T-Shirt Flower Headband TUTORIAL

T-Shirt Flower Headband Tutorial
by Momma Go Round and Little Miss Momma
One of my besties, Nina at Momma Go Round,  came over for a craft day this week, and we went a little craft crazy while our boys destroyed my house, wiped chewed up gold fish on my cupboards and carpet, and danced to Elmo on Sesame Street all day.
{Nina the crafting goddess juggling our boys}
Well Nina recently started this new Momma/Craft blog that I am already in love with, and she came over to my house to work on her exciting project for next week…
Next week is T-Shirt Tutorial Week at Momma Go Round–with a series of fabulous t-shirt tutorials throughout the week, culminating in a super dooper t-shirt link party at the end of the week. 
Exciting, right!
Well, in the midst of t-shirt crafting madness, Nina squeezed in some time to teach me how to make these adorable t-shirt flowers that I attached to a stretchy headband…and NOW we are teaching you too!
Isn’t this the cutest?!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Supplies:
stretchy headbands from Target
old t-shirt to cut up
thread in same color as shirt
needle
scissors
embellishments of your choice {i.e. buttons, beads}
STEP ONE:
Prepare to cut your shirt to use the material.
Cut out a small rectangle shape.
Fold the piece in half length wise.
STEP TWO:
Now cut your folded rectangle into the shape of a B.
Cut out as many flowers as you want to put on your head band. 
You will use two of these cut-outs per flower.
So if you want 3 flowers, you will need 6 cut-outs.
 I used three flowers {6 cutouts} in all different sizes.
{The two cutouts on the left are still folded in half.  The other two are opened up.}
STEP THREE:
Once you have all your cut-outs prepare to make your flowers.  Grab two pieces that are the same size and stack them on top of each other.  Below are 4 pictures of 4 different ways you can stack your flower petal cut-outs.  Stacking different ways will give each flower a unique look.
Now take your stacked flowers and run a stitch through the middle.

Scrunch up the middle of the flower so that it bunches in the middle.
Bunch it by pulling the center thread and using your fingers.

Now pinch the middle of the fabric so that it is in the shape of a flower.

Turn your flower upside down and begin to back stitch through the bunched up portion of the flower. 

Continue to sew back and forth through the flower until the fabric keeps a flowery shape.

Flip your flower back over and position your flowers to look like so:
Don’t stress too much about the flowers being perfect–the imperfections make them look more whimsical.
STEP FOUR:
Now, pick the embellishments you want to sew into the middle of your flower.
Then stitch your bead/button directly through the center of your flower and then directly through the headband.  See below pictures.

Continue to sew on the other flowers.
The underside of the headband should look like this:

And that’s it! 
Too cute, too simple, perfect summer project!
Happy Crafting!
Love,
Little Miss Momma and Momma Go Round
