We had a new niece born in our family a couple weeks ago, and along with the new sewing I've been doing for the girls and myself, I thought some new accessories were necessary.
1, 4, 5, and 8 are based on my ruffled flower tutorial. I know, I'm a snob for finished edges (and more of that to come!), but aren't some of them fun with the frayed edge?
3 and 7 are made following Tasha's fun Pointed Flower Tutorial. I got all excited to make these, and then realized I didn't have any covered button supplies. So, I made my own covered buttons with old shank buttons I had in my stash.
2 and 6 were made loosely following the Sew4Home Tattered Flower tutorial.
I think making these can become slightly addictive. Consider yourself warned. To make one into a pin, simply glue a bit of felt to the back of the flower and use a large safety pin. For hair clippies, I use my method shown for my Simple Non-Slip clippies, with Sally alligator clips.
Hoping you're enjoying your day. The sun is finally out here in Idaho, and it is actually warm outside!
