Tights headband

Wow.. the first post.. better make it good!
I don't have any little ones in my home anymore, but I bought a cute little dress for Miss M.'s birthday and I couldn't find anything I liked to go with it, I had seen this headband at a local scrap store and decided I could make it.. it was sooooo easy! So I am sharing!

One leg of a pair of tights
One flower (or other bobble)

Step 1:
Fold tights so that the toe fits into the cut leg end and stitch it closed with a gather.

Step 2:
Fold over the ribbon so it creates loops on the ends, as many folds as you would like, mine have 5 on each side. Sew or hot glue the ribbon together so it doesn't fall apart.

Step 3:
Attach ribbon to flower. I have done this by sewing and with hot glue, I don't know what holds better yet.

Step 4:
Attach the flower and ribbon to the seam you made on the tights. I have sewn this and hot glued it, I don't know yet what holds up better. Make sure everything looks secure and then test it on your baby.. or in my case.. what ever poor animal is closest. (poor Tori!)
