anthropologie is a great source for research.
i love to window shop there and get ideas, especially for crafting fun gifts for friends.
a few weeks ago, my friend leigh admired these headbands, which fetch a mean price of anywhere from 32.00 to 38.00.
i decided to whip up my own version for her birthday.
i just put together some fabric flowers with bead accents, sewed them onto a fabric strip base, and then attached them to the headbands with a series of tight thread loops. they looked adorable in her hair this weekend!
here are a few detail shots.
make yourself some! spring has sprung!
