handwash cold and dry flat
113 grams/125 yds @ $8.40 each (purchased 1/2017 online from WEBS)
embroidery floss to sew on flowers
pattern: "Head Huggers" by M.K. Carroll, from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation, pg 59.

- see my Ravelry project page for some notes on trying to make the decreases a little more attractive
- Shhh... don't tell, but I actually embroidered the flowers to the wrong side of the headband! You really can't tell, but I will always know that I made this error. Now you will too.
