i-top Button Feature - Day 7

Welcome to Day 7 of our i-Top Button Feature!! We're nearing the end of this intensive 2-week feature but we sure hope that you have been inspired by our Designers creations.

We've got another day full of inspiration so let's get started.

Today we have
sharing her talents with us.

Felt Flower Headband

We can never have enough headbands in our house and the frillier the better. They are quick and easy to make and the iTop lets you customize them. I put a swatch of tulle over the fabric for some added pizzaz.

Supplies:Tools & Accessories: (i-Top, Medium Button Daddies, iBond); Other: Wool felt, fabric, tulle, DMC Floss

Suzanna has also created a fabulous tutorial for her project.

Supplies needed:
Felt Squares
Template (available at end of tutorial)
Fabric Scissors
iTop and medium button templates
Medium Button
1 3/4 inch Circle Punch

1.            Using the petal template, cut out five petals from a felt square.
2.            Using either the inner circle of the iTop sizing template (for a medium button) or a 1 3/4 inch circle punch to create a template, cut out (a.) a contrasting color felt to create the flower center, (b.) coordinating fabric and (c.) tulle.
3.            Using your fabric scissors, snip around the outer edge of the flower center

4.            Pinch the end of each of the petals at the base to create a gathered effect and secure with a few stitches. Assemble the flower by sewing all the petals together at the base. Sew the flower center in position.

5.            Assemble into the "cup" of the iTop the following in order from bottom to top; tulle, fabric, button top. Complete button making process.

6.            Sew button in the center of the flower.
7.            Using iBond, adhere to the side of the headband.
8.            Wear your lovely creation and make all your friends jealous of your crafty skills!!

Here's the petal template that you are free to use.

A wonderful creation Suzanna. Thank you for sharing your tutorial with us as well.

I have several of the accessories for the i-Top but for some reason don't have the tool! If I did manage to get one I would absolutely make some accessories for my girls.
