In 2008, I made a trip to Tanzania. While I was there, I met a Great Man of God, who devoted his life to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was in need of a building and I promised to do what I could to help. Knitting for Tanzania is my attempt to help him build a church building. All profits from sales of my knits go directly to help with his building project.

Three finished headbands
For the flowers and leaves, I just went to Ravelry and looked up Crochet flowers. The two bands Olivia is modeling has the same flower. The light pink one is quite a bit larger because I used a larger hook. The bottom band has a flower that is not quite as dense. I actually prefer the top two flowers. The leaves are very simple single crochet and sewn onto the band after they were crocheted.
Now I am working on a headband by this designer. I love her work. You can purchase her designs online. She is also on Ravelry. I am loving this band. It is a little more like the ones you are seeing in the stores these days. I am sure I will use the same flowers I used on these bands instead of the flower she uses. Just because I really am very happy with how they look. I think I will also add leaves to mine.
