April Flowers Headband or Hair Accessory

"This versatile flower accessory can be made into a headband, or hair barrette, or the flowers can be split up and used to decorate hats, bags, purses, belts, scarves and blankets! The possibilities are endless for these crochet flowers! I've included a backing to sew the flowers onto. Just slip any  1 1/2" wide ribbon through the backing's loops for an endless variety of looks and styles! I've used a satin ribbon and a faux crochet lace ribbon in this design, but you can use any kind of ribbon you want. Also included are 3 different finishing options for a headband."

Notes3 different options for finishing the headband portion of this accessory are included at the bottom of the pattern!
This accessory can also be made with crochet thread.

I love flowers, and one of the things I regret about Spring sliding into Summer is that we lose all the tender blooms for another year. Im fortunate that I have some cool spots so I can enjoy the Johnny Jump Ups a bit longer. These crocheted versions are just lovely, and Im thrilled to see one of my favorite blossoms portrayed in yarn.
