Fabric Flowers Valentine Headband Tutorial
- fabric (1-2 inches wide, 44-45 inches long.)
- needle and thread
- hot glue gun and hot glue stick
- iron and ironing board
- small pieces of felt
- Grab your fabric and scissors. Make a cut that is about 1 to 1 1/2 inches wide. (I just eyeball it.)
- Tear the fabric. You want to do this along the long edge. In the end, you want the torn piece to be about 45 inches long.
- Once it is all torn iron it out flat.
- Grab your needle and thread and start gathering the strip of fabric.
- Tie off the thread at the end of your gathering. You do not want it tightly gathered, but more loosely.
- Then you will take the gathered strip and make it into a circle. Make the fabric overlap each other- your outer layer should be larger than your inner. You are going to wind it in.
- Cut out a circle of felt that will fit under your fabric circle. Put hot glue on it.
- Place the circle you made onto the felt circle. Use more hot glue to make sure the whole circle is glued down.
- Grab a few more scraps of felt and cut out two hearts. I made the white heart a little larger than the red one.
- Glue the hearts lightly together. (I added a button on top for extra decoration.)
- Get your headband. Put it on your head and find the best place for the circle of fabric you are going to glue onto it. You will be sorry if you do not look first to pick where you want it. (I like mine more to the side.) Then put hot glue where you want the fabric piece to go.
- After the fabric piece is glued on a take another small piece of felt and glue that on also. It helps to hold the fabric piece to the headband.
There you go- a simple Valentine’s headband! What do you think?
