What are the best fabrics for DIY flower headbands?
A DIY flower headband is an excellent project for using up your weird fabric scraps, but you can’t use just any fabric.
You want to choose a fabric that has some BODY to it.
What does that mean? Well, if it flops over, skip it. You want your flowers to hold some shape, and a drapey floppy fabric won’t cut it.
I designed this project for knit fabrics. Here I’m using a variety of sweater knit fabric scraps.
