Chevron Chiffon Flower

1. If you are making a headband, measure your little ladies head and cut your elastic to that measurement.

2. Put right sides of elastic together and stitch ends together by tying a small knot at the end of your thread and stitching back and forth/in and out until you feel the ends of the elastic are secure.

3. Optional: Hot glue a felt circle to the back of the headband where your newly sewn seam is.
You could skip this step and glue the flowers/puffs right to the headband as well.
If you are making a brooch, hot glue the felt circle to a Brooch Pin.
