FINALLY was able to tackle this!
I dyed my elastic which I bought on a quick trip to Fred Myers..ha ha! I had this headband on my brain and was determined to give it a go. Bought a small pack of Singer 1/4" stretch elastic and a box of Petal Pink Rit Dye. Followed the others in the 4 cups of hot water bath. You can easily make different shades of pink just by how long the elastic soaks. I don't see any white when I stretch it and think it looks pretty darn good.
Bought the flowers at Michael's and did the felt circle thing on the back. I love these!!
