Here is a photo of the headband being worn by daughter, who was not so keen on having her picture taken...so I snuck up on her. Its the best I could do. Sadly, my photographic skills lack compared to hers. She took the amazing photo, and made my new banner. Check out her other work here.
The inspiration for these roses came from two different sites. the first was Creature Comforts and her tutorial for a paper flower. I made some from paper, and then saw that Betz White had used the same technique on felted wool. The first step is to cut a circle out of your wool.
Starting on the outside edge, start cutting towards the center, making a spiral.
Beginning at the outside of the spiral, start rolling the wool up forming your flower.
I always end up with a tail on the bottom of my flower and I just snip it off with my scissors.
I had been sewing the layers of wool together with neat little stitches, but now just glue them together using a hot glue gun. I all so used the glue gun to attach the flowers to my headband.
Tada! Thats it, you've made a flower!
