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).
