AND I made them all with re~purposed kids clothes!!
The pink ones I made with a skirt that I bought at Target on sale (the Liberty of London line) to match the girls' outfits for the family photos we did.
And the blue and green ones are from some clothes that had gotten some bleach stains (not by me!) on them and were destined for the thrift store.
So, I saved some $$ and got some CUTE hair posies as well.
So, I changed a few things, so I'll just show the whole process here and I'll show on a posie with contrasting colors to make it easier to see what I'm doing.
Start by downloading the AWESOMEtemplate Blair posted and cut out all your pieces. I like having a large piece of felt for the backing to support the fabric, so my circle is rather large. I find that otherwise the fabric will get too floppy after a while.
Layer the 2 bigger pieces (however looks good to you) and then fold all the smaller ones in half.
Now I started by placing 2 of the halves together and then added the other 2 as shown in the pics.
Then, you should end up with something like this.....SO cute!!
Now, I went ahead and used my sewing machine to stitch the layers in place in a little square. Don't worry, the button will cover it. You can also hand stitch like Blair did, but I'm a little crazy paranoid with stuff like this :)
Now sew on your matching button (or use a regular matching button).
Then I dabbed some glue around the edges of the felt to secure it to the underside of the fabric.
As for the clips........I like covering the clippies with ribbon first to make them extra purdy,
and then my friend Leslie told me a while ago to hot glue a small piece of velcro (I like using the "teeth" side, but the soft side works too) to the inside top to help keep them from sliding down. It works GREAT!
Now just hot glue the flower to the top of the clippie!
SO cute in their hair......
.......or clipped onto a headband.
The pink ones I made a few weeks ago, so they are getting some cute fraying around the edges. But, you can also use Fray Stop if you don't like that.
p.s. STILL no Tink.......but keep those suggestions coming!! I'm finding TONS of other lost stuff :)
I live in SoCal with my hubby and 3 daughters. I LOVE to craft ANYTHING: scrapooking, signs and vinyl crafts, baking, paper-crafting, stamping, sewing (not my strongest area), and just about anything I can get my hands on to make or alter. I also LOVE to putter around with my camera! I love to spend time with my hubby and kiddos, we have some great times together. And I love to share my crafts with others....thus the blog :) Hope you enjoy!
I LOVE sharing ideas with everyone (isn't that what we were all taught as kiddos), But, if you do use one of my ideas....please, please, please link back to me and give me credit & I will always do the same for you. I work really hard to come up with cool things to share for free and all I ask is to give me the credit for those ideas. Also, please do not use my ideas to make stuff to sell. I am especially partial to my "Be" blocks. Thanks!
