#TBCcrafters 1: Ribbon flowers headband without a glue gun

So excited to be in the TBC Crafter’s Hop. We started with 25 women from over the country and I am so excited to learn from all the others. This is my first assignment and I’m so sorry that I have missed the deadline. My bad. New manager, Halloween, trying to stay on top on everything….well well well….late is better than none. Here’s my first TBC Crafters Hop’s project: Ribbon flowers headband without a glue gun. Yes, no glue gun, at all. I instead used needle and thread to sew.

Here come the ingredients first: –

2 x 10″ satin ribbons (1 x cream and 1 x lavender here)

2 x rhinestone (1/2″ in diameter with 2 holes aimed for sewing on fabric)

1 x skinny elastic headband (whatever color you like)

1 x 2-1/2″ x 1″ felt

1 x 0.75″ x 1″ felt

needles and thread for sewing (recommend to use threads of matching colors, I used black and white here to show the stitches clearly for demonstration)

1 pair of scissors

Now the instructions: –

1) Heat seal the 2 piece of satin ribbons. Run a thread from one side to another side on the edge of the ribbons like a wide “U” letter.

2) Pull the thread from one side to form a flower then secure the shape by stitching at the back side of the satin ribbons.

3)Put the rhinestone on top of the flower (the shinning side of the satin ribbon) and secure the rhinestone with needle and threads.

4) Make 2 ribbon flowers and secure them on the 2-1/2″ x 1″ felt using needle and threads.

5) Wrap the 0.75″ x 1″ felt around the skinny elastic headband and make a loop with needle and threads. This is the base where the flowers attach to the headband. Sew the 2 pieces of felts together so that the flowers attach to the elastic headband.

Without a glue gun, you can still able to make a ribbon flowers headband.

      Sometimes I just don’t want to turn on my glue gun when my daughter is around. She wants to help out but just too young to figure it out how hot a glue gun can be.

        My daughter was easy when she was younger. Now, she wants and acts like a grown up on everything. Sometimes, I need to praise her to be beautiful if she can sit still to let me fix her hairdo. She does not want to be not beautiful to go school.
