flower headbands

I know these are not an original design but I had to share how much fun I have been having making these flower headbands - mostly the flowers.  I have been making the flowers for awhile as pins for my baby hats but I started getting jealous of how cute those babies were looking.  So I took some old headbands I uncovered (coincidently while I was cleaning out the craft room) and took a break to make myself some new accessories.







I love making these.  I get to use up all my scrap fabric and better than that, I get to repurpose all my favorite but oh so ruined clothes into cute new accessories.  How perfect!

I hate taking pictures of myself - they NEVER turn out cute.  But I really wanted to show you these on a real head and since the hubby doesn't like modeling for me and I am too impatient to wait until tomorrow when I can use my sis or sis-in-law and have nice lighting, you get nasty, dark, blurry cellphone pics of me in my pj's.  
You are allowed to laugh since I also have the weird tendency to make faces in my photos because I am uncomfortable and seriously deranged in the head.

oops missed......

and blurry.....

making faces - so ashamed.....

can we settle for just the headband?

ok the best I can do.

DONE.

I love these flowers so much! Your headbands are great. I would love if you could do a tutorial on the flowers, I have tried to make them but they never look as good. Thanks!

do you just glue the flowers on the headbands? They are PRECIOUS!

The first time I hot glued the flower and it worked well but now I sew them on. Either works.
