  • Tear or cut headband base. I like mine to be 2 inches wide or a little less by 44 inches long.
  • Cut out leaf pieces according to pattern.
  • Round ends of headband base. The pattern has a cutting guide for this.
  • Sew around edges of headband base.
  • Position leave pieces. I like mine to be slightly off center since I don’t want the flower to be smack on top of my head. Check in the mirror and adjust as needed.
  • Sew on leave pieces.
  • Form flower piece by twisting and folding fabric until you achieve your desired look. On the polka dot one I twisted more and on the solid one I folded more.
  • Pin flower.
  • Sew flower on. You can randomly sew if you want but I liked the results best when I sewed in a sort of spiral motion.
  • And your done. Super easy right?
