Big Flower Headband for babies--I made some!!
Such a tired baby! I had to wake her up so I could try on her new daisy headband that I made. I have been wanting to try this type of accessory without spending 10-20 bucks for one, so I went to Joanne Fabrics and found some daisys and the pink ones on clearance and then some fall mums and sunflowers on sale. I bought some elastic grab bags some time back that had this wide elastic that I almost tossed....good thing I didn't do that!
I figured that he headbands would be easy to make, as long as you just tried and they were super simple. I could have figured it out on my own, but I found some tutorials online and then tried it out.
Here are my first two tries--Daisys and lace on Lillian and Pink Peonies on lace for Alexandra.
I have made a third that needs some glue gun used to adhere the flower to an aligator clip so they can be interchangeable on the headband...it is a mixture of red and yellow mums.
I can't wait to go back to Joanne's and look for more flowers. I am thinking that next I will get little flowers and make a headband with 3 smaller flowers on it. Like sweet peas. I think I saw those on clearance, but knew the rage was all about big flowers and bypassed them, now as my mind gets going I see that some smaller clusters would be adorable too....and Alex would love love love the pink as it is her favorite color.
