Rosebud Headband


I’m pretty sure the Purl Bee’s free rose barrette pattern has taken the crafting scene by storm. I first saw it here (how cute, right?) and in the week since, I’ve seen little rosebuds popping up all over the place. I’ve made a few since seeing the tutorial, and last night I thought I would change things up a bit by attaching 3 of the rose buds to a headband. So easy.

I used darker felt and enlarged the pattern for the one in the middle, for contrast. I really like my new headband! I may just wear it through the whole weekend.

Like my new ‘do? My sister cut and colored my hair on Monday. I’m loving it! She always does such a great job! Well. . .  there was that one time when I was 12 and she was 16 . . . she gave me a mullet. But, that may have been intentional because I was an annoying 12 year old.

I hope you have a crafty weekend. If you make something, be sure to post it to the flickr group! You might win something if you do!

      Can you get away with polyester/acrylic felt, I wonder? It’s all I can get my hands on.
