flower head bands

My friend had a baby shower so I decided to make some homemade gifts.
I love these cute flowers, I can't get enough.

For this one I started with a piece of felt cut into a circle and glued some tule to it.
Then I adjusted the stitch length to 4.5 to gather the fabric

Then you just wind it into a circle 
This time I'm just going to turn it over and apply glue (hot glue) all over the bottom of it then place it on the felt circle. 
There, that makes it clean, fast and easy. (you'll see the flower if I turn it over)
So I love it! and I just attached it to some white cotton that I made into a head band.
To make this one I just attached tule to the top of it and gathered it all together at the same time.

And here is a picture of how to gather in case there is someone out there that does not know how. You just pull the string after you have sewn it on the longest stitch length.

And while on my flower kick I made another flower necklace
I love it, it is so cute and I want it for my self but it's actually a special order from a friend of a friend!
I also made this white one so she could chose which one she likes...
And guess what?  She liked them both! I think this is the first project that I actually made and sold!
Woo hoo! but I can't quit my day job just yet.
Thanks for looking!
I will be linking to these parties...

sew many ways
