My daughter asked for a headband with small roses- not the big chunky (but cute) ones found at places like Anthroplogie. Here is our version (and there are several versions out there in web land).
I purchased a headband at Target (2 for $4). I used some light weight, cream remnant fabric. There isn't really a pattern. I just cut a strip of fabric about four inches wide.
Then I rolled up the material until it was about 1 inch wide- started at one end and rolled the fabric up like a cinnamon roll- and I took stitches on the bottom holding everything in place as I went. When the rose was the size I wanted I cut off the extra material, folded the ends under and stitched them in place. To finish just hot glue the roses onto the headband....
2/26/10 Since those directions were as clear as mud I thought I'd add a picture.
Sorry to add to this post again- but I found a place where you can buy a similar finished headband (if you don't want to make one)- here at love stitched.
Another way you can make these is to wad up your knee high nylons- hah!
