Rolled flower headband

My sister-in-law Tara taught me how to do these headbands a few months ago.  They're super easy and fast, and way cute.  It's also a really great way to use scraps.

Start with a fabric strip 2 inches wide.  My strips are usually about 20-30 inches long.


 Fold one corner on one end over (like pictured below.)


Twist the fabric starting at the folded end.


Wrap the twisted fabric around itself.  Glue to felt using fabric glue.
I use this fabric glue which works great. 
This glue does ruin wood finishes so make sure to do this project on a surface you aren't attached to.


I use clothes pins to secure my fabric in place while it dries.  Then I keep twisting and wrapping it around itself, gluing to the felt until it's the size I want.


Once the glue has dried cut the felt to the size of the flower leaving a little bit of extra fabric.

 Glue the loose end of your fabric to the back like pictured above.  I used hot glue for this part.


Glue the flower(s) to your headband (I use hot glue) and add some bling!  I made tiny flower for this infant headband.  I get complimented on this headband every time she wears it!

This would make a great baby shower gift for someone expecting a little girl.
