Cameilla Flower Headband

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE anything that has flowers, I think it instantly adds a feminine touch.  This flower is super easy to make.  I usually just take some scrap fabric that I have lying around. This is a great way to get rid of your scraps.  This project will take approximately less than 1 hour to make.

First, you’ll need to gather the following items:

Materials:

  • Scrap fabric (30″ long by 8″ wide)
  • Fold-over elastic band
  • Heat’N Bond Iron on Adhesive
  • Sparkling button or Jewlery
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Hot Glue stick
  • Thread and Needle
  • Iron and Iron Board
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • flower template (see the bottom of the blog)
  • Small circular felt

Cut fabrics and the Heat’N Bond adhesive into 30″x4″.  You will have two strips of fabric.

Iron the Heat’N Bond to the back of a fabric strip.  Peel the backing off of the Heat’N Bond. Then Iron the other strip of fabric on top of the Heat’N Bond.  Make sure to place the wrong side (the side where the print is not on) of the fabric on top of the Heat’N Bond.  Now your “one” piece of fabric will have no wrong side.

Next, trace the template (see the bottom of the blog to download) onto the fabric using a pen. For my flower, I traced a total of 20 flower petals.

Using a pair of scissors, cut along the traced lines.  Make sure to cut out where your pen marks are!

Thread the Needle using a white thread or whatever color of your fabric and tie off the ends. Then run the needle through the bottom of the fabric strip and all the way across to the end.  The spacing does not need to be extract.

When you reach to the end, scrunch the fabric close together and tie off the thread.  Now take out your hot glue gun and let’s get messy.

Start gluing down the bottom of the fabric and slowly wrap the fabric in a circular motion.  This will be the top of the flower.  Then put some more glue on the edges of the remaining fabric and wrap to the bottom of your starting point. You’ll repeat this until you start forming the fabric into a flower.

After your flower is done.  Put a dab of glue on the top center to place the button or a Jewel.

Measure and Cut the fold-over elastic band to the length you want the headband to be. Also, cut a small circular felt circle.

Now glue the fold-over elastic with the seam to the back of the flower.

Glue the felt to hide the seam of the elastic band.  Then you are finally DONE!!
