Fabric De-Stash: Headbands

I always do a little happy dance when I think of something great to do with the giant pile of fabric scraps I have! Headbands certainly are nothing new but I did do mine a bit different this time.
After I bought a package of thin headbands I started brainstorming what I wanted to pretty them up with.... I had too much fabric and too many ideas for the amount of headbands I bought. So instead of simply gluing on my embellishments I sewed a little pocket to the back of each one. Now I can mix and match until my hearts content. This way I don't feel so bad when I decide I don't like a certain one either! Or if a little someone accidentally breaks one of the headbands all my hard work isn't for nothing either because we can just switch it to another headband. Genius, I know!

I ended up making a variety of flowers

and ruffles this time around. I am sure I will be making some seasonally appropriate ones soon enough too!
