Less Than a Bonnet... More than a Bow: A How To for You

Well, I know you are all waiting to see what kind of 
Easter Headgear 
will be the fashion must have of the season.

And it going to be THIS:

for the blog
The Felt Daffodil -Low to No Sew - Spring HeadBand Deluxe

For this tutorial you will need:

Felt in daffodil colors
  fabric glue
cheap plastic headband

Scissors and pinking shears
sewing machine (optional.)
Start by cutting out the petals and leaf.
Also cut out a stem piece that is not from the pattern 
but rather is long enough and wide enough
to wrap your headband.
Now to make the no sew variety... ignore the pattern and cut centers that look like this:
Glue the straight edges together  and you get this:

Pinch the petal piece together and put a few dabs of the fabric glue
in the center at the folds. My pinched petals look like this:

Add center to the front with another dab of glue:

Now glue and wrap the headband:

Seam up the center of the leaf if you are so inclined:

Glue the leaf across top of the head band:

Glue the two blossoms slightly off on one side of the headband:

Now Go On... Get Your Spring On..

And speaking of getting one's Spring On:

And Miss P.'s Top Draft A Long:
Put those Spring Sewing Super Powers to Good Use
and learn something new doing it!!

You know, I've just this minute found your blog. How the heck did I miss you till now? Because I think I might want to marry you when I grow up. I know my husband would understand. :D Seriously, such fun, and your vintage wardrobe stuff makes my little retro rockabilly mouth water! I wish I were skinny enough to use vinatge patterns, and I'm not experienced enough to draft my own. Boo. But such fun to look at!
