Crochet Flower Headband - Sharp Crochet Hook Review & Giveaway!

I’ve never been a fan of adding crochet edgings and embellishments to fabric. Maybe because I hated poking holes and trying to figure out how to attach my yarn. I recently had the opportunity to try out a Sharp Crochet Hook, which allows you to crochet directly into fabric without pre-poking any holes! It’s pretty cool. The hook even comes with a book filled with great ideas for skirts, shoes, and so much more!

I decided to try my newly gifted Sharp Crochet Hook on some plain fold-over elastic headbands. Instead of crocheting a flower and gluing or sewing onto a headband, I just crocheted it right onto the headband! Here’s how you can embellish a plain old headband with some yarn or thread and a Sharp Crochet Hook:

1. Insert your Sharp Crochet Hook, from front to back, into the center of the loop of your interchangeable fold-over elastic headband. (Don’t go all the way through to the other side of the headband).
