My friend saw the lady who cuts fabric at Hobby Lobby wearing one of these, and we knew we had to give it a try. I'm sure there's some other real name for them out there, but we call them accordian fabric flowers.
What you need:
- needle and thread
- hot glue/gun
The first thing you need to do is cut your fabric into strips. I did a wider, longer strip for the bigger part of the flower, and a smaller, shorter strip for the smaller part. I messied up my edges before I did anything else.
Thread your needle. Fold your first strip in half. You could iron this if you wanted to. Stitch along the bottom, where the fold is.
When you get to the end, pull your thread so that the fabric bunches up like an accordian and into a circle.
Pull your two ends together, and stitch them together. Make sure all of your stitches are only showing on one side - this can be your backside.
Do this to your smaller strip. Hot glue it on top of the bigger circle, and add your bling!
You could put this on a clip to attach to a headband, or just to wear in your own hair. It would also make a cute pin on a jacket!
