You can see my inspiration for this post here. These lace flowers are going to be made much like my gathered fabric flowers are made. And, they are multifunctional and a whole lot of fun! I'm also showing how to put the flower on a headband. This can be easily made into a
Lace - I used about 15" of gathered lace. If your lace isn't gathered, do that.. and then measure about 15" along the gathered side. This lace is a nice, soft lace. Bright white, I really like it. Thrifted, of course!
Elastic - Fold over, to be exact. This kind of elastic is soft, has a good stretch to it, and can be purchased in various colors for a nice match! I happen to have 4 yards of this shiny white that I purchased at a small, local fabric shop in Atlanta. This shop also had it in some other basic colors such as pink and blue. I've never seen fold over elastic in big chain stores, but it's perfect for these headbands, especially for babies and small children. I'm sure you can find it on ebay. For the record, I spent .50/yard in a store! So don't over pay!!
Button - Small fabric covered button. Covered with white satin. Thrifted :D
I wrapped the lace around my index and middle fingers, being careful to keep the edge even. I then carefully pinned it, and removed it from my fingers.
