This beautiful headband will be as much of a joy to make as it is to look at! You'll learn three different techniques in just one book.

With more than 35 crisp photos in 14 pages, you'll learn:

*How to make a ribbon rose in two sizes
*How to make a ruffle flower, using two methods: hand sewing or machine sewing. NO SEWING MACHINE REQUIRED, but if you've got one, this pattern shows you how to sew the ruffle flower on your machine.
*How to create a template that you can use multiple times
*How to mount your flowers to a headband

This pattern is extremely versatile, because you can use the ribbon flowers for other applications - by themselves as hair accessories, for bow centers, and on shoes, coats and purses. Or, put them all together as shown in the beautiful Elizabeth headband. If you've never picked up a needle and thread before, have no fear - this is a pattern for beginners!

*Note: These are downloadable instructions for making headbands. Since it is a download, a window will open to download and when you are signed into your user account at the time of purchase, it will also be located in the "My Library" section of your user account immediately after purchase.
