This is a really fun flower that can be worn by baby girls, Women, and everyone in between.
I really love this flower!
The fabric I used for this flower is Pink Python from the Urban Angel Collection. I’ve used this type of flower on the Jack N Jill Hat and on a mod podge headband from the Headband Holder post. I’ve wanted to show you how to do this for a while, but I’m just getting around to it. 🙂
Fabric (1/8 yard or scraps)
Single Prong Clip
2 Felt Circles
Hot Glue Gun
For this flower I used one size of circle for both layers. You can use a bigger circle for your base if you’d like. (I’d make it 1/2″ to 1″ bigger).
First decide how big you want your flower to be. Find a circle pattern the size you want your flower. Cut 8 circles out.
I made my flower 3″ wide.
Fold your first circle in half.
Then in half again.
Take some scissors and round the edge like you would if you were making a heart.
This is what it should look like.
Now open it up and you have a little flower petal. Do this to all 8 circles.
To get your flower petal to fray and wrinkle up like this, roll it around in your hand and really rough it up. Repeat this process with all 8 of your petals.
You will need to fold each petal and glue it to a felt circle. I’m using a pre-cut circle from The Ribbon Retreat in Flannel Grey.
Take a petal and fold it in half twice. Put a dab of glue in the fold to hold it in place.
Continue gluing the petals onto your felt circle.
For my second level put my petals over the seam. (Shown above).
Continue gluing the second layer petals on.
When you are done with the second level, put a button in the center of the flower. I used a button from my Flirtation Button Jar.
To glue my clip onto the back I put hot glue on the inside of the TOP prong of my clip. (It looks like the bottom because I’m holding it upside down to put the glue on).
I put a felt circle over the glue.
I put some more glue on my felt circle that is attached to the flower.
Then I put the top of the clip over the glue. The top prong of the clip is sandwiched between two felt circles. This is just another way to glue a clip to a bow or flower.
Take one more second to admire your pretty flower and then go put in in someone’s hair!
The great thing about using fabric is you can make this flower WHATEVER size you want!
Make tiny ones for a newborn or pigtails, make a huge one with different sized layers for a purse, or make a medium one for your own hair or a brooch.
I bet you could think of a million ways to use this flower!
