Make a snip about 1 - 2 inches wide on the fabric you want on the base, and TEAR your fabric. It is amazing how cool this ends up looking, and how it comes out in a straight line! If your first tear is not straight compared to your edge, make another snip and tear again. The grain will stay the same, but may not be in line with the manufactured/cut original edge.
Lay them on top of eachother, so the wider one is on bottom. If you want to taper your ends slightly, do that now with scissors.
Now to add flowers.
Tear a piece of fabric about 1" wide and 1 foot long.
Tuck the end under and start to twirl the fabric in a circle.
I twist and twist my headband, sewing the circle tighter and tighter, catching the layers of the twirly flower as I go. Do this with 2 - 4 flowers, overlapping each flower a bit if you want, sewing each individually. It ends up looking like this:
That is it! So simple.
Happy 4th of July!!
