This Fall Flowers Embroidered Headband is the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe. Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors, back to school, and (most importantly) fall fashion! The felt on this headband looks warm cozy and pairs perfectly with sweaters and corduroy.
Skill Level: Beginner
Completion Time: 1-2 Hours
YOU WILL NEED:
- 9” X 12” Sheet of Kunin Premium Felt in Copper Canyon
- Fall Flowers Headband Pattern by Laura Bray Designs
- Water erasable pen
- Embroidery needle and floss
- Small scissors
- Plain, plastic headband
STEP ONE: Use the pattern to cut out headband from felt.
STEP TWO: Draw flower pattern onto one of the headband pieces felt using a water erasable pen. You can take inspiration from the flower design on the pattern sheet or draw your own. Designer Tip: Leaves would be cute to fill in.
STEP THREE: Use the back stitch or other outline embroidery stitch of your choice to stitch the design. I used a cream-colored floss.
STEP FOUR: Once the design is completely stitched, use water to erase any lines that are showing. Designer Tip: I dip a Q-tip in water to do this, rather than soak the entire piece.
STEP FIVE: Place the plastic headband between the two felt headband pieces, making sure the embroidered side is on the top of the headband and that it is centered. The pattern is will not cover the entire the headband. By keeping the ends of the headband uncovered, the headband is more comfortable to wear. Pin in place.
STEP SIX: Stitch the headband pieces together, with the plastic headband in between them. I used a whip stitch, but a blanket stitch or even a running stitch will also work nicely. I wanted these stitches to be somewhat hidden, so I used a floss color that closely matched the felt color. If you want to add another element to the headband, you can use the same color floss as the you used for the flowers.
You can now find an expanded color line of Kunin® Classicfelt and Kunin® Premium felt non-wovens fabrics in cut by the yard at your local Walmart; please inquire as to what is available in your area.
