Felt Flower Headband

Tuesday, November 15, 2011
I feel like I’ve been in a creative slump lately.
Ideas come then go. Some of these ideas I test out, but most of them have turned into epic fails.
I think sometimes your creative vision can get blurred.
You can look and look at something but you just can’t see it.
You know that it can be turned into something a-mazing, you just can’t see what.

Then today I had one of my friends come over for a visit. We chatted and looked at some awesome 90’s craft books We talked about ideas we had about things to make, and about doing some craft fairs in a year or so.

After our visit something seemed to just click. It seemed like all of sudden I had five ideas for headbands I wanted to make. I knew what I wanted them to look like and how I was going to make them. I then sat down and actually made one, and it turned out how I wanted it to on the first try!

It took all my willpower not to shout

So, for all those in a creative slump, keep trying.
No matter what your vision will always clear and something will always click.

Here it is, the felt flower headband:

Isn’t it just lovely?

Aww, felt. There is a reason I love you so much. You just make everything gosh darn adorable.

These flowers are similar to the ones in the tutorial I did here.
To achieve the look of the flowers in the headband, don’t scallop the edges.

I will also be posting a tutorial for the headband soon.
They are super easy and absolutely perfect for winter!

Happy Crafting!
