Default Re: Flower FOE headbands??

Once your headband is sewn all you have to do is attach the flowers. I double up my petals and sew them to the headband. Then glue a jewel in the center. I also put a small strip of felt on the inside of the headband to cover up stitching. The felt also keeps the headband from stretching between the flowers and creating gaps.

Sometimes I lay the petals really flat, and sometimes I put them very close to get the flowers to "stand up" more.

Here's a pic of a finished product.

Thank you!!! Your pic is exactly what I want to make. How do you sew the flowers onto the foe? That is where I am drawing a blank. Do you somehow sew them near the center hole?? I'm guessing the gem will cover the stitches? But I don't get how to sew them. LOL Guess I'm blond when it comes to this.
