I have already shown how to make fabric flowers on my blog before, but this time I want to show a different type that is very popular!
I love shabby chic flowers, and I am loving these adorable baby headbands that have this particular type of flower.
It is super easy to make, and best part is no sewing is required, just a hot glue gun.
So lets begin...
First you will need your fabric.
Chiffon seems to work the best, its pretty, silky but the most of all the ends of it easily shred.
You will also need a felt fabric.
I cut a 4 inch circle out of the felt.
And then cut TEN 4 inch circles
from the chiffon fabric.
Hint... if you double your fabric you only have to cut 5 circles.
Next fold a circle in half.
Fold, it in half again.
And with your nail just pinch and
drag your fingers along the edge.
Dab some hot glue about 1/4 inch
from the edge of the circle.
And glue down the tip of your circle.
Place another circle half way on
top of the other circle.
Make your way around the circle.
Next cut about a 12 inch long
1 1/2 inches wide strip.
Fold it in half,
And Fray the edges.
Fold the tip of the fabric over into a triangle.
Glue it down in the center.
And slowly glue it down all the way around.
Trim off any extra long fray strings.
Now for the headband.
You will need FOE (Fold Over Elastic)
Here are the measurements so you know how long to cut the elastic.
0-1 Year 14″
1-6 Years 15″
I glue mine together first and
then sew it to make sure it is super secure!
I made a pink one to go with the white one
and then added a flower embellishment
Adhere the flowers with hot glue and then adhere two more felt circles to the backside of the elastic.
I made another quick one this evening.
Here is the tutorial for the flower on the left.
Thanks So Much for Tuning In!
Until Next Time...
