Upcycled T-Shirt Rolled Rosette Headband Tutorial

I signed up for a headband swap awhile back and this is what I came up with.

I took a good t-shirt that I had used for VBS and put an iron-on at the top of the shirt so I was no longer going to wear it. I cut strips from the bottom.
I pulled the strips out to make them longer.
Tied a knot at the end.
And then hot glued as I rolled it. Still being the same girl from 11th grade tech ed, I burnt my fingers a lot!
Then I rolled it up and glued the end piece to the back of the rolled rosette. I did this with a white t-shirt as well.
When I had the three rosettes the way I liked,
I chalked out their shape on a piece of the black t-shirt freehand.
Glued the rosettes to a goody headband I bought in a 4 pack at Target...
and glued the black piece I freehanded to the back to cover up any glue and have it feel nicer on the head.
TA-DA! I would of modeled it for you, but I didn't want to put it on my head, being it was a swap and all.

I put it in a cello bag with a little tag and sent it off.
You can see what I got in return here.
