Flower Headband

We found this tutorial for gorgeous flower headbands on the Perry Jayne Handmade blog. The headbands are simple to make, with little to no sewing skills required. The end result is simple, stylish and would look great on adults or children! Perry Jayne has made them in black and white, but they would also look great in vibrant colours - a great contrast to the gloomy winter weather that is approaching!

  • It's best to go on the long side for the strips you use for your headband, because I just tied it in a knot when I was done and snipped off the excess. The braiding gives the headband enough stretch to just pull on & off. I wish I would have measured...but I think I just used the width of my fabric. 
  • On the white flower, I folded the fabric over for the flower, so it was double layered, I used just a single layer on the black one. I think I prefer the single layer, but that's just my preference. The width and length of the fabric you use for the flower will determine its size & fluffiness, so just play with it until you like it. And I really prefer the edges to be raw, but you could hem it if you like.
