Step 1: Tools


What you will need:

* 1/8 yard of Flouncy Fabric (such as chiffon)
* Sharp Scissors
* Straight Pins
* Sewing Needle
* Thread
* Medium to large sized button
* Headband
* Square of felt
* Glue Gun

Step 2: Print Pattern


Download the image Flouncy Flower pattern and size it appropriately . Print pattern out pattern.

Step 3: Cut Petals


Cut 12 flower petals using the flower petal pattern from the fabric. HINT: Since the fabric is thin you can cut out several at a time by layering the fabric.

Thread the needle using at least a foot of thread. Place needle close at hand for next step.

Step 4: Fold


Take a flower petal and fold it in half lengthwise (fig. 4A). Take the folded petal and fold it in half a second time (fig. 4B).

Step 5: Sew


Pick up the needle and thread and put a holding stitch at the bottom point of the folded petal (fig. 5).

Step 6: Repeat Steps


Repeat step four with a second flower petal.

Step 7: Second Petal


Stitch the second petal base to the first petal. HINT: I often run a second stitch through the petals to keep them in place, making it easier to attach the others (fig.7).

Step 8: Repeat With Remaining Petal


Repeat steps six and seven. When stitching the remaining petals to the base attach them in a circular pattern around the original petal (fig. 8).

Step 9: Knot Thread


After the last petal is attached knot off the thread to secure the petals in place and cut off the excess thread tale. The flower should look like fig. 9.

Step 10: Sew Button


Flatten out the flower and sew a button to the center of the flower (fig. 10).

Step 11: Backer


Cut out the a piece of felt using the backer pattern (fig. 11).

Step 12: Attach to Headband


Determine where you would like to place the flower on the headband. You can lightly mark this area with a wax pencil or sharpie if needed. Hot glue the flower to the backer MAKING SURE TO SANDWICH THE HEADBAND between the two.

Step 13: Finished


You now have a flouncy flower headband.
