Guest Project — Fall Headband Tutorial & Giveaway!

1 Sep

Hi, we are Allyx and Whittney. 
 https://importtestsite.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/sidebar1.jpg?w=220
We started our store — June at the start of this year and we are so excited to be on Tatertots and Jello to share a tutorial with you and to host a give away!

We specialize in clothing, headbands, and up-cycled vintage suitcases. Everything we make is our own design and hand-made! We hope you find something you love.

Tutorial!!
First find a headband, pick out some cute fabric, and get three fun, complementing buttons.

Then cut three circles about 4 inches in diameter. Cut three smaller circles that are about 1.5 inches in diameter.

Next you’re going to sew the larger circles into flowers. Weave your needle and thread in and out around the edge of the circle. After you have gone all the way around the circle pull the thread tight so it makes a little bag. Then flatten it out so it becomes a flower!
Now you are going to sew on your button. Sew it right in the middle and knot it at the back of the flower. Go through the button a few times for extra reinforcement.

Next you are going to glue the flowers to the headband. Use a hot glue gun and glue a line on the back of your first flower. Press it on to the top of the headband off to one side. Then repeat this with your other two flowers.

Now take the smaller circles you cut out at the beginning and hot glue them to the back of the flowers so the headband is in between the fabrics. Repeat this with all three smaller circles.

And tada! You now have an adorable new headband!
