So, while I was at work the other day I had this random idea that I wanted to create a headband with ruffles! It just sounded like fun!
It WAS FUN!!!!
Orange and yellow goodness comin' at ya, folks! And comin' at ya fast! Check this out!
WHAT YOU NEED:
Three different ribbons. Stripes make things more interesting on the ruffles. Polka dots would be cute, too! Get creative! You also need a stretchy headband.
You will also need a needle and thread! It helps to have a super cute pin cushion, but it is by no means required. It just makes you smile, so it's worth having around. HA!
Then, just scrunch your first ribbon up into a ruffle and stick the needle right through it carrying the thread through. Go back and forth a couple of times to secure it at whatever length makes you happy. Then stitch that one to the headband. I did my largest ribbon first - the yellow one.
Next, I choose my orange and yellow and green striped ribbon and I folded it back and forth to create a sort of ruffle, but I stitched it onto the headband in a more flat manner so I could put something cute in the middle!
Finally, I created the rosette by simply winding the thin orange ribbon around itself. I kept it straight for the first few wraps to create the center and then added some twists to make it look like a rosette as I continued.
That's an interesting word. What makes it a rose - ETTE versus just a rose, anyway? Is it because it is small? That can't be it because I've seen wonderful small roses that are real and nobody calls THOSE rosettes. But, yet, that's what everyone calls them in the craft world. Strange. Hmmmm...... wonder....wonder....wonder....think....think....think. Yup. It officially makes no sense. Just say'n.
SOOOOOO.....after you have create the rose. (Yup. I'm gonna be rebellious and not call it a 'rosette.' HA!) You stitch that piece on in the middle over the flat part of the stripey goodness! AND....VOI-LAH! (Ummm...so I have NO FREAKING CLUE how to spell a word that sounds like VWA-LA. Just say'n. Okay. Moving on.) You have a SUPER CUTE headband that makes you happy!!!! LOVE!
So....you gonna make one???? I wanna see!!!!
