After I made the felt flower wristbands, I thought a headband would be cute, so I made one.
This is my daughter modeling it. She loves things all things pink, does it show?

Scan of it, so you can see it a bit better.

It's all hand sewn, I have something like 4 sewing machines, maybe more, and no place to set them up.
I used felt and bias tape (for the ties)
Really super simple, I started by cutting out all my pieces of felt, for the base of the headband I used 2 long ovals cut down the length of the felt because cheap acrylic felt stretches and tears so badly.  The leaves I freehand cut out some leaf like shapes, then blanket stitched around the edges with 3 plys of embroidery floss, then center stitched with an outline stitch to one piece of the felt base, continued until I had all the leaves stitched on, then I got some more green floss, and did running stitches to hold both layers of the base together, I cut two longish pieces of the bias tape, and sewed them around the edges like this
so the ends of the bias tape made the ties and it was all nicely bound.

Then I cut out the flowers and dug through my button box for centers and put them on.
Very simple and quick. I've had a couple friends ask me for some now that they've seen hers. I think the same idea will work for fleece, I can make it a bit longer to go over hers and my ears to keep them warm in the winter.
