Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing
  • Use a rotary mat and cutter (recommended)

Pattern Description:

Fabric lover? Or ribbon lover? It doesn't matter - with this 3-in-1 e-book for beginners, you can choose your favorite method!

This versatile accessory is perfect for a formal occasion or for every day use! You'll learn the following techniques with step-by-step instructions and 40 photographs:

*How to make the Annabelle flower out of fabric
*How to make the flower out of ribbon
*How to attach it to a clip
*How to mount your flowers to a headband - either a fold-over elastic headband for babies or a hard, skinny headband for older girls or adults

This quick pattern will allow you to create flowers for all types applications - by themselves as hair accessories, for bow centers, and on shoes, coats, purses and belts. This flower and its many variations would make a sweet addition to a boutique dress. I've included a chart with headband sizes for various ages, in both inches and centimeters.

This pattern only requires you to know how to cut fabric or ribbon and how to do a running stitch. In the book I recommend using a rotary cutter/mat for your cutting, but you can easily use a ruler and scissors if you prefer.

Materials:

  • 2 or 3 "fat quarters" of fabric in different colors
  • Sewing needle and matching thread
  • Cutting tools, an iron and ironing board
  • Felt for project backing
  • Alligator/pinch clip or another style of hair clip (if using as a hair accessory clip)
  • Fold-over elastic for the baby headband, or a hard wire, plastic or thread-wrapped headband for older girls/women (if using as headband)
  • 1" wide or greater ombre ribbon (for ribbon flower)

You Will Also Need:

  • Fancy decorative button for the center of the flower
