my project was the fall headband.
To start, you will need the following:
a scrap piece of fabric for the button
cover button kit
glue gun & glue gun sticks
moss green & dark brown embroidery thread
dark brown elastic headband
about 1/4 yard of moss green felt
1/4 yard of dark brown felt
Here is my stack of dark brown leaves:
Next I ran a running stitch through my brown leaves
I then back stitched (scroll down to back stitch) the green leaves:
Turn one stack over and stitch through all the leaves to hold it into place:
Do that with both stacks.
At this point your stacks should like this on the back:
Lay your stacks overlapping on each other and
stitch them together from the back:
So you should now have one big stack of leaves.
*Also- one of the greatest things about felt
is it’s so forgiving. At this point (or any point really)
you can just kinda move your leaves around
and play with them until they look how you
want them to.*
At this point, make your button.
I used a 1 7/8″ button cover kit:
(or if you just want to make your own without the kit,
here’s a tutorial)
Lay your button on top of the leaves stack and coming from the bottom,
stitch up and through the hook of the button and then down back
and tie it off on the back side.
It should now look like this:
Take your glue gun and make a line
on the back of your stacked leaves
then lay your elastic headband on that line of glue:
Cut a piece of dark brown felt with rounded edges
to cover the back of the headband.
Cover with glue from glue gun:
