Turn the Back and Front RS out. Move the seam line to the centre and press.
Fold the end seam allowances of the Front piece inside and press.
Put the length of elastic inside the Back piece. Place the end seam allowances of the Back piece, along with the elastic, into the Front. Stitch straight down close to the folded edge of the Front to secure. Repeat for the other side.

Follow the Rose Tutorial to create the roses to adorn the headband.
Hand sew the roses equal distance apart around the headband. For the younger sizes you may need only 8 roses. Increase for the older sizes to suit your preference.
The roses on the headband in the image are made from Set 2 from the Roses PDF pattern.
