying new things. Mostly girlie things. I have been really liking having flowers in my hair, so I thought why not try a head band :)

This is how I made it:
1) I took a 2"x44" strip. I left the middle 11" 2 inches wide and then cut down the outside 1" wide


2) Using brown thread (I wanted it to show) I sewed all along the edge

3) For the flower, I took a 1"x 30" strip of fabric and sewed it down the middle


4) I pulled the thread tight and made a ruffle

5) I pinned the ruffle into a circle (it's supposed to look messy)

6) I then pinned some leaves onto it

7) I sewed the leaves and flower on. Because I was going for a messy look, I just sewed anywhere :). I then put on a button

Here's how it looks in my hair :)

You are very creative with the headband design and flower. My hair is so thin a headband doesn't stay in very long :( Thanks for sharing for the SMWYG party.

That is great fabric and it makes a perfect headband! You did a good job photographing yourself wearing it, too. That could not have been an easy task!
