Guest Blogger Chrissy from Whimsical Poppysmic and a Giveaway

I am so very excited to have Chrissy from Whimsical Poppysmic as today's guest blogger. Chrissy is a fabulous blogger and a great friend! Chrissy's blog is a mash up of style, crafts, giveaways, humor and feature posts.   I love Chrissy's weekly Awkward and Awesome post with the highs and lows of that week. I spend hours each week playing on Etsy and I always check out Chrissy's Etsy Shop. I am so lucky to have an amazing giveaway from Whimsical Poppysmic. Chrissy is fabulous and a must read/follow/love… she rocks!

Hi, I am Chrissy from Whimsical Poppysmic!
The sweet Kate has asked me to do a guest post for her
amazing blog – thank you so much, Kate I am very honored to be here today!
I am a very crafty person, I love knitting, sewing, embroidery and I have
a passion for everything felt! That’s why I opened my etsy shop
Whimsical Poppysmic last December!
I would like to show you all, how to make a cute felt flower headband!
  1. These are the supplies you will need:
-  some felt
- embroidery floss
-  scissors
-  a cute button
- an elastic headband
2.  Trace a circle shaped template (in any size you like):
3.    We need 6 felt circles:
4.    Cut out the felt circles:
5.  Now we should have 6 felt circles:
6.   Fold the circles as shown below, first in half:
7.   Then in half again:
8.  Then attach the first folded felt circle to the middle of another felt circle
as shown below:
9.  Make sure to attach is securely, we don’t want it to be loose:
10.  Attach the other 3 folded felt circles as pictured below:
13.  Next step is to sew a button into the middle of the flower:
14.  Then take felt circle no.6 and attach it to the bottom of the flower
with the elastic headband in between:
15.   This is what it looks like from the side:
16.  And, voila, our headband is ready to go!!
I hope you enjoyed this little felt flower headband tutorial!
And, because you have been such great crafters,
one of you has the chance to win this cute headband!
