Black Headband:

  • 1 1/8" wide stretch band trim
  • 1 yard of large floral motif trim, each motif measuring 3"
  • Hand sewing needle and matching thread.

White Headband:

  • 1 1/8" wide stretch band trim
  • 5/8 yard of small floral motif trim, each motif measuring 2"
  • Hand sewing needle and matching thread.



  1. Cut a length of the stretch band measuring 21" long. Fold trim in half with right sides together, matching cut edges. Stitch edges in a ½" seam.
  2. Press seam allowances to one side. On the right side, top stitch ¼" away from the seam. Trim off excess seam allowance.
  3. Do not cut motifs apart - keeping trim as one piece, begin with the first flower on one end of the length of trim.
  4. Fold first flower in half, with right sides together; tack together at lower edge.
  5. Place next flower on top, fold in half with right sides together; tack both flowers together at the lower edge.
  6. Repeat with each flower, tacking flowers together at the lower edge as you go, until all flowers have been used. Tie off thread to secure.
  7. Tack finished flower to headband, covering the headband seam.
