Growing up I was never much of a girly girl, preferring jeans and a t-shirt to anything with ruffles or flowers most of the way through high school. I never wore makeup and mostly put my hair in a pony tail. Then I went to collage.
I don't know why but I actually started wearing more feminine clothing and even occasionally wore makeup. I cut my hair short and cute too. Fast forward to now and I still wouldn't call myself a 'girly girl' but I really do like to get dressed up in something cute and LOVE ruffles and flowers.
I had some scraps from taking in some shirts (I'm back into the same jeans I wore when I got married, two kids ago!) that I figured I could make into something. Here's what I came up with: A Super Cute Flower Headband
Cut the scraps into .5" strips.
Then use E6000 glue to wrap it around a headband (got these beauties 6 for a dollar at the Dollar Store!)
Put a bit of glue at the end and then every inch or so, so the fabric will stay secure, and begin to wrap.
Finished wrapping at the end.
To do the flower (forgive the change of fabric, my camera was acting up).
Take a .5" x 8" strip and sew loose seam on the bottom edge.
When the seam is done gather it, making it about half the length you started with.
Take the ruffle and roll it with the seam side making the base of the flower.
Sew the bottom so the flower doesn't come undone. Don't worry, doesn't need to be pretty, just secure.
To attach to the headband use a drop of E6000 to attach the flower.
To make it even more secure (because I was planning on wearing these a LOT!) sew it to the headband.
Attach two more flowers and Voila!
Here it is in the yellow.
This is now one of my favorite accessories and I can't help but smile when I wear it. Good luck with yours!
