how did you cut the strips

I think one could braid the t-shirt fabric right around the store bought head band and eliminate most of the gluing. Glue would still be needed to cover the raw ends. I love this project ad will be trying to make some for my grand daughters big and small! T-shirt is so absorbant and not so expensive that when lost on a play ground , we cry!

Nice. I am going to have to try this. Can I ask where to maybe find the yellow and red crocheted flowers. Thanks for sharing with us.
