For my daughter's ninth birthday I worked up a new flower headband. She loved it so much that she wanted to give them out as party favors for her upcoming birthday party. :)
Flower Pattern can be found here:
To make the extra big purple flower above these are the changes I made:
First petal round I used a 3.25 hook
Second petal round: 3.50 hook
Third petal round: 3.75 hook
Fourth petal round: 4.00 hook
The headband is my pattern that I will be listing for free on my blog very soon. :)
When I was thinking about the headbands for my daughter's party favors, the same thought kept going through my head.....what if some of the girls are not into huge awesome flowers? Since I could not shake that thought and I decided to make the flowers just a wee bit smaller just in case. ;)
I do find that since I didn't use the same hook throughout working up the flower that they don't always sit just right when they are laying down but they look adorable on and that is what counts right? :) I used yarn that I had in my stash, picking a certain color for each girl. I tried to get colors that were in line with their favorite colors. They are all going to be sewn on the same spot on the headbands, I just put them on the headbands in different spots for photo purposes.
Changes for these flowers:
First petal round: 3.50 hook
All other petal rounds: 3.75 hook
Two more headbands, one more flower, then sew the 7 flowers to their headbands, place them in gift bags and I am done. :)
Linking up today to Frontier Dreams. :)
What are you guys working on?
