Braided Headband with a Flirty Flower

I've made one of these headbands in white and black. 
Now, I'm anxious to give it a try in some colorful prints. 

  • It's best to go on the long side for the strips you use for your headband, because I just tied it in a knot when I was done and snipped off the excess. The braiding gives the headband enough stretch to just pull on & off. I wish I would have measured...but I think I just used the width of my fabric. 
  • On the white flower, I folded the fabric over for the flower, so it was double layered, I used just a single layer on the black one. I think I prefer the single layer, but that's just my preference. The width and length of the fabric you use for the flower will determine its size & fluffiness, so just play with it until you like it. And I really prefer the edges to be raw, but you could hem it if you like.
  • My daughter wears these headbands too, I just tie it a little tighter in back. They look even cuter on her (even if she's grumpy).

And here's a few more of her wearing it...being silly with her brother.

This is ADORABLE. I love the multi-strand headbands and must try this as soon as I get home tonight.

Also? Your hair is fabulous and you're pretty much the most gorgeous pregnant lady EVER. The end.
