Easy No Sew Fabric Project

I was inspired at SU Regionals to purchase some of Stampin' Ups new fabric. There are so many possibilities for this fabric! I searched the web for some easy new sew projects and found a few things I liked. I didn't want to use this fabric for a Christmas project, but rather something everyday. The colors on the Candy Can fabric are so my girls, and I decided to make them some hair pieces.
My mom is in town this weekend, so we sat down and just started playing. The fabric comes with a great instruction packet that gives a few project ideas. This flower is super simple to make and the directions come with the fabric. I wrapped a few shreds of fabric around an old headband and hot glued the flower. So super simple!




Emma loves her new headband!

Next, I used a fat headband and covered it with the striped fabric.


We found a great tutorial HERE to make these simple twisted rosettes. Hot glue and a few buttons, and voila!

Next, this one came from a mistake. I was trying to make the flower on the first headband, but I used to much glue. So, it wouldn't fluff up. I stuck a button in the middle, added a little Victorian lace and made it a clip! Cute!




So, give it a try! Stampin' Up offers two different sets of fabrics. The one I used is called Candy Cane Christmas (#121715). If you would like to order this fabric, you can do so HERE.
