Cut out the bias strips approx. 6 x 50 cm (2 3/8 x 19 3/4 in). Please note that the seam allowance is already included! Fold the right sides together and topstitch the long side (long seam 50 cm, or 19 3/4 in) to 1 cm.


Trim the seam allowance to approx. 2 mm (1/8 in) and press apart. Turn right side out.


Pull the fabric strip over the Alice headband and close the two ends by hand.


Now bind the ends with grosgrain ribbon. To do so, wrap the grosgrain around the ends of the Alice headband and sew them by hand at the side.


Cut out the bias strips for the roses. Each should be 10 x 90 cm (4 x 35 1/2 in). Fold each bias strip in half lengthwise, wrong sides together (= 5 cm, or 2 in).

Note: If you want smaller roses, simply cut a narrower bias strip.


Sew gathering stitches with your sewing machine (along the open side) and carefully gather to form a rose.

Secure the ends well.


Now sew the 7 individual roses onto the Alice headband by hand.

It's finished!
