Flower Hair Tie...

A while ago, I saw this fabulous tutorial for a flower headband, written by Cass, over at Cass Can Sew. I've had it bookmarked for ages and today, I used the tutorial to make a flower hair tie.

Do you recognise the fabric I used? That's right, it's the same as the Lucy's Little Flower dress that I showed you yesterday. I used the floral fabric to make a covered button and the polka dot is the same as the ruffle of the dress.

To attach the hair elastic:
  • Cut a small scrap of fabric.
  • Fold in half lengthwise.
  • Wrap around the elastic, leaving room for movement.
  • Sew two lines of stitching.
I didn't bother to neaten the edges, as it's on the back and won't show.

Attach the flower to the fabric scrap, by hand stitching between the two lines of stitching.

That's it; a quick and easy little project. Thanks, Cass, for sharing your tutorial...
